I am going into my third week of recovery from my shoulder surgery and feeling so much better than I ever expected. I made it through work yesterday - not without aching and fatigue - but I made it! I have also started physical therapy. Yesterday was my second session. The first session I had, my Dr. had advised me to take a pain pill before I went so I did. By the time I left, the drugs had kicked in and I was a drugged mess. This time I decided to just take 800 mg of Ibuprofen. I still very much enjoyed having that shoulder stretched and manipulated but I did leave in pain. I guess I'm going to have to find a happy medium with the meds. It's amazing to me how an hours worth of moving your shoulder around in PT can make you soooo exhausted.
After PT, hubby and I went to eat at a local "dive" in our town and after that went home to relax. Before I knew it I was sacked out in my recliner snoozing for the night. I guess I fell asleep at 7:30 and woke up at 10:45 in time to crawl into bed. I slept all night and woke up with a lot less stiffness this morning in the shoulder. AMAZING!! I'm far from where I need to be but far from where I was. Doesn't that ring true in our spiritual lives as well? Far from where I need to be but far from where I was!! Hallelujah! Thank the good Lord above that He is daily watching over us and taking us (His children) where we need to be. What a great God we serve. I do have to give him all the glory for the easy recovery I have had. I am truly blessed!
