Year Two – Week Five

Whoo Hoo!!! It is nine weeks since I fractured my proximal humurus and humurus head. I saw my orthopedic specialist today for an update on my latest x-rays and ultrasound and the news was amazing! I am healed – ALL healed.

I had natural healing, my bones stayed in place and healed perfectly and I am off of ANY restrictions. I can do Zumba, lift weights, wave my arms in the air like I just don’t care! I have to work on my range of motion for a bit but the doctor said I was a very good healer. 😁

I know it may partly be genetics but personally I think that it has helped considerably that I was in good shape before the ‘incident’ and that I have taken care of myself since.

I have been following doctor’s instructions and maintaining the limitations he had me on. I have been drinking my beet juice, taking my vitamins D and B12, and taking calcium and zinc. I have been doing aerobics virtually every day. And I have been meditating and keeping a positive attitude. 🤗🤗🤗

I am so excited. I never asked about a prognosis but at my age (almost 68), I kind of wondered whether I would ever be healed well enough to full on Zumba again or lift weights. I just didn’t know how strong a bone could be once it broke right through like that. Who knew?

Anyway, this is the best news I could hope for. I came home and did a full You Tube Zumba lesson. Our weather is mild today so I will go spend some time outside soaking in the sunshine and enjoying the fresh air.

Tonight, we are going to celebrate with KFC. Dan did buy steak and shrimp to barbecue for me but since I asked for chicken, we will do the steak supper tomorrow night.

Molly will score a few treats herself, even if she was responsible for breaking my arm in the first place. 😂

That is all for today. I am so excited to be back to my full fitness routine. In a few weeks, I can look forward to garden planting and getting some much needed outdoor maintenance and painting done.

Keep safe and have a great day! 🌞💞

  1. Thank you, Dwight and hugs to Alice. I am still excited. 😂 I we by outside this afternoon and chopped some snow and ice away from the front sidewalk to drain some water away. 😁

  2. Thank you, Sue! Yes and it was filled with sections of an orange. You would think it was steak. 😂 She loves fruit – the ones that are good for her. We don’t feed her grapes, currants, and the like.

  3. Both my shoulder injuries happened several years ago. I still have issues and have to be careful how I use my arms. After surgery I developed RSD and they will not do surgery again so I live with the damage. The pain is not too bad if I am careful using my arms and don’t fall injuring them more.

  4. I am sorry that you still have to deal with it. I am scared of falling. 🥺. I have been walking Molly with my daughter (she holds onto Molly). Our streets and sidewalks are so bad with ice and snow and water. They are always waiting for me. 🙄

  5. I hope you never fall again. It is good that your daughter is helping with walking Molly. Hoping too that soon your streets and sidewalks will be dry. Take care sweet Anne and we both need not fall again. Hugs ❤
