While great achievements are out of reach, I have to enjoy small ones, like being able to put on socks, or taking shower on my own. Last night I removed extra pillows and had almost normal sleep. In less than a week I'll take the sling off - two weeks ago it was a necessity, but now it's becoming more and more of a nuisance - especially the way it pulls against my neck, giving me serious backache. Yet, I can already type with both hands freely and do minor tasks in the kitchen. Healing is a slow process, but I try to ignore the slow and cncentrate on the process. Shoulder mobility exercises and passive stretches every day twice a day - that's all I have for now. Small progress there, and, I hope, a precursor of greater one.
