4 Weeks

Well, it has officially been 4 weeks since my surgery. It seems to be healing well. I am still having some difficulty sleeping, but that is to be expected. It is so hard to find a comfortable position. It is amazing how many muscles get pulled if the shoulder isn't supported just right ~ especially in the neck and upper arm. It can get very uncomfortable!!!

All of the surgical tape fell off today and the scar looks good. It is a good 3" long, but has healed very nicely. I made a healing ointment/salve today. I infused some olive oil with calendula (marigold) petals on Monday. I used that, Shea butter, beeswax, sweet almond oil and sunflower oil in the ointment. I also added some extra Vitamin E oil even though sunflower oil naturally contains Vitamin E. I put in some tea tree oil and camphor oil for their healing properties.

I will be starting Physical Therapy in a couple weeks. I am half looking forward to it, but half not. I am sure it is going to hurt when they start moving my arm out, up and back. All for the best though so I will tough it out. LOL

Now to get some soap made since we are completely out. I can't do everything involved with making the soap because of the stirring involved, but I am sure I can find helpers.

Well, that's all for now.
