A broken shoulder

I found out Tuesday that the sprain/strained arm I have been nursing is acutally a broken it hurs worse than before.

Good news! No surgery..yippee.. It's broken in a place that cannot be splinted so I am keeping it in a sling. It's also in a place that doesn't allow for surgery unless it's a new shoulder, which is not necessary now.

And waiting the 3 weeks did not do any damage. I'll begin Physical Therapy next Friday and go 3 times a week for at least 6 weeks. I may not get full range of motion back.

My neighbor said she would take me to my appoitments for a few weeks until I can feel comfortable driving. It's really hard to reach the gear shift with a bum right arm. And a few friends have emailed to say they'd help me out....Coco and Deb said they'd move up here for me!

Very very nice offer from both, but I think I'm okay for now on my own with drivers.

I'm in a much better mood/place tonight than I was last night. I can plan to go to a few fibery places later in the fall.

Puppy will have to be postponed until after I see how physical therapy works.

Thanks for all the good wishes sent my way.

Linda, Good heavens you do things thoroughly! I'm glad they finally figured it out and you can do what there is to do for it. I know PT helps a lot if (and only if) you keep doing the stuff they tell you to do at home. Luckily you won't have to do it forever. Poor Fame. I know you don't blame her for being a normal puppy but it's a shame you have to wait for your chance, yet again. Sorry about it and sending healing vibes your way.
