So it's been just over 2 months since I broke my shoulder and arm.
This weekend I was able to insert and remove pierced earrings - a small but very exciting feat.
Also, once this weekend I was able to pull both socks on, usually can only get the left one on without help.
Got my hair cut again as can't manage it to blow dry or put up in a knot or hair clip - hopefully that is soon - in the meanwhile it's short and being curly, works for me.
Also, the biggest of all, I was able to pick up Buddy if I used my good arm for his weight(considerable:) and kind of held his one rear leg til I got him in my arms.
Small but wondrous feats.
