Still Ow!

Pain level is hanging is pretty status quo. I was hoping by now for a little relief. When my Tylenol wears off, I definitely feel it. So I'm ramping up on pain meds.

I did help with practice this morning and it felt good to use my arm. Not too much though - just underhand throws and gentle grounders. What hurts right now is the incredible pulling from the dried skin. I'm gonna have Bill and Dad do some basic burn treatment on it today and see if we can't loosen things up a little.

The healing patches look great with healthy pink skin showing through. That's a relief. Dumb, but true - I am worried it won't ever heal and I'll always look like I got in a fight with a bottle of muriatic acid.

Gotta run cause we've got family hooking up over at Mom's house. Mom is tired but OK. The cat is being an overly attentive caregiver and won't let her sleep too much. Isn't it funny how our animals gravitate to us when we aren't feeling well? Marble thinks she's Mom's nurse. The only problem is she likes to sit on her patients :)

Have a good weekend!

With all that pain and you are still out there helping with practice. I don't know how you do it.

Thank you for all your wonderful advice that you've sent my way. Appreciated more than you can ever imagine!

You're very welcome, doll :)

No one knows better than someone who's been there. Even if you don't use the advice, it's stored in your brain so that you might think it's you're very own idea when you're feeling like sh*t :)
