I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
I tried to give in and rest my arm all weekend; it seems to be a little less painful ….
But, only if I do absolutely nothing with it.
Still – it’s an improvement, and even small improvements are good things.
I did make one trip out to a couple stores on Sunday.
There were a few gifts I wanted to pick up.
I hate shopping, but there are some items I don’t like to purchase online.
I took a deep breath and jumped right into the total chaos of Orange County December Weekend Shopping.
I managed to get in and out of two entire stores as fast as possible and not use my arm at all.
I’m meeting with my doc this morning.
I then plan to *not think about my arm* for the remainder of the week.
I know that won’t be entirely possible since it’s still attached to my body and sends pain signals to my brain on a regular basis.
But, I have a lot to do this week so I will do my best to do it all of those things left handed.
I’ll use every ounce of mental energy I can muster to block out the very existence of my right arm.
I’d like to get another “Favorite Things” post up for you this week, but no promises.
I’m taking things one day at a time right now.
I’m REALLY looking forward to an upcoming trip to L.A.
I have so many things I want to do in the L.A. area, and yet it will only be a quick visit.
How much can I cram into a very short time?
By the way, I thought you’d enjoy knowing Fred continues to be my loving and faithful companion.
I think he can sense when I’m in a lot of pain.
He’s been so loving and sweet and GENTLE with me.
Fred the wonder dog!
I might be the luckiest person in the world to have Fred by my side?!
