I gave birth to my awesome baby girl on Oct 2, 2012. well when she was 3 weeks old we were on our way home for the doc and a drunk driver hit my truck. we was not hurt well she wasn't. we went to the hospital to get look at anyways because i would rather be safe then sorry. they said we was fine. well two days later i went to pick my daughter up and felt a pop in my shoulder and my whole left side went totally numb i couldn't feel it at all. i went to the er and they said it was a pinched nerve. gave me some meds and sent me home. 2 weeks later it was still hurting me so i went to see me doc and she did x-rays and said it was dislocated and NOT TO LIFT ANYTHING even my daughter (she not but maybe 10 lbs now) and so here it is almost 2 months sense the wreck and its still dislocated and i cant hold my little girl unless I'm sitting and my in-law are taking care of her and i feel so bad like I'm letting her down BC cant play with her or hold her like i want to.

Oh my! Do you have a sling or something for your arm? I would keep my arm in that and just be very careful using one arm to pick her up and stuff.

Aww that sounds awful. But the sooner you get better the sooner you can get back to caring for your babygirl so I would just take their advice and hope for a fast recovery. Feel better soon Hun.
