I Want To Ride My Bicycle!
Kelly and his bike partner, Freeman.
After Surgery....Yes, that is a pin sticking out of the top!
10 Weeks later!
First of all, for those who have speakers and can hear the song playing, it is a song by Queen. Kelly has adopted it as his theme song! While you listen, try and imagine Kelly riding his bicycle all over town! It is kind of funny.
Anyway, 10 weeks ago Kelly broke his finger and had surgery to repair it. He has been on light duty at work and has been going to physical therapy twice a week. His therapy is going well. He has gotten most of the movement back. Now he just has to work on getting the strength back. It has been quite the ordeal for just an index finger! However, we have loved having him work the day shift Monday - Thursday! I remember what having a "normal" work schedule is like.
I will be sad when he returns to normal duty and the royal treatment will be over! I have enjoyed having him at night to help get the kids to bed or so I can attend enrichment or other evening activities. Kelly is looking forward to getting back to work so he can, as the kids say, "catch the bad guys." He really loves his work and he enjoys working with his bike partner. They have a pretty good time together! I think Freeman will be glad to get back into action too!
Three more weeks (hopefully) of therapy and Officer Zierse reports back to duty!
