Hello all, it has been quite awhile since the last update.  Frankie has been steadily focused in his PT and his doctor's appointments.  After attending one of his follow up appointment the doctors decided to perform two separate surgical procedures.  The two procedures were performed this past Wednesday.  One procedure involved corrective procedure involving his femur and the second procedure involved corrective vascular work on his leg.  The procedures were not intended to be long in nature however, once the procedures started Frankie ended up being in the operating room for over eight hours and remained at Yale overnight.  Late Thursday afternoon Frankie was transferred back to his room at Montowese Health Care.  A side note: during the extensive waiting period, Steve suffered a kidney stone(s) attack that required and emergency room visit that day but was released late that same evening.
