It seems the dread has become reality

I have been fighting and hoping that surgery on rotator cuff would not happen.  Looks like it will anyway!  Nearly a year since the incident and the left arm has gotten worse.  Constant pain, decreased movement, the list goes on..........

So, I will be in a cast/sling for at least 3 to 6 weeks ...won't really know till the surgery.  I put it off till right before holidays in December.

My dawling, well, he thinks he will be helping etc etc...but the reality, not so much.  My sweet son #3 he will be my "nurse"!  We are already developing a plan of action.  It is the clothing situation...will not be able to move the arm so am thinking of getting a big garbage bag, cutting a hole for the head and the right arm...what do you think?  They come in all forms of colors...I could get Holiday saran wrap and put on my feet...festive...No?   I have time I could sew a garbage bag....BLAH!

ohdear...well, hopefully, this will fix you up. You've got a bit of time for preparations before surgery. Hang in there, Lindy!
