Lymphatic massage, and weird latex allergy on my arm.

Hello my friends,

Boy has this been a crazy, and busy week. First off, I spent a lot of time running to and from appointments for the physical therapist. Then I had this freaky rash on my arm from the bandage. So, for now, I am just dealing with the swelling in my arm by doing massage and arm exercises. I think it is starting to drain. But my hand is still super numb and very swollen. We also spent a bit of time exploring our turf here in Tennessee this past weekend. We drove through the hills looking for the exit for a state park called frozen head. We took a wrong turn and got sort of trapped on a road that I strongly suspect was filled with backwood stills for hillbilly moonshiners. No, really, it wasn't quite like that. But it was extremely out of the way, and I will always remember the adventure of it. Also, we took a very long hike in the ijams nature center. It was a beautiful and awesome day. I can't even believe I walked as long and as far as I did. A year ago, I wouldn't have made it out of the parking lot! It was a memorable day! I'll share some photos here:


There is a lovely photo of my thumb! Have you ever done that? It is too funny not to share. The rest of the photos are my family, Sadie and Oscar, and the view along the hike on the boardwalk trail of the ijams nature center. One of my new favorite places here in Tn.

Below you will find a video of the steps my physical therapist walked me through to lymphatic massage:
