Thanks jaky! He has good days and bad days, but is still making progress. He is off all of the narcotic level of pain medicine now and is just using Tylenol as needed.
He may be able to play again as early as November. But, it all depends on subsequent rechecks with the surgeon.
He still cannot lift more than 5 pounds, can't blow his nose, use a straw, submerge in water, yell, sing, cough/sneeze with force, etc. So, he has to be able to do all of those things before even considering playing his trumpet again. Hopefully he will be back and playing by Advent.
