This is where I have spent the last few days. On the sofa with a tray table nearby. I feel like such an invalid!
When we were moving to North Carolina we obviously had to get rid of stuff. Combining two households isn't easy and each of us had some difficulty letting go of some things. Jeff had a set of wood tray tables that I said to give away. He wanted to keep them. I never really had a use for tray tables, I think of them as "old school". Well let me tell you, this week I am loving these tray tables! I barely got off the sofa yesterday and my tray table kept everything I needed within reach of my "good arm".
I had a rough friday night. My shoulder hurt so bad that I was in tears most of the evening, the pain was constant. I couldn't sleep in bed, couldn't get comfortable... I paced around the house, holding my left arm, for what felt like forever. I finally got some relief after doubling up on naproxen. I fell asleep around 3am, sitting up on the sofa. In the morning the constant pain was gone, it only hurt when I moved my arm and it didn't bring tears to my eyes to do it. I still can't lift my arm on it's own, my right arm has to help it move. This morning I managed to make myself bacon, eggs, and grits... cracking an egg with my right hand proved a challenge! The yoke broke but it still tasted good and I didn't have to ask Jeff to make it for me. The next challenge for the day is an attempt to put clothes on.
Wish me luck!
