  •  Good luck w/ the surgery. (8+ / 0-)

    Had it done on both shoulders. First one was miserable...but the second one, done 5 years later, wasn't as bad at all. And it is so blessed wonderful after you heal and realize the pain is gone.

    Get ready for elastic waist pants and pull up bra's...if you're a female. :)  And bad hair for awhile.

    My spousal unit was a great help...but dang, he was not so great w/ the hair stuff. Bless his heart.

    •  I broke my right wrist about 15 years ago. (8+ / 0-)

      I could do most things by myself, fortunately it was summer so elastic shorts and Tevas were the daily norm.  Hair, though, was a big problem but Mr. Light insisted on doing a french braid for me every morning! He's really good at it. I was so grateful, because my hair is normally to my waist and curly, so it's quite lively!

        Whenever I've broken anything previously, it's been on my left side. Not so lucky this time! I suspect the hardest part will be sleeping, because I may be reduced to sleeping on my back... or sleeping on the reclining sofa. Not fun, but it might be the only way for me to get a decent night of sleep.

        As it stands now, I sleep for 3-4 hours, wake up because of the pain, get up and take OTC painkiller, stay up for a while until they start to take effect, then go back to sleep for 2-3 hours. Not ideal, but I can mostly function.

      I think I can do my very simple hair with the left hand... and Glenn will be more than happy to assist with putting the bra on. (And taking it off! LOL) I have plenty of work pants and some casual pants & shorts that are elastic waist, so that will be fine.

      I will NOT be entering any fashion shows while still in a sling or cast!
