Up dates

Right now as I write this Ty is lying in bed stating it feels like he got hit by a truck today despite the pain meds.
Yesterday we went to the surgeon, Dr Raasch who repaired his rotator cuff about two years ago. Ty landed on his right shoulder, same area as the surgery and he can't move his right arm too well following the bike crash on Thursday night, Alterra ride. Dr Raasch stated that it looks like Ty took the impact to the outside of his shoulder (deltoid area) which may of saved him from internal damage. He wants to follow up with an ultrasound of his shoulder to determine the extent of soft tissue involvement. Ty can not have an MRI due to the anchor that was placed during surgery which would make things blurry on the MRI. Ty is not scheduled for this ultrasound until Tuesday. Hopefully all he will need is some physical therapy to get back full range of motion. I am a little ticked that he could not get the ultrasound the same day as the visit. The doctor wanted a certain person to do it and he was not available until then.
On the bright side of things, I have got myself a personal water boy and pit crew for the up coming races :-) I think I gonna like this.

Just read this, what a bummer. Stay strong Ty. Hopefully this will just be a couple of weeks off for some therapy and healing.

Wow. I'm so glad to hear that Ty was able to walk away from that crash. Hopefully, you guys will hear some good news on Tuesday. Hang in there.

Give the Ty all my best for a speedy recovery. Like you mention hopefully all he'll need is the PT.
Fingers crossed
