You have me beat, Celle - I traded in a 71 Maverick (I might from my parents who'd bought it new) in 87 when I got out of school. It had been in Germany for 2 years when they didn't use rust proofing on US cars. Very little of original underside was left and I'd fixed an 8 inch hole into the trunk. The engine was still great, though!
Glad the driving went well - so glad your recovery has been smooth!
I saw my PT today. She's very pleased with my shoulder.
She gave me some exercises to gently strengthen my shoulder, but told me not to go overboard with them.
She's less pleased with me for being silly enough to spend too much time in the garden, sitting on a low, hard stool.
I have given myself ischial bursitis - inflammation of the bursa on the bone you sit on - and trochanteric bursitis, as well as inflammation at the top of my hamstrings and some inflammation of my iliotibial band as well.
I have orders to limit my time on hard chairs, to sit on pillows, and to alternate heat and icing on the sore areas.
I'm off now to rest, sitting on a warm wheat bag, with a frozen gel pack over my trochanteric bursa.
Afternoon "nanna-nap", here I come.
Wow, Never heard of ischial tuberosity and greater trochanter! I sit all the time on rock. My house is mostly flagstone with moss cracks I'm always weeding. I wear the seat out of about 6 pairs of pants a summer. Guess, I'll start using the pads I got, but never use. Take care of teh at toe. They HURT!!!
