Gingerly is not a new word to me but a word that I am actually experiencing right now!
For the last week, I have been sleeping without the splint protecting my left arm which is healing but not completely closed. After night one, the pain was tolerable. That was a milestone I forgot to share. Today marks the beginning of a new milestone where I am supposed to remove my arm from the splint a little at a time for as long as I can tolerate during the day. I have been setting a timer and driving the family crazy but what else is new? 🙂 lol!
How am I doing this? well. I am gingerly prancing around with my left arm at a weird angle. I am ever so scared that I will fall again and re-injure myself. And of course since I am nervous, I am chatty. Go figure.
On 1/3/18, I go back to rehab … of the occupational therapy variety. I have so many questions that I made a list. I will probably forget the list at home. That’s my usual MO.
Oh! There goes my timer, beep, beep, beeping.
As always, more to come.
