Tomorrow the rotator cuff and tendons in my right shoulder are undergoing a bit of surgical repair.
I’m pretty sure that a couple of good landings off my horse helped to do the damage but I have ignored it until my right arm is slowly but surely starting not to work very well. So, off to the O.R. we go!
As soon as people learn I am having rotator cuff surgery, they feel compelled to tell me just how bad it will be and how excruciatingly painful. It’s a bit like the horror stories people share with you when they find out you’re pregnant. Who really needs to know that labor can last 36 hours, that heads can be huge and having babies can cause so much pain?
But tell they do. So, I am facing surgery with fear in my heart and sneakers on my feet. Wonder how far I can run in a day?
Anyway, I will be sidelined for a couple of weeks, doing one armed living and wishing I had stayed on the horse instead of sailing over him!
I hope to be back in mid to late March. Until then, I’ll be reading(my favorite Olympic sport) and thinking but not writing. But I will be back!
