I have very high-tech equipment to use following the shoulder surgery. Trusty Physiotherapist suggested, some time back, that I rig a pulley system to help me regain some range. I asked Walter and Child no 2 if they had any thoughts about how to do this. They consulted. They stared into the distance. They announced it was do-able and then promptly forgot. Two weeks later, tired of waiting, I rigged this myself
I stand there, like the statue of liberty, holding my gown closed for modesty's sake with my left arm almost pointing at the ceiling muttering "Give me your tired, your poor" and swearing like a trooper.
As for the surgery - the less said, the better. Suffice to say that the operating theatre looked nothing like the set of Grey's Anatomy, there was no McDreamy and the morphine drip became my best friend until I figured out that was what was causing the burning in my wrist.
There were flowers, though, from family, friends and work
And it is slowly getting better. The night pain has (mostly) gone so I can sleep for more than an hour at a time, and I'm really trying to do the hourly exercises.
I'm still pissed that there was no McDreamy though.
