Hey friends! Just wanted to update you on a little problem I have been having with my shoulder. It seems that mother nature and her 110 inches of snow from last winter tore my rotator cuff after shoveling out 18 storms. I think taking a sledgehammer to an old nasty kitchen when we were filming for a project may have contributed too. Anyway, long story short, I had an MRI about a month ago because for the last 6 months, I haven’t been able to move my arm in certain positions and it’s been very painful. Once my sleep started being interrupted, it was time to figure out what the problem was. Turns out, I tore my rotator cuff in my right shoulder.
I was totally fascinated with my MRI above that I had to take a picture as a keepsake. I know, not really a great keepsake but it’s still kind of cool looking. The image shows my right shoulder (the round part) and the white (with the arrow) is inflammation where the tendon broke off. I knew something wasn’t connected! I went through the entire summer doing physical therapy which only made it worse.
So what does this mean? This means I will be taking a tiny break from the blog for the next 6-8 weeks while I recover. We have lots of things scheduled over the next few weeks (including our kitchen reveal, foyer makeover and new barn doors!) and from time to time, I will be popping in to say hello and update you on what’s going on in our home. My mom has volunteered to guest post and type posts for me so that should be fun! I am not sure she knows what she is getting herself in to. Surgery is tomorrow so wish me luck! 😉
