6 Weeks Post


6 weeks post accident
Originally uploaded by annetics
Here's a snapshot of the Xray I had done today on my clavicle. It has actually been hurting more in the past week, but the orthopedic PA says that it is still in a good position, and that it is beginning to heal. I'm very grateful that I did not require surgery and will try to be patient. I have a lot of pain in my arm and shoulder area and I guess that may subside once the fracture heals? The physical therapist was pleased with the range of motion of my shoulder joint and got me started on some simple exercises to build my core strength up again. The pain in my back doesn't seem to be improving much these days but I guess that is not too surprising. In my mind, 6 weeks was the magic point when I thought I would feel better, and 8 weeks the absolute latest that I would still be healing. In the meantime, I am glad that I'm able to ride my bike trainer, as mind-numbing as it is, and was very excited to get up to a full hour on Saturday. I'll continue with the mini-updates on the right-hand side of my blog using Twitter. These are mostly so I can keep track of my progress and for my family members who enjoy these details. But, follow along if you're interested.

anne, i know it was suposed to show your collar bone but the first thing i noticed in that xray was your freaking backbone. if i know anything at all, its that you are going to get through this and rock another ironman.
by the way if i had an xray right now it would just show my big gut and butt.
