Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

Updates from the last couple of days

Tuesday night/Wednesday morning
sleep is proving to be a bit of a problem. the pain is not a problem, meds are working very well. I need to keep arms elevated so I am on the recliner surrounded by pillows.

kitties have been very sweet, taking turns cuddling Lizzie and I (she's on the couch in case I need anything).

and my amazing love. she is so fierce when she goes into caretaker mode. I am so fortunate to have her sharing this life we have for so many reasons.

Another update. I have not needed pain meds since last night. Been using ice frequently, and still keep my arms elevated most of the time. Lizzie has been making me get up every hour or so and walk around. I wear out easily, but not terribly.

I did have a worry before a nap today. I felt a bit of constriction in my chest, which was worrisome ... until I realized that it was muscle pain from having to get up off the couch without using my hands.

Things are going as well as they could be. I go in for a followup on Tuesday. The wraps come off on Friday. I'm staying home this week and probably back to work on Monday.

    I am on DW, same name as here. I will, as I have done for months now, post there and have it drift over here.
