Thanks to PCAC member and fellow Palmer Parishioner, Tana Key, we were able to get Sherry in to see Dr. Gerard Gabel first thing today.

He proposed using wire to repair her broken elbow; in the course of his examination, he noticed extreme tenderness in her shoulder, and he ordered xrays of it. He found two fractures there which he decided not to treat with surgery or cast.

Rather, his explanation is that the wearing of the sling following her elbow surgery will sufficiently protect the shoulder injury and allow it to heal on its own.

Sherry’s elbow surgery is set for Friday, October 28, at the Kirby Surgical Center.
