|I loved the dry climate! The view is pretty good too.|
|My grandma; I definitely don't get my height from my mom's side of the family|
|My grandpa. We were eating lunch at this really good Chinese restaurant.|
They had some pretty good sugar doughnuts.
Once we returned home to Illinois it was time to switch gears and get ready for the doctor appointment in Boston. Fortunately all my records are pretty much together in binders so the packing aspect of things didn't take long at all. When it comes to getting ready to meet with a new doctor, it is more mental preparation for me; making sure I know what points I want to make, what questions I want to ask etc.
At the appointment with Dr. W it was decided the reverse shoulder replacement was NOT a good option for my right shoulder joint because my right shoulder blade is not moving properly at all and there is the fear that I will end up dislocating. It was made clear to me that you do not want to dislocate with the reverse replacement. The good news is Dr. W did propose an alternative option but before making an official plan of treatment he wants to contact my other doctors to get more of my history. The main goal at this point is to improve my quality of life by getting me in less pain and hopefully help me gain a little more motion to make me more functional. I am hoping to hear from somebody in the next week or so with how to proceed.
|Where I met with the doctor|
|My mom and I|
|Eating my sandwich. It was very|
|Boston airport was unique compared to the other airports we have been too.|
They have rocking chairs!
|May 2014. Looks much different compared to|
September. There are now two funky depressions
on the left which are either detached or loose
muscle attachments. The right one is now
protruding at the bottom and has its own depression.
|Side view of my scaps. I have no clue what|
will be done with them. I have to send an
email to my doctor next week.
|That's my motion when I try to raise|
my arms up with my elbows bent. You
can see the left scap sticking out.
|This is only how far my arms move in front of me. Pretty pathetic.|
Everything I do in the day is all elbow motion.
