SOON....


I had surgery to repair my torn subscapularis earlier than originally planned. Last Friday, April Fools Day, I went under the knife. This puts me 3 weeks ahead of schedule! I will be running 3 weeks sooner, uh, walking, 3 weeks sooner is more like it! I thought that 5 days post op would have me power walking the streets, instead, I am power napping in a recliner! This is NOT what I had envisioned. I carry this huge apparatus the Doctor calls a sling, 24-7. Off only to take a shower. This is definitely more than I bargained for, but totally necessary. My sister Shawn, had surgery on her finger the same day. The walking wounded.

All of my racing plans for this season is caput and I am feeling quite trapped. Oh, and typing one handed really sucks, too. But life is GOOD. Soon these legs will be moving forward and I will be planning my next adventure. SOON....

Glad to see you girls have each other to lean on and share stories. haha. It's too bad the story isn't something a little less invasive.

Hope everything goes well with recovery.

Take some much deserved rest. I tried to rush it a bit on my "one year to full recovery" allograft and ended up with a five trip to the freezer ice pack night. It's tough to keep us down. You look happy in the picture!

Glad to hear you got the problem taken care of. So just relax and enjoy your recovery time. It will do you good to have no performance pressure.
