some other answers: no, i don't do night-time music, the rest of the house vetoed it. no i can't do much shoulder movement at all for about 6 weeks. i do take the sling off a few times a day to let my arm hang down and then flex it up along my front, to keep the elbow loose. yes, bunny snuggles help a lot - as does the help and support from bl .. it is quite a change for her ... there are many many of my usual chores i can no longer do and so she is learning them. i also can't drive for those 6 weeks .. or tuck in a shirt. no i haven't started the secret oriental treatments but plan to this weekend. right now it is hard to focus or concentrate on any one thing very long.
now, i hurt, so good night. thanks again for the kind words, helps, and patience!
