WHEW!!!! I'm finally seeing the light at the end of a LONG shoulder surgery tunnel. It was about what they told me it would be. Painful with an extended recovery period. And they were right. They "they" I refer to are the rock solid health pros at the U.W. Man, they know their stuff. And they never once called me a big baby, although at times I fear I acted like one. It's not to say I'm through this. The normal recovery time for what I had done is about six months. Meaning I'll have to put off trying to qualify for the PGA tour until next year. No kayaking this summer either. I was able to get my garden in single handedly. And I mean that literally. Actually I have to thank my two kids....BJ and Lizzy for all their help in the usual yard chores that come with spring. And without a big helping hand from my friend Steve, the garden thing would never have happened. Sign me, rehabbing.
