The exercise regime that DH and his doctors and therapists have settled on for the next two weeks is having great results. He is walking better, his shoulders are almost level and his range of motion is increasing. Yesterday he reached the point where he was able to do a full hour of activity without being laid up. Progress is being made! It’s funny how the thought of having a “normal” life with decreased pain is working so well to get him up and working so hard at getting more mobile.
I have been laid up since we got back from Vancouver with a non functioning shoulder and several trips to Nelson to deal with doctor’s appointments for both DH and myself. X rays didn’t show anything but after an hour with the ultrasound tech and a consultation with the second on duty tech, I might get some answers to why it’s not working correctly and I’m in constant pain. I thought when it first started that it was due to the move but it might be a bit more than that. I have an appointment next week to get the results and discuss next steps with the doctor. I’m sure it’ll just require a shot of cortisone or some such minor thing. Then I will be good to get on with life and finish getting us settled in to our new home. All I know is this shoulder is interfering with my goals to get some quilting finished!
I laid out the quilt yesterday for my newest great grandchild. After checking the layout, I decided I need to make a few more blocks to cut up for spacers in between the baby animal blocks. I will try to get to them this afternoon. The borders are ready to go on but I think this quilt needs to be a bit bigger!
First, though, I need to work on the Fundraiser that DH’s daughter has set up for his required treatment.
My heart is so full of gratitude for the help we are receiving to get this life altering treatment.
Then I will try to do some sewing on this very special quilt. Apparently labour has be under and this sweet baby is on the way! Nana needs to get the quilt finished so all I have to do is the label.
Thank you for checking in. I hope your week is going well and you are doing some fabric fondling or any other activity that brings you joy! 😄 Carol
