Today was the first day of therapy where I took the cast off and used both hands. Since I had the opportunity, I wanted to give everyone an update. I have made some big improvements over the past three weeks! My shoulder movement has increased drastically, and I have learned how I can incorporate my hand more into daily living. For the first time in three years, it feels like my left hand is actually part of my body and not just along for the ride. My left hand might not be functioning just like my right, but I still think this therapy program was a success! I've made major improvements, and I've learned how to use my left hand to greatly improve my quality of life. It has also given me tools that I can continue to build onto long after the program is over. I wanted to thank everyone for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers! I will post a final update on my last day, this upcoming Tuesday.
On Tuesday, I finished up the constraint induced therapy program. I had the opportunity to work with a great team of therapists, and I made a lot of improvements. The second picture shows how the range of movement in my shoulder changed over the course of three weeks. I also feel like my left hand is actually part of my body again. We wanted to be sure we got Rusty in the group picture since he always made himself present during therapy. There was never a dull moment with him around! Thank all of y'all for your prayers and support! It was a lot of hard work but I definitely feel like it paid off.
