Well, I picked up the violin and tried to play it one week ago but it wasn't really possible. The next day I went to my first physical therapy session. They gave me exercises to do, and I have done them faithfully for a week.
I went for my second session today and with the exercises, I am now able to open my elbow up 12 more degrees than I could last week. I get static splints on Monday, and with the combination of that and the exercises, I am hoping to be able to play by my first date out on June 11th.
I am excited about the progress I have made so far!! Without your prayers and encouragement, I think I might have just given up and quit. It's been a long 5 1/2 years of pain, but it was worth it to have the 2 children we have now and all the experiences I have had on the road. I pray that I have done some things right and that the kingdom was increased in some way! Thank you all for your continued prayers.
