My husband has gotten tired of complaining of shoulder pain and has actually seen a specialist. It only took ten years. The news is not the greatest for him, but neither are his medical woes of the worst case scenario. He may not need surgery and that's good enough for now. He may have pain relief from medical treatment and that's music to my ears--probably his, too.
The other miracle?
MLTL had, and I quote, "a good wash last night". He was able to describe the contents of his shower, which we know he hasn't seen in 5 long years. He asked my son whose toothbrush that was in his shower. The answer was, he didn't know.
In matters of the heart, the good news is we now have pacer fire with capture that will kick in when his heart tuckers out.
The bad news is, he can't get the site wet for 5 days. In his mind, MLTL will interpret this to mean he should never shower again.
I really think my family owes me big time for that one and only shower we'll likely ever see him take.
