A suggestion about the arm: wrap a towel around the elbow and either tape or ace wrap that. It will be wide enough to stay at the elbow (hopefully) and also hopefully will remain pretty cool. Because of the width it will help keep you from bending your arm and yet you can move it. You could instead use two hand-towels whatever works best tp give soft resistance to bending.

At our hospital, we have quilted medical wide cloth bands for the children to keep them from bending arms to try to remove ventilator tubes or NG tubes, etc. We call them “no-no”s because it sounds kinder than restraints.

It is so cool about the deer and your frequent reminders that life is good.
