Anne-Marie has been very slow to recover from her surgery. Because she had to wait over three weeks to get all the procedural paraphernalia removed, she's been hard-pressed to function at livable levels.
She's lost most of the movement in her left arm since surgery. More specifically, she can move her elbow and wrist, but not her shoulder. Our wish that this week's post-op would help the situation did not come true.
This situation has made taking care of the kids a challenge and driving nearly impossible. Radiation is considered an urgent priority by the doctors, but physical therapy on Anne-Marie's arm may take precedence.
