Two months out of the loop
Wednesday, August 05, 2015
Two months ago, on June 5th, I fell in a church parking lot and fractured my shoulder. I have worn an immobilizing sling 24 hours a day since then. Six weeks ago I had shoulder surgery. I started physical therapy two weeks ago...painful but necessary. Thankfully I bought some loose fitting elastic waist clothing before surgery. I am becoming more self sufficient daily. My husband works hard to try to be a good caregiver, and I have hired a helper three times a week. If you are like me, you take your health for granted until something like this happens in your life. Next week I have permission to start to go back to the warm water pool for some lap walking and some very gentle exercises in the water I can't wait!
I have really missed being present on spark people, and I have missed my spark friends. Little by little I will be returning to my computer.
Today would have been my mom's 88th birthday, and I know she would want me to be taking care of myself.as soon as possible. I am pushing myself in honor of her memory.
