Good News, Bad News

I saw my surgeon yesterday. He's a great guy. Don and I both like him a lot. He delivered both good news and bad news.

Good News: I'm healing.
Bad News: I've got a long way to go.

Good News: I am allowed to lift my arm.
Bad News: It won't go higher than waist level.

Good News: I will eventually be able to sleep in bed.
Bad News: It will probably be Mother's Day when I do.

Good News: With strength training exercises, I can stop when it hurts.
Bad News: With stretching exercises, I need to make it hurt.

Good News: My goal for the month is to be able to reach up into the cupboard and pull out a dinner plate.
Bad News: I was hoping I'd be doing push ups.
