It’s been several days since I last blogged so I thought I’d give you an update.
A day over six weeks since the fall and I am in that zone they initially talked about. The doctors offered up a healing time of six to eight weeks. That was the initial evaluation. Two weeks ago an orthopedist told me that realistically, I am looking at ten to twelve weeks from the time of the fall. That would be end of September.
To quote Colonel George Taylor (Planet of the Apes): “… damn you all to hell!”
I was hoping to be back on Pearl and writing full time by now, but it’s just not happening. I certainly don’t have the range of motion or strength in the arm to get back on the bike and any extended typing starts giving me a slow burn in the rotator. Worst case I might have some rotator damage that will require surgery, but they won’t even begin to diagnose that until the hematoma heals.
So today, I am off for another visit to the Orthopedist. I hope they move that time-frame again. I’d like to be back on Pearl by the end of August.
I’m afraid I am not a very patient patient.
