    Update on cuz; shoulder socket is destroyed, last night's surgery didn't pan out like they thought. Waiting for him to come back from his post op to discuss his options for reconstruction... both suck:(.

    Appreciate prayers and any kind words...

    Guarding my lovely bluebirds

    Thank you for the update. I know of others within the tree service/logging industry having suffered far worse fates, including death, via not much higher falls than that of your cousin, hence my previous reply of concern that the team might very well discover more damage than you originally surmised. Although bad, I am glad that your cousin did not suffer some of those injuries, and you should be as well.

    He has remained within my thoughts since yesterday, due to all. I even made inquiry, for it all, with an individual somewhat high up the ladder in risk assessment of a utility company servicing Kentucky. You had originally stated that your cousin was strapped to the pole, but now you say a tree. I am a bit confused, for it all, but your original statement caused my inquiry of said individual.

    As you and other family members continue to learn details regarding the actual incident, it might be wise to refrain from discussing such upon the net, at this point in time, permitting your cousin's legal counsel to handle the matter. I do not know whether Kentucky happens to be a no fault state, but I'm tossing that suggestion out there anyway.

    It sounds like he should be fine, thank God above, but will continue to deal with much pain for a while and potentially have a long haul toward recovery. Hopefully he can get through all quickly, with only one additional surgery and as limited down time in rehabilitation as possible. You said he is a tough ole bird, and so I believe that he has a good chance at that, due to all.

    I shall keep him and the family within my prayers. Offer him much support and keep him positive through all; it should go a long way. It's quite easy for someone to become depressed during all, negatively impacting recovery.

    Shoulder surgery is about the worst joint to fix. My youngest son had a bad landing jumping out of C 130s (Airborne); had shoulder surgery last year and he is still having problems. If your cousin gets back to 75% he will be extremely fortunate. It could have been worse; pole could have landed on his head.

    I really hate it when a person is out doing a honest days work and gets hurt.
    Hope he has a great recovery and makes it back to normal.

    FYI... it was a pole that at one time was a tree... :cool:
    I haven't posted anything that hasn't already been blasted all over fb even by the Co-OP themselves.
    Shit happens in that line of work all the time no matter how careful the person is, usually the outcome is much worse tho.

    Hes got plenty immediate family that will be around him to the point of aggravating leave me the heck alone. :D

    I guess his options are plates&screws with the obvious bad arthritis down the road but close to all range of motion. If they rebuild the socket with plastic the mobility goes way down the way I understood it.
    Either way I'd say his pole climbing days are over and most likely have to join the xgun club.:eek:
