Tim had his first appointment with the physical therapist this morning, and the news was good. There was no rupture of the calf muscles or tendons, and the knee structure is fine. The tendon near the knee and the calf muscle were pulled, causing a pinched nerve. Massage, stretching and ice are helping to relieve the pain and increase mobility and flexibility. Recovery should be fairly quick if he behaves and doesn’t aggravate the injury again.
We’ll stay in Rockland for two more nights so Tim can mostly stay off his feet. He has another appointment tomorrow for more therapy, and then he should be good to go, or at least much better.
