Well, if you are able to read this, it’s a good day! I don’t know about the rest of you but I have a time remembering that I have to be thankful for everyday. After all, it’s a “present”.
I had to go back to the doctor yesterday about this darn shoulder. I had surgery on the 9th of April. Everything was going great and then about 3 weeks ago, I reached in the back of my car to get my purse and heard a loud “pop”. Since then I have been struggling with this pain in my arm and shoulder. The doctor did a xray but of course that just shows bones. Now I will have another arthrogram to look at the soft tissue. I am hoping and praying I haven’t tore things up too awful bad. I was in tears, literally, and so much pain. He is going to give me an injection of pain medication on Thursday to see if that will help. The oral medication I take hasn’t been doing very well and it is the strongest you can get. If I take the whole dose, I am no good. Just lay around.
Now, with all that said, I was so down and so tired of all the pain and surgeries, I was having my pity party for myself. I have forgotten to realize just how lucky I have it. I can walk (sometimes!), I can communicate (if not on drugs), I can enjoy my grandchildren and children (if I have my medication!), and I can talk with all of you here (if I don’t take the medication), did I repeat myself???? See it’s that CRS (can’t remember shi*t). I have that too, you know!
Anyway, I have to try to be happy for everyday. Happy that I woke up this morning. Happy to have family and friends!
Thanks to all of you. You are the best!!!
