I am only 2 1/2 weeks post-surgery on my shoulder. I have had a few good days and some bad days. I go to therapy three days a week and will do so for three months. Patience is not one of my virtues. On good days, I think I should be improving more and I push myself. The therapist told me, with Bogey standing right there, that I must not do that.
Bogey has given me a few paddle pops, but with pain meds coursing through my body, it isn't the same by a long shot. Every time I do something that I shouldn't do, Bogey says he will paddle me for that. I can't even use my right hand to type because it hurts some muscle in my arm. I think that when this is finally over, Bogey will decide that he owes me many many paddle pops. Since that will be the case, I better save one pain pill for that paddle day.
Before that day, I think I should have a "Celebration Day", where I get the paddling just tailored to my wants. Don't y'all agree??
