Exercise time!

OK, now that the drains are out and the bandages are mostly off, it's time for exercises. I just completed doing some arm stretches and shoulder movements. The arm is pretty tight yet but that should change as I continue to "walk" my fingers up the wall and stretch out the muscle. The skin under my arm is very sore and sensitive and I don`t even like clothes rubbing against it. The incision wound is not painful at all.
The snow sure came as a surprise today but it looks pretty outside! Everything is white and clean again. Maybe I`ll walk to my mailbox in a bit and pick up the mail. That will give me some fresh air, too. I feel pretty good and notice that my energy level continues to get better and better each day. I`m so thankful for this smooth surgery recovery thus far.

Resting in His care,


  1. Hi Sandra,
    Well, it took me a while, but I finally figured out this whole Google account/blog thing (with a little helpful advice from Jeanette).
    So, even though you haven't heard from me...I've been thinking about you and praying for you. I am so glad to hear that you are noticing your energy level getting better with each day. Keep resting and getting stronger. AND...keep those updates coming...we all like to hear how you are doing and how your day has been!

  2. So glad to hear your energy is returning steadily!
    I, too, tried to post a comment yesterday with no luck, so I am glad it wasn't just me... JEB had a problem too!
    Praying for you... hope to see you Friday - I'll call you on Friday morning.
    ♥ Sarah

  3. Hi Sandra,
    The snow is pretty and the mountains are beautiful, but I liked the spring weather better! I hope you didn't think we were ignoring you - I wasn't able to post anything the last two days either. Just remember, if you need anything (that includes company) I'm only 2.5 minutes away:)
