I'm calling this picture a "sling shot."
Wednesday evening and yesterday were rough for me, but today the pain from surgery lessened. I still have some discomfort but it's bearable.

I'll probably wear the sling until the doctor removes the bandages on Tuesday. I have to keep the elbow bent and supported. I can't use my right hand much; am typing with my left.

I've been thinking of my first husband's uncle "Popcorn" who only had one arm, the result of an accident involving a power saw. Somehow he got along and lived pretty much normally with just one hand. Now I wonder how he managed so well. It's incredibly difficult for me.
