Bring Me Sunshine Week 4

Wow what a difference a week can make. It’s officially week four of the Bring Me Sunshine sew-along but before I get started I just wanted to update those who sent messages asking about what I did and how I was going. Just over a week ago I had an accident which landed me on my left shoulder breaking my shoulder and fracturing the ball. The pain was so intense I found it hard to breath, waiting for the ambulance to arrive which took over an hour felt like a lifetime. Finally when the paramedics arrived I was greeted with 3, 2 experienced and a trainee. I was so relieved when I heard the sirens and for a split second I didn’t feel any pain but before I knew it, I could feel it all again but just knowing someone was there to help me and that I was going to get me some relief was relief in itself.

I won’t bore you with the boring stuff but in a nutshell I was sent home with no pain relief and we had a public holiday here the next day so safe to say I was not a very happy girl. I spent the week in what I’d say was the most pain I’ve ever felt, after many Telehealth calls I finally got some drugs but it wasn’t until I was able to see the fracture specialist that he took one look at me and said what have they done to you. The sling I was given was applied incorrectly which was the main cause of the extra discomfort. I cannot thank my specialist enough for the instant relief, I was like a new person. So with a long road ahead of me, 8 weeks healing and then 6 months physio, I’m just taking 1 day at a time because really what are my options lol.

Thank you for all of your kind messages!
