Shoulder Update


THANK YOU!

I appreciate all the kind blog comments, emails, cards, food and flowers brought by neighbors and friends!!!

The good news yesterday after x-rays is:
My fractured humerus appears to be in place to heal without surgery!

I will go back in 2 weeks for more x-rays. 
In the meantime, I am trying to follow the doctor's instructions and remain immobile. 
That means FIVE more weeks in the sling and sleeping in the recliner. 
I know I can do this. This is just a little bump in the road (I keep telling myself).
The sling is much less cumbersome than the contraption I had to wear around my body after rotator cuff surgery on the same shoulder in November. 

In the meantime, GJ, the hubby is making many pitchers of Harney and Sons Peach Iced tea for me.

I am sorry for not personally answering your emails and blog posts, or for writing thank you notes to local friends.
My computer time is very limited, and hand-writing is off-limits for now. 
The right hand is "tied-up"  for the moment.
