Injured deputy's tattoo of cross maintains shape after surgery
BATON ROUGE - Injured sheriff's deputy Bruce Simmons is recovering from another surgery related to being shot during the deadly officer ambush earlier this summer.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office shared news about his recovery in a Facebook post Tuesday. Staples and sutures were removed from Simmons' hip, leg and arm.
Doctors were surprised a cross tattoo near an incision on his arm remained in tact during surgical work.
Still, though, Simmons is having problems moving his wrist and some fingers.
Simmons attends physical therapy three days a week.
Family of another injured sheriff's deputy, Nick Tullier, continue to update Tullier's condition on the family-run Facebook page Nick Tullier Strong. Tullier remains in the hospital.
