Sue had physical therapy today. It is designed to stretch her muscles and prevent the scar tissue from limiting the movement in her arms. She is scheduled to see the therapist twice a week for the next three weeks. We are not sure how long that will last.

We also went to the surgeon's office to have the remaining surgical drain tubes removed. That was cause for celebration, as those things were uncomfortable and irritating to carry around with her all the time. The doctor said everything was looking good. She did have an allergic reaction to the antibiotics they gave her last week, so we stopped that medication. The doctor did not believe there was any sign of infection, so no new medication was prescribed.

We have also cut back on the pain medication. She cannot drive a car while she is on the pain medication, so we are trying to get her off that as soon as possible. Other than being tired, she is feeling better.
