I'm sorry for your injury and the detour of your plans.

Man plans and God laughs.

Oh no, get well soon. Keep us informed in case you need something during recovery.

Sorry to hear about the accident and hope the repair goes well.

Now, to the important stuff, I really want to hear how the 6.5 Creedmore performs. Big Grin

Well I got to see The Mob with my daughter last night at The National in Richmond, VA. It was planned before the shoulder got FUBAR'd.

Im still bummed over Red Rocks.

If my surgery is the 18th, do you guys think driving 3,200 miles (round trip, solo) for a concert on the 28th is a bad idea? After all the new car has working A/C. Smile



Nice is overrated

And people wonder why I carry a SIG P320

Yep but ask your doctor. I screwed up my shoulder a week ago, jerking the steering wheel as someone was backing up without looking. Lifelong problems can be avoided by following instructions in great detail.

In a couple of hours I am heading to surgery to (hopefully) repair it.

The ortho said the procedure should be arthroscopic, but like all docs hedged that with a but we may have to slice you open like a walrus carcass...

Here's to hoping its arthroscopic, and successful.

P•ost-surgury update

Took longer than expected but all of the work was done arthroscopically.

Some of the damage apparently was not new, likely from my 1982 or 1985 motorcycle accidents.

The surgeon and put me on a longer of zero activity with my left arm, which sucks.

The post anesthesia hangover has already started.
More tomorrow
__________________________________

Four weeks ago I lost my balance when installing a ground-spiked solar light to mark the edge of the driveway.

A small thing, one might think. Fall, get up, dust yourself off, and motor on.

Nope. Not moi.

I lost my balance on the edge of the drainage ditch that runs across the front of my property. It's not much of a ditch, perhaps 18" deep, with the place were I was standing another 12-16" above the top of the ditch.

So out I go, with a push trying to clear the 24" wide ditch.

Lacking sufficient velocity I crash into the far edge, about which I pivoted, slamming my left shoulder into the pavement, full force. It hurt. A lot. As in my first thought was I'd broken the head of my humerus.

Turns out I have a double, full thickness tear of the rotator cuff, with a torn biceps tendon to boot.

I have surgery in two weeks to repair the lot.

But the injury and surgery isn't why I post this lament, it's what I'm missing as a result.

I am going to miss seeing The Glitch Mob at Red Rocks Ampitheater in Colorado. I am also not going to get to drive up to Wyoming the next day to shoot my 6.5 Creedmore AR-10 while spending my limited vacation time under the starry skies because I'm not to fly until mid-July, and not to shoot pistols, rifles, or shotguns left handed (which I am) until the end of September at the earliest.

All from putting a solar light in.

FUCK!
