#187

Elaine went to meet her new therapist today. She will work with her exclusively on her frozen shoulder, and doesn't want anyone else to work with her upper body. She is very confident that she will be able to help Elaine regain 100% mobility and range of motion. He range of motion is already at 25%, and it was at 0% just over a week ago! It are very excited. Elaine went in terrified after all the horror stories she has heard. The therapist assured her that she won't pin her down and break it up. Its a slow, and delicate process. You have to be gentle or you cause more harm than good. We are all very optimistic! The therapist is so excited to work with Elaine. She said it is so rare that someone comes in there prepared to work hard and that wants to get better. She doesn't know that it will be Elaine pushing her to work her harder, not the other way around. There is no one like her!

When Fred and Elaine returned home from the doctor, Staci and the kids picked Elaine up for a mini celebration lunch at the Counter for burgers and shakes. After lunch, the girls talked Nammie into taking them into a beauty supply store for nail polish. As you can imagine, it didn't take much to talk Elaine into it. Staci and Brian stayed outside so Brian didn't redecorate the store. The three of them certainly took their time shopping! I am not sure who is a worse influence on who! 



It was a fun afternoon. Elaine is feeling better, the torture stretcher is still painful, but its working, which makes the pain more bearable!
