Belated Jumble Spoiler – 11/15/21

Today on Luann - Comics by Greg Evans - GoComics

Visual Description:  A slacking Luann.


Clue/Question:  Hoping to get away from her homework, Luann reached for – – –

All Luann Comic Strips - GoComics


(So, I guess the Sunday Jumble was setting up the Guest Jumblers week!  Great.  I always enjoy the guest Jumblers.  And, Luann happens to be one of my favorite comics.  I’ve been reading it since it was more crudely drawn, and Luann was just a kid with a big crush on Aaron Hill, and her brother Brad was just a big doofus.  She’s almost like a daughter to me.

There were no new clue words this day.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  However, we have definitely seen “esege” in previous Jumbles.  No real stumpers though.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  It did an admirable job disguising the final answer.

That’s Luann alright!  She’s in college now, and her parents run a nice restaurant.  They’ve added a good number of characters over the past few years.  They give Luann more story lines.  I never knew that Greg Evans did the comic strip with who I’m guessing would be his wife, Karen!  They should put her name on the byline!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Loved this blog Unc!

    And thanks for asking previously — things are going well. I’m probably going to be booted from shoulder PT in about five weeks! What a process.

    Take care, LL

    You’re welcome, kiddo! I need to make some calls for shoulder surgery. My last cortisone shot is wearing off, and I’m in pain again. I’m pretty sure I maxed out on the shots. Time to go under the knife! — YUR

    Oh my. Well, I’m certainly happy I had the surgery. The tear wasn’t going to get better, the bursa was a mess and was removed, my clavicle was shaved and they ‘cleaned up’ the area. Doing the PT and moving forward has been interesting to say the least! The achiness and hurt is vivid. Our bodies are incredible. The biggest caution is not to over do!

    Given your (unfortunate) recently acquired knowledge, can you pass on any information on what to expect during shoulder surgery, post-surgery, and with PT to get range of motion back. I have a tear that doesn’t affect me, unless I want to do intemperate athletic activities again, as I’ve done my entire life. So I’m preparing myself emotionally. Anything you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    I guess I’ll find out for myself, sooner or later, LL. It looks like Jaime has some questions for you too. Is there an epidemic of shoulder tears going around??? — YUR

  6. 6 LindaLee November 21, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Jamie — I went into this like you, absolutely no idea what to expect. My tear was beginning to affect my range of motion, and I’d been doing PT for about a year. The arm arm began to get weaker, and the range of motion was becoming less and less. I was told that as the body adjusts to the tear and ensuing weakness, other muscles, etc. take over and you don’t notice the issue as much, but when the body has no where else to get help for the shoulder the fatigue, soreness, pain, and loss of range of motion come more into play.

    The surgery was OK, it was out patient. When the block wore off I took the drugs as directed until I felt like I could use ibuprofen and tylenol, and that worked well. I had used all of my prescription meds.

    I had my surgery on a Friday and I was at PT the following Thursday. I had only had the sling off about 3 times for a shower and could not imagine what they would do to me at PT. Apparently the protocol is very stringent. Basically I leaned over and let my arm dangle, and made circles. It was not a feel good event, but not horrible.

    The sling was my friend. It supported my arm and was great because I could not move the arm. And, believe me, you do not want to be making any sudden movements.

    The thing the PT peeps kept pushing was not to do too much. As PT progressed I was SORE, but they never had me do anything that pushed my arm too far. Now, sometimes when the PT person was working my arm, I did ask if they should be doing what they were doing, or I’d let them know that it REALLY hurt. But all of it was to make sure no scar tissue was building up, to move my arm in a few ways that they did not want me trying, etc. Also during PT, they’d explain what they wanted me to do, and I’d say, OK, I’ll try it. Sometimes it was fine, sometime it hurt but helped me move forward, and sometimes it just did not work and we worked on it further down the line.

    ICING is absolutely your friend, especially after surgery. Keep it going! Also, PT at home…do your homework. And, don’t do more than what you are advised to do.

    Also, I’ve found I’m tired! And there have been times that I’ve come home from PT so tired I fall our for about four or so hours! So, REST when you are tired. It helps.

    I slept on a wedge, that helped. I do not think that I could have laid down flat and then get up from that position as I could no longer use my shoulder to help me get up or to scoot around on the bed. A few of my friends who have had the surgery stayed in their recliners, slept in their recliners, ate in their recliners! My recliner is not that comfortable!

    Jamie — if you are a male or female all of this next suggestion would work for you, in my opinion. You aren’t going to be able to pull things over your head and put your arms into clothing that way–like t-shirts, etc. Button up the front shirts/pajamas are a must. With your good arm, you’ll first pull the sleeve on the button front shirt onto the affected arm while it is hanging straight at your side, then bring the shirt on around and slip it onto your good arm. Also, pulling pants and undies down and up is not all that easy or quick with one hand, so keep that in mind when you have to visit the potty!

    After a while I found that I could put on a larger T-shirt or top by using my good arm to pull it onto my affected arm as it hung down by my side, then over my head, and then I could slip the good arm into the shirt — but that was probably or 7+ ?? weeks into PT and I was no longer wearing my sling.

    Female — bras — you’d be miserable with that strap on your shoulder. My niece, who had been through this, told me to get some of the men’s tank top t-shirts, aka, “wife beater” t-shirts, in a size much smaller than I wase, and cut the middle of the strap on the affected side. You’ll be able to pull this t-shirt up over your legs with your good arm and slip your good arm into the strap. It is a great alternative to a bra, and made me feel much better going to PT with one on under my button front shirt. I folded the cut strap under and that worked for me.

    Keep in mind this has been my experience. I’m now 13 weeks post surgery!!! Hope something in this note helps!

    Best of luck! LL

    Thanks, LindaLee. Very valuable info, considering I’m going to have to schedule surgery for my left arm soon. I guess I’ll have to go with a wedge too, as I’m prone to sleeping on one side, or the other. I switch a few times each night.

    Ironically, WordPress put this comment in my Spam folder! Maybe that’s why they allowed those three hinky ones. There must have been some kind of hiccup! Fortunately, I saw your comment in my email, and I was able – somehow – to retrieve it from my Spam.

    I wondered if Word Press wouldn’t flag it because it was so long and so off topic. Am glad you saved it Unc! LL

    LindaLee — I’m moved by your spirit of generosity. It’s all vastly informative (and a little intimidating) but at the very least, I now know what to expect from someone with first-hand knowledge, rather than a rote telling from a surgeon.

    I do greatly appreciate the time an effort u expended on my behalf. You’re a kind soul LL.

    All the best to you as well,
    male, sans bra 😉

    It was long, LindaLee, but it wasn’t off topic. I don’t know what kind of algorithms WordPress employs, but flagging yours as spam, while allowing three pretty clearly spam comments through, is a little disconcerting. I’m glad that it was recent enough so I didn’t have to dig too deep into my Spam file, because it can grow to the thousands. I use to clear it myself, but with their changes it is really very cumbersome. — YUR

    It sounds like you’re going through a big challenge and that your arm and shoulder are affected. Are you typing with only one hand, now ?

    I will pray that you get passed this and back to normal. As they say in Corinthians, “This too shall pass.”

  12. 12 LindaLee November 24, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    You are so welcome Jamie! I had a niece who I was able to talk with and who advised and shared her experience with me. It was so helpful. Wishing you all the best! LL

  13. 13 LindaLee November 26, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    LWC, thank you! I was typing with one hand. That was not efficient at all, I kept transposing letters, and just quit typing until I could add the left hand (I am left-handed). It took a while before I was comfortable typing with both hands. My left arm would get vey tired and sore. But, I’m good typing again!! And, I continue to move forward in therapy. LL

    Good luck, in therapy, LindaLee.

    I’ll pray that things get back to normal, soon !
