Fernanda the physiotherapist came here on Tuesday. She revised her diagnosis from ruptured bicep tendon to bicep tear, good news because it doesn’t bring the shoulder into the picture. However, it still takes several weeks to regain enough function to even think of riding a bike. I am over my period of angst when I thought he might be offered more treatment options at home, and feel assured we just need to be patient, and make the most of our time here.
While I spent each morning downtown doing Spanish last week, Chris dutifully put ice on his arm and did his exercises. These now include squeezing the bike handlebar –a promising sign. He feels the healing is now further advanced than when we last tried a post-injury test ride two weeks ago. This time we’ll wait longer before testing again.
