#217

Elaine and Fred enjoyed a nice leisurely morning, knowing they didn't have to get out of house early today. They enjoyed a visit from Staci and Brian, and Ampa taking Brian for a ride in his car! Elaine finally conceded to Fred, allowing him to cut a hole in her shoe to try and help alleviate some of the pain from her bunion. Fred was right, it did help a little and Elaine was happy to have some relief. They are going to see the doctor tomorrow so hopefully they will have some answers!




Fred and Elaine went to see the arm therapist this afternoon. They did a few exercises to show just how frozen her shoulder is. The good news in, in four weeks, it has improved significantly. The bad news is, it went undiagnosed for so long, and continued to get worse. This could have, and should have been corrected by now, or at least close. Its unfortunate and not fair. In Elaine-style, she is staying strong, not looking back, and very much looking forward to putting it behind her. If it wasn't for Fred's persistence and being unsatisfied with the answers they were getting, it would probably still be undiagnosed. Elaine remains dedicated to getting it better! We are hopeful there is a non-surgical option for her bunion! The big picture remains bright, and we are thankful to all of you who continue to love and support Fred and Elaine along this journey!
