Rehab News

The long awaited appointment with Dr. Milne.  Sandi picked me up and we headed  out.  When we got there, of course we had to wait.  I’m glad that I have finally found a book that I could really get into.  Dr. Milne had the answer that I was waiting for,  “You can get rid of that sling.”  Yea!  It has been a bit uncomfortable now that the temperatures are getting warmer, so I liked that answer.  Now I go back to the normal routine, but adding active exercises and using my right arm normally with care.  I need to strengthen it along with the left arm.

He also gave me a prescription for  out  patient therapy.  On the way home we stopped to schedule those visits.  He also cleared me for driving, but not for driving “My Spot II”.  It doesn’t do me to much good, as I don’t have a “toad”, so now I have to be on the look out for an inexpensive car to be towed all four down.  It would only be for getting around to the store and appointments.  It would also Sandi out so that she wouldn’t have to take me places.  Maybe then I can start to looking for a part time job, if I can be cleared to do that.

In the mean time I hope that you all are having a great week staying cool, dry and safe.

Thanks for visiting

  1. That's great news. Just don't over do it now. I love it when the pups sleep on their backs. They are so funny.
