Your Support is Needed
It was another sunny Sunday afternoon in southwest Wyoming. I was returning home from an amazing weekend spent connecting with friends in Salt Lake City. Running through my mind were mundane thoughts like how I couldn’t wait to see my dog, what I could maybe find in my refrigerator for dinner, and how long it would take me to do the laundry.

So I had the BIG surgery on my left arm yesterday. They used my deltoid and achilles tendon to make my tricep work again. They broke my forearm to rotate it 90°. They cut open my wrist to do a carpal tunnel release then put three rods in my wrist to stabilize it while it heals. I was in a lot of pain last night but felt better today. I am back at the facility in my own bed. They should be the last of the major surgeries needed. I am so grateful for that.

Happy New Year! I know it will be for me. I am scheduled to have my next major surgery on March 12th. They will be operating on my left arm. After the accident my triceps no longer work; so they are connecting a piece of my deltoid to a donor achilles tendon to create a workable tricep. They will also break and reset my forearm to pronate (turn my hand over) my hand for a more functional position. They’re going to perform a carpal tunnel surgery to try to reduce my wrist pain. Once again I am Frankenstein and Dr. Loeffler is my mad scientist. I love it! The surgery had such a great effect on my right arm I can’t wait to see what it does for my left. Stay tuned.

Hey Hogan, It's been a longtime, you're in my prayers and I pray you reach your goals.

Hey Hogan! I was just thinking of you and wanted to revisit your page and say hello. I see you had a surgery at the beginning of the month. I hope your arm is healing up nicely and you’re gaining more movement each day. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I will continue to pray for financial provision, health, hope and peace.

Hogan, this but a big bump in the road. If anyone can climb herself out of this it is you. I sent a note on three free air transport sevices yesterday. Want to be sure you saw it.
