My Christmas Present

Guess what I'm getting for Christmas? Shoulder surgery! I have a torn rotator cuff, the muscle has separated and pulled back from the tendon and bone, and I have another small muscle fissure at the front of the shoulder.

Just got the news yesterday afternoon from my ortho. I'll be looking at a 12 week recovery, with the first 2 weeks completely immobilized. Won't even be able to write my name (yes, it is my right hand).

I was pretty down yesterday, I imagine that would be expected. But today is a new day, and I will get through this. I believe that things happen for a reason - don't know why this one - but I will make it through this and come out on the other end even better.
