Some Days Are Better Than Others
Today is Tuesday, June 14, 2011. The weather here has been just gorgeous! YES, it has been hot buy a dry hot which is real unusual for us. Sinus have been really acting up too not sure if that has anything to do with the dry weather or not. I do know that I am enjoying the weather. I know that I am not suppose to be hanging out in the sun, but it makes me feel so warm, just that warm fuzzy feeling all over. Like a new pair of socks makes you feel.
Well ladies, we have 22 treatments down and 14 to go! Whoot, doing the happy dance! I am not one to take pain pills, I like to be in control of me, not a drug. But, the pills that she has given me I have learned to take two when I get home and get busy with what I need to do. Usually eating is the first thing I really need to do, I am starving when I get home. By doing this I don't seem to be as sore or as stiff.
The PT has really helped my arm. It isn't where it needs to be, however it sure is moving better and not nearly as painful. This lady, Vicki is wonderful, I love her! I have to be honest, when I was in pain all of the time from my shoulder and not able to move or use my right arm/hand, I was really having thoughts about all of this treatment and what kind of life I was going to be living. I believe in quality not quantity . She told me that I should have had PT from the time of surgery and things would have never gotten this bad. It is like a door that hasn't been opened in four months, it has to be moved and worked everyday. So it is getting there, has to be worked every day and some days hurt more than others. Looking forward to the day that I don't have to work it so much and it just joins the rest of my body in working together.
Thank you to all that helped Leta to adopt her little fella! He now has a new home and a new mama to take care of him. I still don't have a picture to share with you. If she is anything like I am with trying to make a camera work, it could be years before we get to see him. And as promised, the winner is Rue (Jen)! So if you would please let me know which bracelet you would like and send my your snail mail, I will get it out to you! Again thanks to everyone that helped!
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessing~
