Another Broken Arm Update

I tried publishing this post via my Android with pictures of my latest xrays. But it refused.

I'm trying really hard not to get depressed over my latest xrays. There was very little change. Been using my Exogen, an ultrasound bone stimulator everyday since Christmas week. My diet is more than squeaky clean. The kitchen resembles a vitamin store. Never in all my life have I taken so many vitamins.

March 12th marks the 6 month anniversary of my broken humerus. There won't be any bubbly bottles popping open for this occasion. But it may lead to a full diagnosis of a nonunion fracture.

Despite the outcome, I've been able to keep up at the Salon when they have me come in. Mind you, I've not been put on the schedule. I come when they call.

From what I know, my arm should be in pain and useless at this point. But it's not. Been working out with a 1 lb weight, using an arm pully, and lifting my 32 oz cup to my lips. Amazing! This is a miracle!

My Salon boss is dumbfounded as are some of my closest friends.

It's proof that God can operate and heal however He wishes. Believe me. I bug Him everyday. Sometimes all day.

Hope everyone has all of their bones intact.

Hugs and chocolate, all!


  1. Hopefully you have some answers soon.

    1. Me, too. I feel like these tests should've been done by the 12th week.

  2. Oh My Goodness !
    I just don't know !
    I will light a candle for you.

    1. Thank you, Norma. This is really taking a lot out of me. I tire easily.

  4. What an ordeal! Sorry to hear about all that you are having to struggle with, but there is a reason for every struggle in our lives. You will become stronger for what you have to overcome in life.

    So far my bones are all intact. Getting older perhaps, but still intact.

  5. Thanks for the update, Shelly. What a wild adventure this break has been!

    On the bright side, you are talking to God a lot. He likes that.

    You remain in my prayers.

    1. Very wild. Anyway, God is the better doctor. Can't trust the human ones.

  6. Thinking of you and will pray some more. Maybe you need chocolate?

    1. Not allowed to eat my daily dose of chocolate. Bad for broken bones.

  7. Don't push it too fast. Let it heal for good.

  8. That's amazing!

    Praying that it does heal.


I'm dying to know what you think.
