Yesterday was my first "passive" physical therapy session and it wasn't much fun even though I got to lie down for about 40 minutes while someone else did the heavy lifting of my arm. I will be doing this passive activity twice a week for 3 more weeks and then I start on the "real" physiotherapy that does not involve any lying down.
Today was back to the Orthopedist who took another set of x-rays to add to his collection and then told me that there is no sign of the pieces knitting back together yet. When I expressed some disappointment he said "well, it's only 4 weeks and it's a big break" ….. In my opinion my bones are being too passive in their knitting back together so I am going to up my milk/cream/yogurt intake (my taxi driver today told me I should be drinking Camel milk). I go back in 3 weeks time when he will take more x-rays. In the meantime I stay in the sling attire and continue strengthening my left hand.
I am way, way behind in posting my photo a day photos but I have religiously taken a photo every day with my left hand – some days I have to take quite a few of something before I get one that is not fuzzy and blurry.
The first week after "the incident" I did not leave the house – hell, for the first 3 days I was still in the same upper clothes and pretty much unwashed – so I was limited to the exciting things around the house or the view of the alley from our deck.

58 – watching the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics on my laptop
59 - this is a carafe with some liqueur in it - I'm not sure what it is anymore but it has taken on the bright yellow colour of the shelf it sits on-
60 – Paella Man - I bought this little guy in Madrid in 2007. He has a lump of rice in his pan – the glue holding the lump in the pan has dried out and often I find the little lump lying on the shelf as though he is flinging his pot around when we are not watching:
61 – the inside of my wine glass - empty – vox is being difficult and I now have two empty glasses!
62 – first signs of spring green in one of the outdoor deck pots.
63 – get well flowers
