The last breakage, 4 1/2 years ago.....
This time there is no cast. I just have to wear a sling to keep the arm relatively immobile. And I had my 4 week visit with the orthopedist on Thursday. I already know I am moving it more than they are recommending, but apparently it is healing on schedule. He asked me to do the little circles with my arm, and then freaked out because the circles were too big, haha. I can type without having to stand up now, which is nice. I do have to wear the sling for two more weeks though. I really hate that thing. In a bit over a week I will have my first physical therapy appointment, and I'm asking them to let me know when I can expect to lift my arm high enough to dry my own hair. Romeo is doing a terrific job, but I really want to do it myself.
Last week was a real drag at work, my co-worker was out for nearly the entire week with a terrible cold. And my other two co-workers hardly offered to help me with the load of work that normally two of us do. I finally mentioned I might go crazy if she was out on Thursday, and they finally helped out more then. Honestly, must one ask for help? Can't they just use their own common sense to realize I can't do the job of two people without a bit of stress? It just bugs me. I guess most people are in their own little world, and rarely peek out the windows to see what's going on.
Maybe we should all look around a bit.
