My shoulder now is all jacked up. I can’t lift my arm perpendicular to my body or over my head without a major wince of pain.
The story: I was pushing the cart to attach it to my car hitch and it wouldn’t move in the grass after sorta digging itself into a hole under it’s own weight all night. So I pushed really, really hard and all the sudden it moved in a jolt and my totally tensed Deltoid in my right arm was then pulled/stretched very abruptly. It started hurting immediately and got much worse over the next hour. Now it’s a constant dull pain and super-sharp pain if I move it wrong. And of course it has to be my right, dominant arm.
I’ll be doing R.I.C.E. treatment all weekend (update: and NSAIDs, thanks Tari), hoping that by Monday it will be functional. Fridays have started to be very busy days on the corner so I’m super-bummed I’m going to miss it, but I haven’t been able to recruit any trained helper dogs–they have real jobs and lives, after all–so today we will be closed.
See you next week and thanks again for making our night at Twilight Concert Series superbly successful–it was really fun seeing my regular customers and lots of new faces. Love you guys!
