I haven’t been doing a lot of blogging lately. Mainly because I’ve been a little…umm…held up.
Which has made it difficult for me to do even the most routine tasks…
They performed a nerve block during my surgery, meaning, I couldn’t feel my left arm for about 36 hours afterward. You know that heavy feeling you get when your arm falls asleep? After having that for a day and a half, you become a much more appreciative person.
Since the feeling in my arm is back, the pain has set in. Between taking naps on the couch, and icing my shoulder with my Aircast (the blue tube hanging out of my shirt above), there has been little time for much else.
But that’s okay.
I am grateful for my caring family and boyfriend, and for my health. Because this whole experience has reminded me of the simple fact that, even though there’s been some pain, I still have both of my arms.
I am thankful.
