The back of Elaine's arm shows the worst bruising
While the improvement in Elaine's fractured humerus is noticeable, she still has much pain and is limited in movement. She can move her left hand around quite a lot now, as long as she does not raise it by bending the elbow. And while she can move her arm slightly out from her body, it is very limited in that direction as well. Anything beyond those limits means great pain. And when Gizmo climbs up over her body and her left arm and shoulder to get to the back of the couch it really gets a rise from her! But we are heartened that healing is taking place. She was told by a nurse in the hospital that the first week would be the worst, and that is about what it was for Elaine. It is now eleven days since she fell and fractured her humerus.
