Yes, therapy progress is SLOW. The right arm deceived me (although I’m still doing some things with it, too.)
I am moving my fingers, elbow, and shoulder on the left side. Slowly. The compression glove is ivory-colored, so it really does make my hand look fake. Little kids stare. Adults, too. I HAVE done my Phil Hartman-SNL-Frankenstein growl and swiped my hand at a few of them. They laugh … Dawson Daniel tried to pull the glove off last night in Sam’s. Says he wants one. I may give it to him!!
I didn’t expect the shoulder pain… It is the reason I don’t sleep through the night. Haven’t done that in 8 weeks now. Thankfully, the folks at Progressive Physical Therapy are addressing all issues and treating the pain!! I don’t know how bad it would be without them!!
The final analysis is:
- I AM making progress, and am thankful to God!!
- I know as we press on, the shoulders are getting better!!
