Rt Shoulder update: Surgery tomorrow
Dr. Janda had a cancelation and I'm going in for surgery tomorrow. This is arthroscopic surgery involving three small incisions on my shoulder. He'll be fixing the tear and also removing a bone spur that's aggrivating it and preventing healing. It's an outpatient procedure which is expected to take about 3 hours.

I'll be unconcious for the surgery itself but he said I get to take home a video. :)

I'll be off work until Tuesday and then it's art fair so I'll have to be disciplined about not overstraining it at work, but I'll be able to move it and use it the next day, I'm just restricted from raising the arm above my shoulder for 7-10 days.

There are many theories about what I'll do during my time off. Most likely is that I'll sleep and read and watch movies, but lord knows I've got at least 24 hours of work to do for ConFusion, SFOHA, the washtenaw county democrats, and AWC, so maybe I'll peck away at that a bit.

I do want to read more hugo nominees, so that's a priority. Over vacation I did start on Campbell Nominee Karin Lowachee, and I recommend her first two novels. There are a few places where she takes far too many words to tell you something, but the books are pretty worthwhile.

I'll also be having a concom meeting Saturday and a SFOHA meeting Sunday.

Bill is right: I'm not very good at doing nothing.

You don't have to do "nothing", just make sure you listen to what your body tells you it needs. Good luck tomorrow!

Hugs. Be careful -- it's really hard to not use an arm, unless it is in a cast, and even then, you'll try.

Good luck with the surgery and recovery.

Good luck with the surgery.

Also, thanks for the warning about Art Fair. I might try working from home next week. :-)

Good news and good wishes. Do the kind of "nothing" that works for you, and don't strain your arm!!

That's okay. You don't have to juggle fire for 24 hours if you don't want to.

Good luck with your surgery and the possible boredom complications!

There will be some interesting proofreading coming your way right about as you get home from surgery. It's the "fit it in if you can" July proofreading; we still have you on tap for the August stuff.

May the surgery go well and your recovery be complete, leading to much joy in movement for decades to come!

Thanks! Let's get acquainted (if we aren't already; LJ usernames and profiles sometimes throw me off) and I'll gladly keep you in mind for future projects.
