I’m in the middle of processing my experience.
I heard the doctor say, “Make sure you keep it elevated, rested, don’t ice for more than ten minutes at a time, and can you change your compression bandage?”
I listen but I also need to think.
Listen and learn. Think and learn is called research.
Only the facts, logic and best practices: do no harm.
Check out your basic first aid.
I had an opportunity to learn something for myself.
Don’t put it off.
I put off and things got worse.
I put it off because of my circumstances.
Once I got started on my arm, I discovered how to see, “… all the kings men and all the kings horses couldn’t but Humpty together again.”
It also takes a lot of work on my part.
To prevent surgery (and many other problems) means I need to go back to work for me.
