I'm back/ I graduated from OT

I just finished an entry and it was promptly eaten somehow.  I am too tired to rewrite the entry (lucky you!), so I will just quickly recap.  I have been offline since my computer suddenly stopped working on Saturday night.

To make a long story short Verizon fixed my service a short time ago.  So I'm back.

I'm happy as a clam.

Another reason I'm happy is I finished my Occupational Therapy on Friday.

I have been working hard at OT to unfreeze my shoulder for three months.  My Orthopedic Physican says I must work on my shoulder, continuing to do the exercises at home, for three more months.

That's how long it takes to get my arm working normally - three months at therapy and three additional months at home. That's six months!

The Orhopedic Physician is going to check me once a month and make sure I am making process.  If I do not have regular function of the shoulder and arm within three months from now, I will have to have the surgery.  Yikes. 

It is good that I won't have to go in for appointments anymore, but the therapists were keeping me on my toes.  Now that I have to do exercises at home, I must be diligent.

Discipline, Girl, discipline!

Love you all, Krissy :)

  7. Hi Krissy, I'm sorry but I don't recall why your shoulder got so stiff. Maybe you could jolt my memory a little? Anyway, I am glad you are doing well with the OT. I hope you continue to do the necessary exercises at home. I know it's easy to say "Oh..I'll do it later." Just be very strict on yourself. Make a schedule and stick to it. Good luck!
