THE INJURED

I'm feeling pretty darn guilty.

Lacy came out and did lots of heavy lifting the other day... when she already had a sore shoulder (I didn't know at the time) ... and well... she lifted Stew's incredibly heavy drawers with Griffin, and hurt her shoulder even more.

Last night she ended up in Hospital as it was so very painful, and going numb, pins and needles and so on.

Kelly took her to hospital, and they were there for the majority of the evening, getting X-rays and so on.

Seems she's had a rotator cuff injury for a month or so, and the other day's activities just kicked it into another level of pain.

So now she's in a sling and has to go back in a month to see if the swelling has gone down, so hopefully then they can see more of what's going on in her shoulder.  *sigh*


ABOVE: This x-ray shows bone rubbing on bone. OUCH.


ABOVE:  I'm a bit evil, cos in this lot all I could think was:  "Which guy did she fancy the most?"
LOL.

I will ring her later on today and get an update on how she's feeling.  But for now... I better get up and at 'em.

ONWARD...

And...


ABOVE:  Kelly reckons she fancied THIS ONE the most!  lol

Gotta go... work calls.

So two jobs today.  One was a private house clean... which was a doodle.  Love this home, the dog is gorgeous and the cat is even half nice!  (I'm not a cat sorta person)

The dog is a small type of wippet-y thing, she's adorable. I get lots of loves from her.

After finishing that home, I came home and did some cleaning here.  Then I grabbed some lunch... watched Home and Away etc and then... Off to work at the Rest Home.


It was a laundry shift today, so not a long shift.  I am really loving the rest home work... it's hard work being on me feet all the time but I really enjoy the company.  The other people who work there have really accepted me as 'one of them' now, so it's neat.  Lots of laughs.

And the oldies?  I love them.  And apart from a couple of really GRUMPY old men, most of them seem to enjoy talking to me, giving me a hard time in jest!  And I love talking to them, even if it's only for a few minutes while I'm in their room. 

Both items I put on the 24 hr, $1 auction got bought and taken away today.  Yaaa, that's less stuff cluttering up me house.

Now.. I'm listening to music on my computer, earphones on, and watching TV half heartedly.  Coronation Street is on tonight, but I'm giving it a miss cos I need to get to bed at a decent time.  I'm trying to make sure I don't get overtired this week.

  1. Oh no, I feel her pain. I've had surgery on both shoulders because of rotator cuff issues. Maybe they'll offer her an x-ray guided cortisone shot, it might help.

  3. Worst part about rotator cuff injuries is that they take months to heal. Hopefully they'll get on top of the pain and she can manage ok.

  5. Feel the pain Lacy and its always the way. (dont feel bad Chris) Same as here , have the same injury (smiles) and they said 4 to 6 months cos I am in a diff Higher age bracket to Lacy lol and cos its my right arm and I am right handed its only when The pain hits on movement I remember it

    gr8 idea the sling thats what my DH reckons I shouldve got at the time but I waited over 3 weeks to go to Doc in case it went away on its own.
