8 Jan 2014 broken arm update

I had a specialist appointment today & another x-ray.  I found that I have broken the round ball at the top of my right arm bone - where it goes into the shoulder joint.

It is now 2 weeks since the injury and apparently it should be less painful in about another week.  Currently it is very hard to sleep because my uncontrollable arm will flop to one side & I get a sharp intense pain.

To move I first have to use my (good) left arm to pull my non-working right arm across my chest and then roll onto my left side so I can push myself up with my working arm.  It can be a tricky manoeuvre and every incident sets back the recovery a bit.
