It is a slow process but Melissa is recovering from her surgery. Did not do too well today, I think her allergies are messing with her today! Hopefully she will get some sleep tonight and feel better tommorrow. Her shoulder gives her pain everyday though that is the only bad thing. They re-attached 3 tendons. One for bicep and 2 for the shoulder. Plus re-attaached shoulder muscle that had been torn for over 30 years ago. Hope everyone else is doing well.

New update: Wife was busy today she vacuumed the living room and stairs, loaded and unloaded dishwasher, swept the dining room and kitchen, cleaned kitchen, made supper. Took many pain pills because of being active today. Yesterday she only took some ibuprofen, but she did not do very much. She should sleep good tonight though.

Latest update on Melissa. Went to the doctor this past Friday and the doctor took another x-ray of her shoulder. They were worried that the anchor holding her muscle to the bone was going to come loose. The x-ray showed all was well that the anchor was staying in place. The doctor wanted to start physical therapy right away, but Melissa is still tender to the touch. So they decided another 2 weeks for the next check-up and will see about physical therapy then. So another 2 weeks and hopefully she will be on the road to recovery. Please keep her in your prayers that the anchor and muscle will heal so that she can have a normal shoulder again!!

Thanks,


Rickey

Awww,
thanks to my husband, and all who have sent good wishes.
shoulder is getting better daily, and I'm getting braver with using it within the boundries of the sling--still babying it though to give that old muscle a chance to tack down. the bones aren't showing signs of building up around the anchors much, so I'm taking lots of calcium and vit. D, too. Guess I should have been all along, doc says I have soft bones. that explains why i haven't broken more, they just dent I guess. Not for lack of trying. I'm just an "old softie" Wink
Good to hear that there are some who have had shoulder surgery and gone back to riding. The doctor is agin' it, of course (can't very well say "sure, go tear through the woods and try not to fall off or flip, you won't get hurt!", can he?). I haven't had normal use of my left shoulder since I was 15 (wrecked on a dirt bike), and it still will never be normal, but I'm hoping to have it stable enough to put off any more surgery for a verrrry long time-- it's a sucky way to burn all of your vacation time, and next time I won't get paid to recover. We were going to go to Texas and ride all over this summer. But I'll be riding the sissy trails for a while, or babysitting at the campsite for ya'll while you ride. I don't mind, really. I like kids and dogs.
Be safe out there, and watch out for my boys!
Smiles,
Mel

Melissa got seen by her doctor yesterday. Her re-attached muscle has stayed put, Very Happy hurray for us! She is now allowed to drive her car around without her sling. So if you are coming to Deepwater look for a purple convertible Pt Cruiser, she is on the loose, the one armed bandit. pirat
