June 14th seems so long ago as we just slid into July and now are up nightly with neighbors celebrating the 4th each night before and after.
PT sucks as we all know but my ordeal was beyond, sadly. Doctor fired one and now the one I have though nice, causes as much pain as I have been in for 6 months and neither ice nor 2 Advil seem to do much. How many of you have had a terrible fall that caused slap tears and torn biceps that needed screws lol is this truly normal still? I honestly thought after a discussion with surgeon a week out of surgery I would feel awesome as I was repaired right?
So, with that update I have not been able to pick up my heavy Nikon and finally charged my tiny Olympus so I could take photos of something lol anything actually but still tuff raising right arm to even do that that degree needed it may be time for my hand-held shutter release or just learn to be patient, I guess I thought I was but nope I don’t think so.
I went with my other half to a car show. I packed ice packs, sunscreen, water and Advil and by 1:30(we started out at 7 am) I was calling uncle in the 90-degree heat. I felt bad as he may have won another trophy, but I gave it a valiant effort and it seems he was also hot and had seen enough of the same cars that always show up at gatherings. We did enjoy the air-conditioning of the Loudon Racing Museum where we knew many of the drivers from the past here in New England.
I made a collage of plants with my tiny camera doing all I could to keep it steady. I added tiny 4″ pots of flowers to my larger pots before surgery, also an enormous Hosta I put into a new garden just now in its 2nd year. The Blue/Purple Petunias I won at a local car show in their 50/50 raffle.
I am doing Laser treatments with last 2 appointments coming this week. I will miss them but for $420 for 6 treatments not covered yet by Medicare I have to stop and then pay just the PT place to hurt me more 🙂 did I say I hate having someone push my arm up over my head or massage me, well I do hate it.
Here are two shots to leave you with. I am designing more outfits and housewares. My left arm artwork I did while in a sling will be used for holiday attire as it is a Gold, Silver and Bronze Abstract Watercolor I thought it would work nicely in my online store, these are just two samples of course. Everyone should want to celebrate by then hopefully.
Thanks for stopping by even if you have no time to comment I know how that is.
