Almost all healed…thanks to…
Me! Me! Charlie Bear here…and I say Mom Peep’s healed elbow is because of me!
Yup, it was me who snuggled, nuzzled, and licked her back to health.
Okay, maybe Dad Peep’s advice to take extra calcium to promote bone healing, and the people at the office who helped Mom Peep so she didn’t do too much work with that right arm, and the exercises the doctor gave her helped too.
She broke the elbow on March 6. Six weeks later, Mom visited the ortho doc. He took x-rays and the bone is all healed! He told Mom it takes a long time to heal the muscles and tendons from the wrist all the way up to the shoulder because they were traumatized in the fall, but she was doing good. He said she has 10% more mobility to gain back in relation to the arm extension but it’s coming along.
So that’s fabulous news. And I’m so happy for her. She can do pretty much all the stuff she did before (brushing her hair, reaching above her head), and she’s hoping she’ll be able to work in one more thing this summer:
She wants to get back to golfing (this is a picture of her from a few years ago). Then she says she’ll be really happy and physically back to normal. (Whatever normal is!).
Wiggles and Woofs to you,
