Just a quick post to let everyone know that I am doing fairly well. Although I am not pain-free, my pain is significantly reduced from last week. The strength in my arm on the affected side is gradually returning; at one point last week, I was not able to use my arm at all. Scary!!
As long as I do nothing at all, I feel myself getting steadily better. On occasion, this has been difficult to achieve as I've had all the kids with me for most of this time. Friends, neighbours and my parents have all pitched in to help as driving is the one thing which really aggravates my condition. Living in a rural area, this is sometimes impossible to avoid.
I've had the odd set-back in my recovery, but mainly I'm progressing forward. I'm just being impatient with the slowness of the healing; a symptom of being middle-aged, I guess!
I would like to thank everyone again for all their best wishes. It means a lot to me!
