What makes this picture so extraordinary is that my left arm is clearly sticking out at an angle that has otherwise been foreign to it.
I actually enjoyed walking this weekend and my shoulder seems to be slowly recovering, simultaneously gaining strength and flexibility.
Curiously, the skin had shrunk around my previously immobile shoulder and now that the joint is unlocking, the skin under my armpit has split like John Banner’s shirt.
Physio/rehab is daily and difficult but my spirits are higher than they’ve been for nearly a year.
Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things.
