Just a quick note on Barbara’s progress with her shoulder. When she came home from the hospital, she needed to do therapy that involved her sitting in this bizarre chair that looked like something out of a medieval dungeon The purpose of it was to slowly raise and lower her arm, as well as to rotate her forearm out and back in, at first with small motions and later with larger motions.
Well, yesterday she went to see her doctor (by herself , I should say; she drove herself!) and was given such a good report that the company came by today to pick up their chair. She starts regular physical therapy next week, but her doctor was very pleased at her progress (just like the other doctor with her knees).
On another subject, sort of: Tomorrow morning, I go in for some outpatient surgery on my left knee. Pthpthpht…it’s been locking up on me and Barbara’s knee doctor suggested that I let him "get in there and see what’s going on" and "trim any loose cartilage". So, I’ll probably be whining about how much it hurts tomorrow evening. NOT!
