Post Op

Hey, y'all. I've been absent from the paper crafting world for 17 weeks now. Due to a motor vehicle crash I had a torn rotator cuff and a torn labrum. Throw in a hundred bone spurs, too.  Apparently I now have what's called "Frozen Shoulder". Even though I have had much physical therapy and other procedures I don't seem to be making any progress. The pain is chronic, my range of motion is terrible and I've lost the muscle in the one arm. I've done a bit of reading on Frozen Shoulder and it could take a few years for the shoulder to thaw if it thaws. I'm trying to stay positive but after this long that positivity starts sliding. 

I so miss creating cards. I haven't visited anyone's blog, not even my own sweet House Mouse team mates. I'm going to start making the rounds again. I may end up copying and pasting comments so bear with me. Too much typing equals more pain. 

I do covet your prayers and would greatly appreciate them. I'm sure more than a few of you have had or still have your own nightmare stories of health problems. Feel free to send me your story as I will commiserate with you. 

I'll be visiting y'all soon. Hugs to all.  Gentle, one sided, don't hug me I'll hug you, hugs.
