Having had recent shoulder surgery, I've found it a bit challenging to do many things - one of which is to do my hair.
|This is a recent picture showing the shoulder immobilizer in place.|
Fortunately, my sis-in-law, a former beautician, had just done my hair the day before!
To take care of my inability to fix my hair, I ordered a ballcap with a ponytail sewn in.
However, I haven't had many chances to wear it much, because
|my husband has been having too much fun with it!!!|
In facing a few challenges with my shoulder being immobilized, I am encouraged by some words written by the prophet Habakkuk. He said:
"Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields,
and the cattle barns are empty,
YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD!
I WILL BE JOYFUL IN THE GOD OF MY SALVATION!
The Sovereign LORD is my STRENGTH!
Well, I know I don't have it that bad! There are beautiful blossoms on my apple tree right now. Whether they will bear fruit or not, I have no idea.

But I do know this. God tells me not to worry, but to give Him all my cares for He cares for me. 1 Peter 5:7
I am very thankful that I didn't have to have the rotator cuff repaired. It turns out that I had a large bone spur pressing on my rotator cuff, but it was not torn. What did need fixing was the biceps tendon that was badly torn. Like a rotator cuff tear, it was fixed with a screw to hold it in place into the humorous bone in the top of the shoulder, and recovery and rehab will be similar. I am so grateful to God that the tear did not completely rupture, for the surgery required would have been MUCH WORSE!
