Subject: RE: BS: My broken arm is fixed!
Yee hah! on the bra!

When I was in physical therapy, I figured part of the pool therapy definitely included getting out of swimming gear and into real clothes (including that damned bra!) -- that was just (if not more) as physically demanding as what was required in the pool.

I couldn't drive for 3 months. And I think it was almost 5 months before I could pass a rubber ball behind my back (and scratch my right shoulder!!!).

Folding sheets from the dryer is still uncomfortable most of the time.

And, of course, I couldn't push myself out of the bath tub until just shy of two years. That was my personal standard for "healed".

Keep up the good work! Keep pushing it! It WILL all come back -- all it takes is work, work, work.

It's interesting, every time I meet someone who has recovered from a broken upper arm, the first thing we do is raise our arm straight over our heads to show how far we've come.
