Stack the cats

No! No! Ouchie! Not me! Me either! That black, purple, blue, green, and brown arm isn't going on us! Momma gave him a feather pillow from the bed to put his arm on. Pawpaw is moving it, a little bit. The doctor gave him some exercises where he bends over and hangs the arm straight down. By moving his body a little the arm swings back and forth and around in a circle. It is called The Pendulum. It is fun to watch.
Maybe he could stack the cats and use them as a pillow.
Who knew that fluids built up in the lowest joint of a broken could weigh as much as 8 pounds for a gallon?
It seems that a lot of Pawpaw's pain is from fluids trapped in his elbow. The human vet wants him to elevate his arm, like on a pillow. He has been holding it in the sling, down and close to his body. That made the elbow the lowest part of the arm. Now it hurts like @#$# if he tries to move it away from his body. How is he going to prop it up on a pillow?
