Thanks for the prayers. Tuesday’s surgery went well as far as Dr. Weinstein is concerned. He repaired my rotator cuff and also fixed a tear in my biceps. The procedure was arthroscopic so I’ll have no scars to show off, just two pin holes.
The doc’s been right about the post op pain—it’s intense between pills. I trust he will also prove accurate about the healing process. I’ll be in a sling for six weeks and start physical therapy next Thursday. Hopefully I’ll recover the full range of motion in four-to-six months.
Sleeping—or trying to—in a recliner is the worst. My heart goes out to people who have to do it every night like my sister-in-law Linda. It’s like being a conductor on a night train, with stops at 11:44, 12:47, 1:55, 3:07, 4:15 and 7:00.
My goal for now, a good night’s sleep.
