Almost Five Weeks Since Surgery…
Thanks, everyone, for all the great well-wishes. Very much appreciated.
So here is an update…
Things are improving for me and my new titanium shoulder. But still issues.
Still sleeping sitting up which does not allow good rest.
Still typing with one hand which causes me to get behind at times on things. With luck that will change in the next week or so and my letters won’t be so short.
PT folks are nice, but wow is that painful, which drains me especially with the lack of good sleep.
I am out of the brace and now trying to train my arm to hang naturally after being frozen in that brace for so long.
I am back driving.
I am walking more each week and have lost four pounds of the surgery added weight.
I am learning to be left handed and have even learned to put on socks with my left hand and tie my own shoes. I am back doing some cooking as well, although Kris has to cut things for me.
I really want to be able to pull my hair back, but no luck with that so wearing hats.
In other words, it’s the little stuff you miss after the big crisis has passed and the recovery in happening.
That’s the update, typed one-handed.
Again, thanks for all the kind thoughts.
