Surgery survived

Thursday I finally got my shoulder cleaned up. The doctor removed bone spurs and floating cartilage, and made space in the joint. She said there is  small tear, but without the bone spur rubbing on it, it should heal on its own. Here’s hoping!

I spent 2 days at my mom’s, being taken care of. Not something I’m very good at. She did a great job of keeping me medicated, hydrated, fed & cared for.  She finally decided I would be okay at home alone, but only because the eldest and his wife are coming by to feed every day this week.

The pain level is already very tolerable. I am staying ahead with the meds. I start physical therapy tomorrow, so we’ll see what the therapist says. I couldn’t stand the bandage anymore, so that is off. No pics, it’s not very pretty (but better than expected)
