Current status

susandennis wondered how I was and I realize that although I have been posting sporadicly to FaceBook, I haven't posted here.

I remain in rehab; the target release date is Friday, the 25th. I don't know how accurate that is, and will probably find out more on Tuesday.

I continue to make progress slowly but surely.  I use a walker to get around. I have mild to occasionally severe pain in my middle back, right shoulder, and right forearm/elbow. Position, pain medication, heat or ice help. Over time the situation improves.

We just ordered a shower seat, a hand held shower hose/nozzle, a bar to mount on the tub edge, and a suction bar for the wall and 3 sets of handles to mount on the toilet (one for one of the bathrooms in Cambridge). These are all to make sure I can navigate the use of the bathroom safely. Hopefully I won't need them for long.
