Hanging in There
Just a quick update since many have asked - I'm doing well one week post shoulder surgery. Unfortunately, the problems with my shoulder were more significant than just simple instability. Years of dislocations have taken their toll which explains the chronic pain I've had. That just means that my recovery may be longer and tougher. The doctor was very clear about how important the recovery process will be. That being said, I'm doing great!! I'm off pain meds, and therefore thinking clearly again. The most difficult part is the sitting around and being still, not the pain itself. Next week I'll begin therapy. I've got great caregivers and am so grateful for all of the kind wishes and support.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and will update again soon. In the meantime, I'll be hanging out with my faithful employee pictured above!
