I'm Getting Close To Working Out!
Thursday, October 31, 2019      7 comments

Today, I asked my therapist when I can return to working out. She told me that there shouldn't be any restrictions on me at this point other than weight lifting restrictions! Of course this has to be cleared by my doctor first, but if he agree... Read more
Making Progress!
Friday, October 25, 2019      6 comments

I was surprised at how long it has been since I blogged! I'm making slow, steady, painful progress. The doctor wasn't kidding when he stressed how painful this is. The good part is that although I have pain (okay, sometimes throbbing pain) it... Read more
Progress Is Tough

The last time I blogged, I shared pictures of all of my battle scars from my surgery. I had a huge amount of pain and stiffness. My motion was almost nonexistent. I have now completed four sessions of physical therapy. This is two weeks wort... Read more
Eight Months To Healing
Monday, September 09, 2019      10 comments

This will have some graphic pictures so if scars make you queasy, this isn't the blog for you. I started this particular part of my journey by trying to get into my BIL's jacked up, humongous truck. It just went downhill from there! Why I... Read more

I have only five days left until I get my cast off my arm. My arm and hand have been immobilized for 49 days but who's counting? I am! Once I get the cast off, I will begin the next phase of my healing. As luck would have it, hubby didn't do... Read more
Sunday Brings Me Back To Normal
Monday, August 26, 2019      5 comments

After a rough few days, Sunday came and I'm back to normal! Lesson learned. I'm still supporting my arm when riding in the car. Yesterday my fingers and wrist swelled in the heat. My SIL's house was warm and I could almost sit and watch my ha... Read more

After the horrific afternoon I had yesterday, I slept in stops and starts. When I woke up this morning, the top of each shoulder was sore. I guess the uneven weight distribution made me compensate by tilting to the left. The left shoulder too... Read more
Snowballing Out Of Control
Thursday, August 22, 2019      6 comments

Well, today started out as a great day. Without thinking, I put on a regular bra instead of a T-back bra. So, the day goes on and I reminded myself to support my arm as much as possible, I asked for help, I kept an eye on my pain level etc. I... Read more

Today, I had a doctor’s appointment with my neuro psych specialist. The practice specializes in all kinds of neurological things that are a result of illness, trauma and injury. My migraine specialist referred me to the practice. It’s very inte... Read more

Monday, August 19, 2019      6 comments

Last week, my daughter's grandparents were in a terrible accident. I got a desperate call from her on Monday evening saying that Grandpa was in critical condition and Grandma was in the ICU. Even though this couple are my ex-husband's parents,... Read more

Take two! I typed up this long detailed blog and poof! my other iPad died and the blog was lost in cyber space. Yesterday, I went for my first post op surgery appointment. Surprisingly enough, out of the 4 incisions, only one had surface ... Read more
The Doctor's Advice
Thursday, July 25, 2019      5 comments

I got a call back from the doctor's office. The nurse I spoke to had no voice yesterday (laryngitis) and apologized for not calling me back sooner. Her advice was to take Motrin between pain pills. Of course I'm allergic to aspirin and NSAIDS,... Read more
I'm Still Struggling With Pain Management
Wednesday, July 24, 2019      5 comments

I've had tons of pain in my life but I'm having a problem getting a handle on this nerve pain. There is no rhyme, reason or pattern to it. One minute I'm comfortable, then I move around a little and am crushed with pain. The laws governing pa... Read more
Better Pain Management Goals Today
Monday, July 22, 2019      5 comments

I want to give a shout out to 1Crazydog, Gaby1948 and Jeanknee for your sage words of advice on my last blog. I simply used poor judgement when dealing with my pain levels. I've simply had so much pain for so long that it is kind of hard for me... Read more
Post Op Day 3
Sunday, July 21, 2019      10 comments

I ate exceptionally well today until I got warm (it was hot and humid until about 4pm today.). When I got warm, my fingers, hand, wrist and arm swelled. This pressed on all of those nerves that were disturbed during surgery (and there were abo... Read more
