It took a REALLY long time, but the yak from Mongolia finally arrived, bearing gifts for my arm! Silliness aside, it really did take forever for the compression sleeve to arrive. It was originally ordered in mid-October, and I got it about 2 weeks later. Sadly, it was too long, which meant I had lots of wrinkles . .. not good in a compression garment. I returned it and ordered the shorter one shortly before Thanksgiving. Fast forward THREE MONTHS, and the sleeve finally arrived. Totally ridic! Anyway, I used it for the first time on Sunday when I was raking up the leaves. It feels a little weird, makes my arm cool, but hopefully will keep lymphedema at bay.
And, a pic. Stylish, right? 😀
