No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I went in this morning for my first physical therapy session. After waiting to get seen, the PT came in, did some motion tests (both active and static) and then stated that he doesn't see this kind of a rotator cuff tear in a 30 year old, even in a traumatic injury. He mostly sees this bad of a tear in 60 year olds. Then he said he wouldn't even see me until I was seen by the orthopedic surgeon, and he begged the dr.'s nurse until she got me in today because he said I was "that bad." Really not a good sign. I was almost hyperventilating as I left the office because all I could think about was that I would have to have surgery. I called my mom (that's what they are there for right?) and she calmed me down. I feel better now, but still nervous to see what I find out this afternoon. I'm assuming I'll need an MRI. From there...who knows? I really just want to be able to move my arm again and to RUN :)
Dropped hubby off at the hotel in STL last night since I was supposed to have PT this morning. Miss him terribly. It sucks to have him gone all the time. But being a single lady has its perks--I do what I want, when I want over the summer!
Here's the meal plan for today:
B: Emerald Nut and oatmeal cluster mix, OJ (8 oz)
L: hot dog on a bun (not sure if the hot dog is the low fat one or not...); watermelon slices
D: I'm wanting to cook, but I think it will depend on my emotional state after seeing the surgeon today. If I cook, I'm going to make a veggie sandwich (stir-fried zucchini, toasted bread, and a laughing cow wedge). If I order out, I will get a combo of two of either soup and salad, or one of those two and a sandwich...not sure yet. I'm really hoping just to make the sandwich.
Still sitting at 190. Woohoo! Hope to see a lower number by the end of the week!
