All right – I just got through another day successfully. It’s amazing how much more effort everything takes. But I think I am making progress. I am now typing with two hands. That is, I skootch up very close to the edge of the desk and they keyboard and manage to do it. See? Better already.
This morning I thought I might take a shower and take the sling off. And then I changed my mind pretty quickly. It still hurts quite a bit when I move it. But, on the bright side, I manged to get under that arm in the bath this morning. As a result I think I smell a tiny bit less like a rip round of Cheddar.
I had no help with Abby today so had two good long walks while fielding a huge amount of work – I turned down a job. I had to.
I managed to slice bread today. Not well, but hey, I was not going for esthetics.
I did however cave about the apartment. I have put out an SOS for a cleaning person to come in. I can’t bear not being able to do a proper cleaning job. Of course, I doubt I do a “proper” job on my best days – but this could be a great excuse to get someone in to do a really thorough piece of work here – while letting me not dust and clean. What could possibly be wrong with that?
One more day of working – and then hiking. Yes – healing is beginning. And I believe I can start counting down the days to being able to sleep lying down again – 5 days! hurrah!
