Sorry to not have checked in earlier.  Finally got my sling off today.  I'm having to type left-handed.   not supposed to do any active motion with my right shoulder.  It is difficult.  I won't be surprised if it takes another  10 weeks to fully recuperate.  I have started PT.  Pain is minimal.  i will just be one-armed for a while.  Trying to be patient!

Thanks for checking in to let us know how well you are doing.  I'm sorry you have to keep you right wing quiet for awhile yet.  I can imagine how challenging that is.  Just make sure your handsome nurse is keeping track of things or you...  if he is still recovering well.  He seems mad and frustrated enough on FB to forget any recovery pain he might still have.  Take care you two!

I'm so excited.  I can drive now.  I drove all over my neighborhood just to make sure I would feel confident driving in traffic.  I don't think I have driven my car since January.  Other people had to drive me around because of the pain of sciatica and my back.  I'm still using my walker because of my bad left knee.  It is painful to put all my weight on that leg so it has interfered with my PT sessions.  I have to wait 2 more weeks before I can get a steroid shot in that knee.  The doctor said I have to wait a full 3 months after my back surgery to get a steroid shot.  So in two weeks you better watch out.

Yay!  Great progress!  I don't know what I would do if I couldn't drive myself to where I need to go.  Driving gives you such freedom and independence.  Congratulations.
