Good news. Picked this up from2610


Craigslist. It’s used but works and is very light and very welcome especially since I began PT! ROM exercises. And I actually have ROM! Secretly I was afraid I’d barely be able to move it bc no one I know has the shape of plates I do and even the PT admitted he’d never seen them before.

Also, more docs were submitted to STD (which ends 8/6/21) and LTD. The insurance co. nurse approved everything. I also saw my surgeon gave insurance a tentative return to work date of end of September. But he said it’s very tentative. That would be 4.5 mos. I’d love it if I walked pretty well by then, could drive, and carry things.

Great update.

Any thoughts on how I can put on weight? I lost 15lbs. during this whole thing and am now at about an 18.5 BMI and have to pick it up. I added bread for lunch to make a sandwich. And I'm going to add another sandwich later in the day. Will the Muscle Milk I have (but don't need any longer since I'm eating) help? Will that help me gain some weight do you think? Or something more like Boost? This is odd for me as I'm sure it is for most of us. I appreciate any suggestions.

Maybe make a snack of 1-2 Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. The real ones, not the sugar free.
