....until you can't use it anymore ...
Well folks, I am learning yet another lesson on the importance of my body parts that I take for granted.
Turns out that little mishap on the water weenie did a number on my shoulder. I went to the doctor on Tuesday and had an X-ray done on my shoulder, and at first I felt dumb for even coming in to the doctor, because he did all these tests, and kept asking me "does this hurt" and I would say "no" and then he would say "How about this" and I would say " well no, but it REALLY only hurts right here." So while I was waiting for my results from the X-ray I felt like I just not only wasted all my time (an hour and a half thank you very much, where an hour of that I spent in the FREEZING cold room) but I also wasted our money.
Anyway the doctor comes back in carrying a sling and all these papers. And tells me I have all this inflammation in my shoulder where it looks like there is muscle and tissue damage and he wants me to keep this sling on it 24 hours a day for 10 days, take a pill each day and go to 8 sessions of physical therapy.
So I was glad that it was nothing too serious, but now I have to deal with this sling on my arm for 10 days! I have already been wearing it for 2 1/2 days and I am seeing NO results.
Anyway that is what is new with me, but I do feel like it looks worse then it is, except that it hurts like H-E-double hockey sticks to straighten it, so maybe if I follow my doctors orders, I will be back to my usual, swimming, dancing, crafting self again, but for now, ALL those things have to be put on hold :(
