My son-in-law had his ankle surgery by September 21, 2009, I shared in FB, “He is, now, racing me to see who recovers their over four hours of surgery on various limbs; he had an ankle-foot reconstruction. We want to see who comes back kicking or punching, first. LOL!!! Jenny call dad if you need extra support for him.” Caretaking is hard- just ask my husband.
“What a busy time! When it rains, it pours. When He reigns, it pours!” I was referring to two incapacitate family members recovering from surgery.
Highlights of my recovery continued in Facebook, “My physical therapist raised my weights. I can, now, bench press three pounds. I still cannot raise my arm above my shoulder without it being shoulder compensating or shoulder up not arm up. LOL!” I laugh when I am nervous. I laugh when I am happy. I laugh to overcome pain. This time it was wondering when I’d move that arm higher.
“We worked on shoulder down exercises, today! She had me backed up against the wall! Only- it was for my own good. LOL!!! Meanwhile, son-in-law #2 and I keep joking about who will be healed and through physical therapy, first.” We already know he is number two; his surgery came weeks after mine and he married my daughter well after our first one wed. But, he is younger than me so may become number one by healing faster and better!
