Elaine had her injection in her arm today. The actual injection was relatively painless and quick. She spent the rest of the day relaxing and icing her arm. It grew increasingly sore as the day wore on. The usual pain in her shoulder was escalated by the pain from the shot. She was quite miserable this afternoon and we are hoping that she will be able to get some sleep tonight. Fred insisted she skip the other two sessions of her arm stretcher today, she was in enough pain for one day! She could continue to feel soreness from the shot for the next few days. It is unknown how quickly she will start to get some pain relief from shot, sometimes its as soon as a three days and sometimes takes weeks. We are hoping/begging for sooner!!! She deserves it!
