Post Surgery 2 Weeks...

On this Christmas night, I hope yours was a Merry, Happy, Joyous Day spent with friends &/or family. Tomorrow marks 2 weeks since my surgery and my progress is steady, but slow. I still have trouble dressing, but I now can bathe without help. I'm doing simple arm & shoulder exercises that allow some extension of my arm, but raising it to my head is weeks away. Sleeping at night remains difficult as I have a sling & arm pillow that won't allow me to roll over onto my left side. In addition, I must be propped up with several pillows so I still need the "happy drugs" to fall asleep. Another 10 days and then I'm back on FOX 8 Jan. 5th.

Next front won't come soon enough (late Sat. Night). When we get this warm at this time of the year it always results in dense fog. I like the warmth, but I don't like the humidity. Plus, my should hurts more during weather changes.

The pain will be over before you know it, and then you will be in tip top shape.We will call you the "Bionic Weatherman."Take it slow for now...you have no choice.
