There is good news from the MRIs. No abnormality in the shoulder found. While I am everlastingly grateful for that, I would also be a big liar if I did not say that I was hoping that they would find some sort of 'easy fix'. My shoulder aches badly from yesterday's two hour immobilization. BUT, the good news is that it is not cancer. They are adopting an aggressive 'wait and watch'. I'm comfortable with that. The imaging will be done in Pittsburgh. If something just taking root, beginning to grow, it will not be missed for long.
I've never dealt with chronic pain before, so that is a bit discouraging. 3 motrins take the edge off of it, but I cannot remember the last time that I was simply, blessedly pain free. Still. It is not cancer, and I can live with pain.
Late edit: This post sounds ungrateful. I am not. I'm as grateful to God as any one woman can be. I think that I am, once again, shocked silent.
FYI: Don't get used to it.
