Ellen Update

Ellen is tired of waiting to get well. Here is a picture of her outside working one-handed in the snow. If you look close, you will see she is missing a mitten.  Last week the doctor said the did not need to wear the arm sling to immobilize her left arm if she was not doing anything to re-injure it. Ellen is recovering from rotator cuff surgery she had at the end of November. It has been a very frustrating time for her because this is the second time it has been injured this past year. She has physical therapy twice a week with daily exercises. Unfortunately, the recovery time from this type surgery is many months, and it is a painful recovery. She is very limited in what she can do and at this point very frustrated that she has to spend a lot of time sitting one armed.
How can you help encourage Ellen? She likes to get cards in the mail. We are temporarily living in Kettering Ohio. The address is:
