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.

Sorry to hear about the injury, Donna. Take the time you need for recovery and let your brain go into overdrive for idea percolating. You'll have saved up so many good ideas that when you do get back to it, you'll stay very busy churning out some great stuff.

Good luck with the surgery, recovery, and follow-up PT.
