Was she trying to curl a big barbell or something?
It probably began when there was a basement flood two weeks ago and she lifted boxes with family photos to save them. But the final straw was something minor - lifting something relatively light while twisting to the side. There was instant, excruciating pain and by the next morning, heavy bruising and swelling along with the pain. She is doing pretty well with one arm and had the pain under control when I left around noon today but it came back tonight. :( She meets a surgeon on Monday but it will probably settle down on its own over a number of weeks although it won't be restored to its initial condition, I don't think. There will be lots of physio.
