Blue Monday - Blue Report

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Sometimes, it SEEMS as if Mr. Linky is not working, but I've discovered that if more than one person is linking in at the same time, it kinda slows down. So, if things seem to jam when you are linking in, just keep trying, and you'll meet with success.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday! Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

My Blue today is in the form of jokes. I hope they bring you a chuckle.

The results of the MRI is that I've torn my rotator cuff off the bone in several places. Furthermore, it happened so long ago that the muscles are atrophied, making surgery impossible. (All along, I thought the pain I was experiencing was arthritis, and I never checked it out! Instead, it was the rotator cuff. The tear that I felt was the last shred of the muscle pulling away. )

The orthopedic surgeon suggests we try three weeks of therapy. My first appointment is May 14th.

Happy Blue Monday!

Hope your Mother's Day was perfect Sally! I will be praying for you. My sister had rotor cuff surgery. It was not a fun experience so I am praying your therapy works well. Take care and I always enjoy your blues! Hugs, Anne

I'm sorry to hear this, Sally. I hope PT will help you get more motion back and that your pain will go away. Feel better soon! I hope you had a good Mother's Day!

I'm hoping that physical therapy does the trick for you, as it did for me. (Among other issues, I had 4 herniated disks, 2 of them torn, and am still power-walking over the Brooklyn Bridge to work each day.) So do what they tell you to do, no matter how hard it is!

With the weather at least they would probably get it right about as often if they made it up in advance. Best wishes for a quick recovery for your shoulder, I hope you had a great Mother's Day.

Hi Sally - I always wonder if my "arthritis" is just that or something else - I'm too busy to get it checked - anyhow I hope the therapy works out for you - the second cartoon made me chuckle.

I have nothing to complain about compared to what you have and are going through. You must have a lot of inner strength to endure so much. Wishing you nothing but the best. Take care my dear friend.

Hi Sally,

Happy Blue Monday! I'm so sorry that your MRI has shown permanent damage. I do hope that the therapy your consultant is proposing at least brings you some relief! My partner recently found out that he has some permanent nerve damage from a prolapsed disc. He's not in any pain thank goodness and will start physio this week to try to reduce the pressure on other discs in his neck. Fingers crossed it helps!

Take care,

Alexa T said...

I just saw the title... Hope you'll feel much better starting with tomorrow, May 14th when you'll be in therapy (as I understand by reading the message above)!! All the best with of lots of positivity in all you do, Sally! Happy Blue Monday! Alexa T

So sorry to hear about your arm and I will be praying that the therapy works. On the bright side, you still have your sense of humor and I love the cartoons!

Hello Sally, I hoped to join your meme this week but I guess i was too late as it appears to be closed. Small wonder since it is no longer Monday :) I'm sorry to hear about your rotator cuff injury. It sounds painful, but I'm really hoping the therapy will help. Thanks for the work you do to keep up this beautiful meme. Your jokes were great!
