I wrote this blog on Wednesday morning, but was unable to post it until Friday.
Well, Helen, a Compassionate Gathering founding member drove me to the Naturopathic clinic. They say there are no broken bones, but that I still have inflammation in my right elbow. They are unsure why I can’t flex my right arm more than a few inches but hope that flexion will come back as the inflammation recedes. They prescribed a number of anti-inflammatory treatments and some visits to a chiropracter. I’ve driven my car around the block but it is clear to me that I should not attempt freeway driving or driving in traffic. However, I am hoping to take a disabled survivor to the Stations of the Cross tonight. Hopefully I can make it. I’m feeling like I could really identify with the physical pain and suffering of Jesus right now.
The silver lining of all this -- I lost 4 1/2 pounds without trying because it is so much harder to cook and eat right now.
