"In the end it will all be worth it" that's what my husband keeps saying, and I know he's right. In the grand scheme of things it isn't that big of a deal, and it isn't life threatening. I'm aware of just how blessed I am as I pray every morning for sick friends. I guess I just want to voice my frustration as life around me keeps going forward, and I sit here on this couch.
I had surgery last Wednesday to repair my right shoulder. It was a little unexpected, since every other doctor that I saw for the last nine months said to deal with it. This last doctor I saw did not agree with the other doctors diagnosis, and in fact said it was a very easy fix. Two days later he fixed it. What a blessing!
My frustration right now is my being idle, which can't be helped. I'd actually be able to do more if I weren't allergic to everything under the sun. Apparently I've developed an allergy to latex, so I've been battling horrible blistering hives all over my arm since the surgery. The sling seems to make them worse. Unfortunately I need the sling to accomplish most tasks, but since I can't seem to shake the hives that go along with it I'm forced to sit on the couch. I know it's not really a big deal, and I am so grateful that my shoulder was fixable, but these hives truly are agonizing.
Thanks for listening. I'll have a card to show tomorrow that I actually made before the surgery, so stop back tomorrow. Have a blessed and productive day.
