OFF I WENT..

.. to the fracture clinic .. not really knowing what the next step was to be .. but hopeful it would be a positive one !!  PHEW ! I am pleased to report that the consultant is happy with my progress x

The back-slab is gone ... I have to say ...while I was glad to see it go .. I was nervous when they cut it off .. it has been my companion and protector for a while now!! lol x... I now have to .....GET THAT ARM STRAIGHT!! which is easier said than done . .. let me tell you ! When it has not moved for over 3 weeks that elbow does not want to comply!!!!! However I am doing my exercises and waiting to start THREE WEEKS of physiotherapy !! 

Getting into bed was fun! WHAT did I do with my arm before I had a back-slab? I could not remember !. I don't think I ever noticed!! NO back-slab to protect me if I rolled over onto it!! lol x I did sort my self out .. eventually ..but it was tricky there for a moment or two !! lol x

My friend (who is a physio.) took me out to dinner today ... and I told her if she said...STRAIGHTEN THAT ARM... one more time ... I was going to clock her with it!! However she is right.. and I need to get on with it xx lol x

She brought me some beautiful flowers..



.. she knows me well x

I have decided that before I start on the new shawl with the beautiful wool.. I will finish off the one I already have on the needles..


.. that way if my tension is affected then I can get it corrected BEFORE I start the new one x That's the plan for to-day anyway! lol x I need to build up the muscles in my arm again also x 

Hope you all have something to be positive about to-day x

Getting the range of motion back in your elbow is going to be work; but, you can do it. I did it by carrying a heavy suitcase--actually it was a baritone saxophone-- with that arm. . .course that was before physio was part of recovery. I think physio can come up with a better plan that has a faster outcome!

What good news Diane. I know you have great incentive to get going again. I forgot to tell you that I love the new shawl, thank you so much. It's beautifully knitted of course and I love the shape and pattern. It's tough to see James head off here again. You must see great changes in him each time he visits. Keep that elbow moving dear friend and we all look forward to seeing what you make this year xxx

Thrilling for you! And what a good plan to finish the old shawl before starting the new one. :) So glad to hear that your arm is healing.

Great that it’s healing well, don’t forget to “straighten that arm” 🙂 xxx

I am late catching up here, but I hope the arm straightneing is going ok for you..your friend gave you beautiful flowers. Good plan with the shawl. Is interesting how we do things without thinking and then suddenly you have to decide what to do...
