I have been missing from here for a little bit. This frozen shoulder has been extremely problematic. Driving, wiping one's bottom and getting dressed were only some of the non fun. I could only type a word or two before I would have to get up and swing my arm around like a side of beef. And then as soon as I would stop moving it.....it would freeze again.
I have been to see my 20 something year friend and chiropractor 4 times in the past 3 weeks. Some relief each time but by the next morning.....ouch and the ice pack. My friend is in the process of selling his practice and he and his wife will be taking off to the wilds of Washington state. (that's a joke of course). That is where his wife would like to call home again and Steve is such a good heart and wants to make his lady happy.
I on the other hand have been feeling sad because, who else is going to listen to my aches and complaints and not think I'm just an olde biddy with a nagging problem (literally and figuratively)? Well luckily yesterday I found that the young man who is buying into the practice is also a kind, hands on healer.
He still has a way to go to knowing all of my quirks but he did a bang up job of getting my wing back to a tolerable level of discomfort. I got ultrasound and acupuncture. Did this body good. At least I can move my fingers on the keyboard just in time to type my blog for Grow Your Blog tomorrow.
Whew, that was close because believe it or not, as much as I love my family, they would never have put up with all the writes and rewrites I do when writing a blog....just for you. Until today, I never knew what a mess I am when it comes to getting the story just right.....and then I find a typo or worse, I think of something to add.
So I'm off to rest the arm and then walk on my treadmill. That's something else that is difficult to accomplish when you can't swing your arm naturally.....

Thank you for tuning in.
