It's Tam's follow-up appointment with the orthopedic specialist today. Hopes are high but your positive thoughts would be appreciated. Has her collarbone started to knit up? She'll know a little bit after noon today. She'll likely still be stuck wearing a sling for the next few weeks either way, but progress is progress.
My next ortho appointment is still a couple of weeks away and it's anyone's guess what they'll say. Still using a cane most of the time; at this point, I can't even fake it well enough to visit a big-box store without limping and needing a cart to hang on to. I can just about get through our neighborhood grocery store without limping much, if I don't dawdle. Ice packs every night and during that day when possible, but my darned knee still feels hotter to the touch than the rest of me.
