It's good to know I am still not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. I don't know why I was thinking that my recovery time should be much more miraculous than what anybody said it would/should be. I slept in bed for the past couple of nights, and I actually slept for two hours both times without waking up. Of course, other than those two consecutive hours per night, a lot of wake-ups were still happening.
Overall, though, my arm actually was feeling quite good. As I explained to the hub, my actual shoulder never did hurt either before or after the surgery. It's always been from the shoulder down to my wrist that had pain, and according to the doc, that's the norm. For those first 5 days after surgery, holy shitballs....it was like the world's worst toothache radiating down my arm whether I was moving or not.
Cut to Tuesday, where I found that my arm was feeling pretty damn good. It made me wonder why on earth I could possibly need this sling for the probable two months. I did leave it on except when changing clothes just like I was told, though. Unfortunately, me in a sling means little if I'm not in pain, and I found myself moving and using my right arm and hand quite a bit.
Back to "I'm an idiot". On Wednesday my arm was throbbing pretty good when I was trying to sleep, and Thursday it hurt more again. Even the top of my actual shoulder hurts a little now. Methinks I made a mistake thinking I was all cool and shit because I could move so well. Lesson learned. I'm going to really have to try and concentrate on not using it even if it feels fine. I googled it. Yup. Mistake made; lesson for sure learned.
Today I'm just showing a polish I threw on last week. I've had it forever, and I think it is the first multichrome I ever bought. With all of the fancy, pricier duo and multi's out there that we all rave about, this little beauty has never gotten its fair share of praise. It's kind of a shame. If you don't own it, run your bunz over to Walmart and grab it. I think I paid around $2 for it. Keep reading to see what it is. ;)
Of course, I couldn't capture all of its beauty, but I tried. There are several colors that the camera just wouldn't pic up.
This one rivals any of my other color shifters and cost a whole lot less than most of them. That doesn't mean I don't want some more of those expensive ones, but people really should make more of a fuss over this one.
I suppose you might want to know what this cheap little beauty is. After I did underwear of Orly Liquid Vinyl, this is two coats of Wet n Wild Gray's Anatomy. Seriously....go buy it. You won't be sorry.
I'm dying to do my nails and stamp on them or something. Anything! I just wander around looking at nails and then pouting because mine are still naked. Maybe today I'll try again, but if it hurts at all, I have to make myself stop.
Like I said; lesson learned.
