So I went to the ortho today for my follow up. I am cleared for pt for my shoulder. I have my first pt appt Monday. I go back to the doctor on 5/8 and am cleared to return to work on 5/12. I will have maybe 2 pt appts done by the so I am not sure I am going to be cleared for work. I was hoping to return on a Wed or Thursday just because working a full week is hard and can hurt.
I am babysitting the Princess tonite. My first time babysitting alone since the surgery. I know it will be ok because she is conscious of my arm
Princess – (pointing at right arm) Thats the arm that had surgery.
Me – yes
Princess – pointing at rt arm – that arm
me – yes
P – Pointing at left arm – this arm
me – no the other arm
now do that over and over for 5 minutes. Then do it again 10 minutes later
Once she is satisfied she is aware which arm had the surgery – she then goes on – I can touch your arm here (rubbing my wrist) yes you can
then she rubs my left wrist – can I touch your arm here – yes because the other arm had surgery
which starts the cycle over and over and over and over.
My nephew (LN) kept kissing my hand to make sure I was ok.
NE tried to avoid touching me completely because he didn’t want to hurt me. And when I hugged him he told me to be careful.
I like that they understand that I was hurting but even if my arm was hanging off – it wouldn’t have stopped me from holding them or anything (well except the ick factor)
so I have another full week off from work – whoo hoo. I am going to try for another week and a half after that if I can.
it’s so sad how much everyone hates working at HELL. I can name 15 people looking for jobs and 10 who are waiting to get fired It’s a shame because Hell use to be a great place to work. It was never called hell except for the Monday mornings when no one wants to go to work.
