But after my good news, I didn't sleep all that well that night, neither did DH, we were reading in bed at 2:00 am. Then my lovely man helped me get comfortable with my four pillows and one under my arm and I slept till gone 8..
I had a wonderful shower in the morning, first in 6 weeks, actually 6 1/2 weeks as I didn't have a shower in hospital! I still have a slight arrow mark on my arm after two showers; this morning I stood under that shower for a long, long time, bliss. I am excited but worried that my arm will still be awkward.. physio starts 27th Dec.. until then only passive exercise, so using my left hand to lift my right to bend at the elbow. He did say I could try to eat with it in a week's time if I could, but I 'll try to clean my teeth first using my left hand to lift my right. I can try to crochet, get back to that Sunshine and Showers CAL...And on the basis that I can use my arm I have bought a book with knitted little Christmas people!
But still the strict instructions, no extreme movements and no pulling, lifting, no arm behind my back, or using my arm to get up from a seat..but I feel ok and not too much pain and I feel like flying!
