Why are you reporting this puzzle?

... after the fact -- I had rotator cuff and other shoulder repair surgery this morning. All went well, praise God. I'll be back with photos when I can. They told me I might not be able to drive for up to four weeks.

Taken by my husband January 20, 2022!

Li I think it is really nice to put faces on names. Of course there are always the safety and privacy issues. I am not always out and around, but is good for people to see there is a person behind a name, and it makes it less about strangers. And thank you!

joyfulli

Thanks, Ed.

bowlakeboy

You're welcome, Li. Sleep well.

joyfulli

Yes, I have two pillows behind my head and upper back and one under my arm. Thanks, Ed.
I like your new avatar, Mila. It's nice to see you. I'll have to consider that, too!!

WhiskersNFeathers

Exactly what Ed said Li. When my hand was bad, I had to wedge a pillow behind my back. It really works.
Welcome back! I have a lot of catch-up to do.

bowlakeboy

Pillow up against your back, Li...

joyfulli

Thanks for the prayers and hugs, Sharon. I've already realized that I have to be careful. Last night in bed I caught myself rolling onto my right side!! That's a no-no at this point.

Sharon72

So happy to hear the good news. Please be careful and don't overdo it though. Sending continued prayers and gentle hugs your way.

joyfulli

I'm happy to be doing that, too, Tea. Thanks.
I really DO cherish the hugs and prayers, Dusty. That has sustained me.
It's a new lease on life, Ed, to be able to resume driving. That's been the hardest part of this whole thing so far. Thanks.

bowlakeboy

It's great that you can now drive! Keep up the good work!! :-)))) Ed

dustydog

Just popping in...glad that things are progressing.... also glad that you can drive some!
Take care! Hugs and prayers still coming from me. (And a lot of others! 😊
Dusty

Thanks for sharing your good news. Do continue to take care of yourself.
Sending a gentle hug, Patsy

Teagardener

Yeah, I’m happy you’re driving again . . and taking pictures !!

joyfulli

Thank you, Ianto. I'm learning my limits and trying to be careful. Thanks for caring.

Back to driving is wonderful. But please don't overdo anything. But we are glad that you are back..

joyfulli

Thank, dhi. I'm trying!!
Freedom, for sure, Juba. I feel emancipated!
Thanks for your hugs and prayers, Penny. I appreciate it.

mauismom

good to know you're mending well. hugs and prayers continue for total success.

Juba1010

Yay! Freedom! :-)

dhi

Such amazing progress, keep up the good work!

joyfulli

Wow! I didn't realize I'd missed so many comments. I remembering answering several of them, but I must have done something wrong so my responses were lost. Sorry.

I reached my 6-week milestone yesterday and was given permission to drive and to keep my shoulder stabilizer off, at least at home. I found out, though, that there are some movements that are very painful yet, so I have to be especially vigilant. I DO feel such freedom, though, in reaching this milestone. I will continue to have Physical Therapy for two more months, but the surgeon said that final healing can take up to a year! So I'm still taking things a step at a time. Thank you all for your good wishes, inquiries, love, and prayers. It means so much.

Blessings and love to Ianto, Mila, Parson, Sharon, Marilyn, Juba, Sylvia, Patti, Penny, Irene, Jillian, and Nikki. I especially liked the virtual hugs and real prayers!!

niccolino59

Joyfulli, I've only just seen this. I wish you all the very best for a speedy recovery & minimal pain.

Juba1010

💐💐💐💐💐

So much love.

JillianB

Just wanted to let you know Li, I think of you often and wonder how the recuperation is going. Trust you are doing all the right things and getting stronger every day. Virtual hugs and real prayers

WhiskersNFeathers

It has been a month... I certainly wasn't expecting this to be a fast process, curious to hear how are you feeling but forget I even mentioned it. Healing thoughts going your way!

Sharon72

Missing you. Feel better soon.

Jumble

I hope you are healing well Li, and not in pain. Sending love and hoping you're ok. Looking forward to having you back when you are feeling better. ♥

Same here.

Juba1010

I see she logged in today. Get better Li. 💐

mauismom

just wondering how you're doing. i hope you're much better. Penny

PLG1958

Hang in there, Li! Hope you're healing quickly!

lovesgulls

I just found your puzzle this morning, dear Li. So sorry! Glad to learn you are on the mend. Wishing you an ongoing speedy recovery. I'll be happy to have you back in here, too! Love and hugs...

WhiskersNFeathers

I know. (*_*)

Juba1010

Looks like she logged in on February 4th. Hope she’s healing well. It’s a lot living with one arm tied to your waist. (((Joyfulli))))

WhiskersNFeathers

Has anyone have an update on Li?

I hope that you are doing better.

canoekaw

Thinking about you, hope all is well and your recovery is speedy.

Sharon72

Somehow I missed seeing this. I have a brace and sling something like this from when I fell against old console tv set some years ago and shattered right humerus and then fell again in street right on that arm three months later. Had nerve damage and lost function, feeling of shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers for over a year but managed to work using left hand to type and write (somewhat legibly). God granted me a full recovery and gave me a wonderful physical therapist. (He also blessed me with neighbors who would open cans for me at dinnertime and a little Prius with pushbutton ignition so I didn't have to do gymnastics with a key) I am glad your surgery is over and praying you have a comfortable, quick, and full recovery. Hugs.

WhiskersNFeathers

I wish he had PW, I am doing my best. As for Li, she is more sensible than I am, she'll do okay. Sorry no banter here, my brain is unfit. (*‿*)

ParsonWayne

Did your doctor write out a prescription for hiatus, WNF? Don't take too many.

WhiskersNFeathers

Li, I went through the left hand use recently, I know is hard to do nothing but I messed up my left in the process. Dr said the left is not meant to do what the right does. Maybe yours is better trained than mine but just in case try to take it easy. Now I messed up my neck and shoulders and supposed to be on hiatus (*_*) is not easy. God's blessing!

it is great that Cory is helping. Just over do anything.

joyfulli

I'm not in pain yet, Parson, because the nerve block hasn't worn out yet. I actually do use both hands when I write on paper -- one to hold the paper and one to wield the pen or pencil!
Thank you, Dusty.
He's already doing a lot, Jackie. It's amazing what I can't do with only one hand. Hugs and love to you.
Thank you, GG. I'm glad it went well, too. The surgeon gave me some photos, and it was amazing how chewed-up that biceps tendon was. I appreciate your prayers.

GOSPELGRANDMA

I'm so glad the surgery went well, and that you are now recovering! Praying for you! ☺♥

Take care Li, and feel. better real soon. Let Cory take good care of you. Hugs and love.

valleystream

My healing thoughts are with you.

dustydog

So sorry, for what you are going through! Healing prayers coming to you.

ParsonWayne

It's where they require all students to be able to write with both hands, Li. Sorry you are in so much pain.

joyfulli

Beautiful comment, Marilyn. Thanks for your prayer and encouragement. Love and hugs to you, too.

mariolyn

Praise the Lord and pray He will ease any pain. Here's your chance to let go and let God. Hugs and love.

joyfulli

I'm not sure where Ambidex is, Parson. ..😎

ParsonWayne

Li, don't become an Ambidextrous; remain an American.

joyfulli

Thank you for praying, Tea. It's so good to have Sisters who pray for us here. Yes, God is so faithful and I'm grateful. Each one of my Jigidi friends is precious to me.

Teagardener

G’morning Li, God answered our prayers and now we pray for fast recovery! You can see on this page how much your friends love you and wish you well :)
-Tea

joyfulli

That would be nice, Ed. Yes, that is the hard part, so I will be as careful as I can. Thanks.

joyfulli

I have an alpaca poncho, too. I got it in Ecuador a long time. ago, Juba. Thanks for the reminder!
Thank you so much, Parson. I appreciate that more than I can say.
I'm so sorry to hear of your ordeals, Jerry. I will endeavor to do both. Thanks and hugs back.

bowlakeboy

Li, I'm glad to hear the surgery went well!! Now comes the hard part-- constant mindfulness to avoid hurting yourself. Perhaps you can develop your left hand's dexterity as you recover and become ambidextrous!! :)))))))

jerrys

@joyfulli Oh my! I've had five rotator repair surgeries (3 left, 2 right) and the last one undone due to a staph infection in the wound.

BE SURE TO FOLLOW YOUR PHYSICAL THERAPIST'S INSTRUCTIONS AND DO THE HOMEWORK!!! IT MAKESS ALL THE DIFERENCE IN THE RECOVERY!!!

Get well soon...hugs to you!

:-)))

ParsonWayne

Prayers for complete healing are coming your way, Li.

Juba1010

I loaned a friend my alpaca poncho after she had hers done. Easier to deal with than a coat. Take care. :-)

joyfulli

Bless you, mauismom.

mauismom

sending prayers for a successful recovery

joyfulli

I love your suggestions, Cathy. Thank you for your prayer support.
Thanks for your kind words, Hermitish.
Thanks for noticing my wrong date, robf. I can't imagine why I typed that!!

robf

Get well soon, J!

2018? Perhaps you meant to say 2022...

hermitish

Hoping for minimal discomfort and quick recovery. So many people enjoy your company.

cevas

Dear Li, I'm praying you will heal quickly and totally! In the meantime just relax, read, pray, meditate and maybe watch some movies. ❤

joyfulli

Irene, thank you,

Jumble

Thanks for letting us know Li, I wish you a speedy recovery. ♥

joyfulli

Yes, Marilyn, I hope to work hard.

joyfulli

I appreciate that, Isaly.

Isaly2

Sending you prayers and healing energy for a speedy recovery. Thanks for the heads up about your surgery.....

joyfulli

thank you, dhi and petslave.

canoekaw

I wish you a speedy recovery. My dear had to have both shoulders worked on. He would do it again for the relief he had after he recovered. The rehab is very important.

petslave

Others and I will be here when you are back. Good luck with it and rest when you can.

dhi

Take it easy so that the repair fully mends. We will b3e here and waiting.

joyfulli

Appreciate that, Ianto.

joyfulli

Thanks, Jean. I'm going to do my best.
Thanks, beyondwords. A new way of life for awhile -- starting with typing with my left hand!
Such a wise word, Trapper. I don't want to jeopardize this surgery in any way.

Thanks for letting us know. There are worriers here.
Just get better, Driving can wait.

Take care and don't overdo it. My dumb brother-in-law had knee surgery twice in six months because he didn't do what he was told to.

Life will be different for the next four+ weeks. Wishing you a speedy & complete recovery.

make sure you take good care of yourself and do all the exercises that you need to in order to have a great recovery
