I was released from physical therapy last week. The pain/stiffness in my right shoulder has disappeared and my right hand grip is now equal to my left. I still can't make a complete fist and the swelling in my right hand is still there, but I have come a long way. I think with more work I will one day be able to make a fist again and will be able to pick up small things without a problem. Until then, I will continue doing my home therapy every day.
Other than that things are going pretty well with my rheumatoid arthritis. I have short flares here and there. Last week it was in my knee and it took all my energy. But, within a few days I was back to working out and walking without a limp again.
I hope today finds you feeling as well. Happy day! Be gentle with yourself.
