Progress Update – February 5, 2018

I finished the Bright Yellow scarf earlier today. The picture is below:

the scarf looks much paler than what it actually is. The yellow is so bright you just might almost want to squint.

After finishing that scarf, I started on the next scarf. The color of the next one is Charcoal.

As my shoulders are worsening by the day, I am finding it harder and harder to do the crochet. To compound matters even further, this morning I went off of a curb, that was around 6 inches tall, in my wheel chair. The sidewalk was slick and my wheels slid off before I could even think. My whole right side hit the parking lot at the gas station, and my chair ended up on my back. There is a lump on my elbow, my knee got skinned up some, and I’m just sore all over from the jarring when I fell and hit the ground. It’s probably going to take a couple of days for the soreness to go away. That being the case, it may take me a few days longer to make the Charcoal grey scarf. But I will go as fast as the soreness will allow.

Tomorrow I see the orthopedic surgeon and I will find out the results of the x-rays. He is also supposed to drain the cyst that’s on my right shoulder if the x-rays don’t show it to be suspicious or malignant. I don’t know if they can drain it by simply inserting a hollow needle in it or if the will ave to lance it to do it. One thing is for sure, I will find out tomorrow, and by this time tomorrow whatever they are going to do to it will have been done and I can at least start getting better from that much of what’s wrong with my right shoulder. Hopefully I will also be given a date when they are going to do the first surgery if Medicare has approved it. I surely do hope that Medicare has approved it. I want the surgeries to be over so that I can get through the recuperation from the surgery and finished with the physical and occupational therapy and get back to the crocheting and living my life.

As always, I will keep you informed to the best of my ability about all of it, but especially my progress on the scarves.

Thank you for your thoughts and continued prayers.
