Special Blessings-October 23, 2014

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Today I am especially blessed for the following:

1. I got a good nights sleep last night and woke up feeling much better today. I did take a nap this afternoon, but seem to need them since the surgery.

2. My brother called to check on me and we had a great chat.

3. A friend from Wisconsin called this afternoon and we also had a great talk.

4. Jim fixed a good dinner tonight. This is such a big help.

Hugs,
kathy

    The naps are needed to heal and grow new tissue. Think of how much a baby sleeps and grows. The body is an amazing thing

Special Blessings-October 22, 2014

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Today I am especially blessed for the following:

1. The rain and cold winds that we have had the past few days, finally let up tonight.

2. My friend, Linda, came and we went out and did some light shopping. It was fun being out and just being plain silly.

3. I started feeling bad this afternoon, so was very happy that Jim got home from the auction early.

4. Jim and I spent a wonderful evening just relaxing and laid back. I know this is the way that we spend most evenings, but I truly love that special time of day together.

Hugs,
kathy

Monday, October 20, 2014

Today I am especially blessed for the following:

1. After a two month medical absence, my doctor has finally given me the okay to be on the computer for a short time every day. I hope the time limit will increase within a short period of time.

2. I am doing very well from my surgery. It was worse than either the doctor or I had expected, but I am now healing nicely.

3. I have therapy this afternoon.

4. I had our family over this afternoon to celebrate Jim's birthday and Jamie was here with us for the occasion.

Hugs,
kathy

Another Update

Friday, September 12, 2014

Hi Everyone,

This is Kathy's son Jamie again. Mom had her follow up visit with her surgeon yesterday. It went as well as it could have gone. First, she got her stitches out and replaced with steri-strips. He also told her that she only has to wear her sling for another week. From everything I understand, 3 weeks is on the shorter side of how long patients who have this surgery have to wear their slings. This is especially good news because the surgeon told her that she actually had multiple tears that he had to repair. This is also especially good news as the recovery from this surgery thus far has gone against Mom's instincts. Whereas with her knee surgery, she was able to start exercising it right away, this surgery has required her to not move her arm at all this whole time. I know that this sort of healing has been really hard for her, and I am really proud of how well she has done.

Also, she asked him if she could start therapy on her other shoulder at the same time that she does therapy on the one she had operated on. She's hoping that she can stave off surgery on the other one. He agreed to let her do so, and she begins therapy on both shoulders on Monday. If anyone can do double therapy at once, it's Mom. She amazes me at what a warrior she is and how she never complains. She gets to work on and does what needs to be done.

We still don't know when she'll be able to be back online. She misses everyone and thanks all of you for all of your support. Every bit of well wishing really means a lot to her and helps lift her up. For that, my Dad and I also thank all of you.

I'm sorry it's been so long since updates but my life got really hectic over the past several days. I'll do my best to give you all another one as soon as I can.

Thank you all again,
Jamie
