Pain level: 4
Dislocations so far today: none! I'm on a pretty good role!
Subluxations so far today: Right shoulder several times
Meds: meloxicam--1 tablet.
Major complaint: some stiffness, pain and swelling in the joints of my hand (R>L)
Not a whole lot to report. Woke up again being able to make a fist, which is awesome. My hands were a little stiffer this morning than yesterday, but I'm staying positive.
So far the medicine hasn't had any bad effects on my stomach (besides my normal tummy-ills), and I know I'm over-following the warnings. Drinking double the water they require and doubling the you-can't-lay-down time. I figure if I respect the meds, they'll respect me. I hope.
Next week looks like entirely snow. This does not please me. What the hell, weather.
Time: 8:19 PM
Can touch forearm? Just barely--was doing better during the day, but I think meds are wearing off right about now.
