Beta Testing

I'm free, finally free....of any bandages, gloves, compression sleeves. Well, don't get too excited. I'm beta testing why my shoulder and underarm area is so sore and why my upper arm has gotten bigger. OK, I know I need to knock off the bread, but since only my upper arm is bigger, I have to run with "swollen" rather than weight gain!
I know this isn't going to be a long term deal, as my hand is swelling enough for me to notice it as soon as I wake up. But I'm persevering, and LOVING the feeling of freedom that this brings. My arm is as "naked as a jaybird". Hmm where did that expression come from? Wouldn't all birds be naked? It's just something my mom would have said.
The down side of all this is that I may end up back at the wrap, and that will not go over well with me, but I will do it. This month is going to busy with moving and unpacking, I'm hoping all this will help build up more strength in this arm. I know, that's why they have gyms, and weights. Ya, ya, not my deal.
Until next time


  1. Thinking of you this morning! I hope they are able to find the cause of all the swelling soon and come up with an effective treatment plan.

  2. Dang, so no buring on the wraps and sleeves yet! I hope everything is going well with your new place, once you're settled and feeling up to it maybe we can come over to see it!
    Alright two more days until the weekend (not like I'm counting or anything), we can do it!

    Love ya!
