Hi, everyone! I'm about to start writing a romance in which my protagonist has recently been shot in the shoulder. The bullet entered, it exited, it didn't hit anything vital, so no surgery and no complications. It was done with a handgun during a mugging. I haven't worked out what calibre or the exact path of the bullet, a) because I don't think my readers need to know and b) because I hope it means I have wriggle room for the rest of my ideas to be plausible. First of all, I'm wondering how long she'd stay in hospital for -- would they even bother to keep her in overnight? Or just stitch her up and send her on her way? Secondly, I'm wondering how much it would affect her. One-two weeks later the story begins properly, with her returning to her family home and converting it into a guest house. Mostly, she'll be staying away from the heavy lifting, but she may get involved with some wallpaper-stripping and painting. Is this feasible a few weeks after the injury I've described? I've tried doing some research, but I'm not really getting much of an idea other than 'maybe', so I was wondering if anyone here had a better idea considering the specific circumstances.
