The shoulder progress continues ... sleeping is getting easier. I ditch the sling four times a day for some very mild elbow and shoulder moving .. that feels good ... usually about 1/2 hr. I am 23 days with the sling so far ... maybe 19 to go. Today I held Zoey for awhile. I was nervous because she likes to move around a bit. But it worked fine and I know she was happy to be back too - her teeth were purring away pretty good!
Oh .. had a late night meeting yesterday so no post. But Racer looked great there for two days. Yesterday morning when we got up, little Racer was very listless and did not want any food. After awhile, BL gave him the old stand by of a dose of Metacam and a bunch of fresh pineapple juice from a syringe. In about 5 hours, he popped up and began to eat and be active and is back to his usual perky self. Whew ... who knows.

So the idea is to be thinking about lemons that this grand year of implosion is handing you ... and the lemonade you have made!
Be sure to leave me a comment when you publish your story on your blog, and I'll keep track of them all. Later we'll have a random drawing from all the entrants for some great loot!
Some of the loot has been promised already, but if anybody wants to add to the pot, let me know so we can be sure the complete prize is announced!

What more can we say than THANKS! my oh my ....I had a two week Dr. visit and all is going just fine. I get to wear the sling 4 more weeks. ugh ... I can take it off some during the day for some simple elbow movements, but no shoulder movement at all. Sleeping in a sling is awful.

L and W are down next to Baxter and Zoey and it is quite amusing to watch Bax, usually a pretty laid-back bunny, hot-foot it down where Zoey might be cavorting a bit with "The Boyz!" Lets everybody know their place quite firmly!
Slowly feeling better. A long way to go. Doc visit on Wed. Hopefully I'll get to start some motion exercises .. very confining having this thing in a sling all the time except for a few short "dangles" each day. Sleeping is terrible .. on my back on a couch or recliner .. for several 1 hour stints in the night. I can understand how people get hooked on drugs and much admire those who don't. Tonight I try earphones and music and some of the secret ancient oriental healing :<)

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!

I can sleep about 1 1/2 hours at a time and sort of wander the night away! 10 rabbits, a refrigerator, a thermostat controlled propane heater, a huge herd of calving cows down the road, plenty of coyotes on a moonlit night, and a 100 plus car freight about 5 miles away making two runs a night do provide interesting sounds.
Lot's of fine care from BL ... bless her bunny-luvin' heart!
Couple more days will make a big difference .. thanks for all the cheer-ups! I've been reading blogs, but no writing yet .. still just one hand useful.....
