Week 2 day 2

I am finding the sling very uncomfortable, especially at night but I am persevering, although I feel like screaming.
We have found a way to wear clothes. The straps of my spaghetti strap tops cut enable my tops to slide up under the sling straps and then tied on my shoulders.  And a tee shirt cut up the right side allows the sling to poke through!

The strap that goes under my left arm rides up and cuts me, very, very unpleasant. This op had better work because I can't do this again! Looks very neat on this model but not like this on me!

I am still praying Chris. You CAN do this Chris!

I went through this apparatus with my broken arm. Hurt worse without the sling than with, so preserver. I could sleep at night on my side with the sling balanced on my other side and hip.
Keep on keeping on. You can do it.

Oh gee...that does look uncomfortable! It’s amazing how much we can block out while we are awake, then the minute the lights go out and you try to get relaxed - “boom!” the pain is there, worse than ever. I’m praying for you, Chris!

I'm so sorry this is such a painful trial for you, Chris! Praying it gets easier for you and the result is worth all you've been through.
