Today I am undergoing shoulder surgery, so I will most likely be out for a few weeks. It appears a lifetime of weightlifting had finally caught up with me! Late last year I’d discovered a tear in a shoulder muscle. It wasn’t a big tear, but enough to feel like a knife digging into me every time I did chest presses. Long story short, I’ve been doing physical therapy since, I no longer feel that stabbing pain, but am also not lifting the weights I used to lift, since I had to significantly modify my workout routine.
There is still something “wrong” in there, and today I am finally going to correct that! Well, the surgeon is. Anyway, that’s where I am today. I will be in a sling the next four to six weeks, I’m told. For the next two, glued to a recliner. So all this kinda prevents any keyboarding…and really, I should not be doing anything but resting and recuperating and tons of physical therapy so I heal properly.
And I’m really looking forward to all this!
This has been a “thing” for almost a year, and I’m tired of thinking about it and working around it every danged day, because there are many daily reminders that something “just ain’t right” in there. It’s always best to correct these kinds of things as early as possible and not allow them to get worse.
So…have a good one, y’all, and I’ll see ya when I’m able to again hit the keyboard!
