Elaine woke up this morning feeling the best she has in a long time. Her pain was manageable, she slept great and she even surprised Fred and brought him breakfast in bed for a change:)

This morning, Elaine and Fred went to her physical therapist to work on her shoulder. The therapist couldn't believe how much her range of motion had improved. She was so excited, and it made Elaine excited. She continued on with the torture chamber and ice (both things she hates). She was also wearing her evil eye bracelet today. She believes that she has it, and a Greek friend confirmed it. She did a prayer and splashed some water, so hopefully it has been removed. Its a Greek thing for those of you that have no idea what we are talking about! 

Unfortunately, as the day wore on, she didn't take her pain medication fast enough, and the pain got out of control. The Smiths, Francoises, and Brownsteins did have a wonderful dinner on the patio of Big Canyon tonight. Elaine received encouraging words from the Brownstein family, and we were so happy to see Callae doing so well and feeling great (after a fight with brain cancer). They shared some words of wisdom with Elaine, and are so proud of her fight! Elaine has finally conceded to getting some rest during the day and to managing pain! It was an encouraging day!
