My son, had shoulder surgery in January this year. A torn labrum from football. His surgeon came well recommended. In fact, he only does shoulders. He even works on the Detroit Lions. My son goes to physical therapy two to three times a week and sees the surgeon every six weeks. In the last seven months, he has had three surgeries: pilonidal cyst excision, wisdom teeth pulled, and now his shoulder repair. Along with his PT, he continues to see a wound specialist every two weeks to monitor the healing of his cyst removal. He still isn't completely healed from his surgery in July. Despite all the doctors, medications, hospitals, and the humiliation he continues to endure as I pack his wound daily, he keeps his sense of humor. It has been a difficult year. Today is his 16th birthday.
