the trip

phew. busy last week leading up to us heading over to Adelaide for my shoulder op. Drove over on Monday, shoulder op Tuesday arvo, left Adelaide and stayed with my Grandmother Wednesday night and back home by mid arvo today.

The shoulder op was only minor day surgery. To put it fairly basically, I have a bursar in both shoulders, but the one in my left shoulder had calcified. So it needed to be scrapped out. No big deal really, but I really wasn't sure of the recovery time. As it turned out, I had the sling on that evening when I came out of SportsMed, slept in it and had it off the next day. I can lift my arm up to 90 degrees already, which accordingly to the paperwork I should be able to achieve after 2 weeks, not 2 days. Lol. Over achiever.

Anyway, it feels pretty good, I can do up my own bras at the back, (phew thank goodness for that) I can do up the button on my jeans, (really dont like trackie daks) and do most things on my own. Just a little bit slower is all.

Off to the hair dressers tomorrow to get my hair washed, and I'm contemplating a new do, whether I get it all cut off, or do something with curl, I'm just not sure. We'll see.....wont happen tomorrow tho.... need to book in a much bigger time slot lol.

So all in all, I am feeling really really good, and more than a bit surprised in myself. Oh and Kym's been wonderful too.

ewww at your shoulder being scraped out.
I must admit to having a bit of a laugh at the comment..you spelt it scrapped out....girl I would not be surprised at all if it was 'scrapped' out!!
Seriously...good to see you are on the mend...

Yeah, I'm sure it was scrapped out - I think they used a Tim Holtz distresser or something. :)

Good to hear you're on the mend already. Don't go pushing it though!
