I'm Home

Well I am home from having surgery this morning.  Ihad to be there by 7 thid morning but by the time you check you in and do all the stuff they need to do before surgery I would guess it was 8:30 by the time it started.

It was what I had hoped where the Dr. didn't have to repair the rotator cuff muscle.  He removed the arthritic flex joint at the end of the collar bone, cleaned out the arthritis from the ball and socket,then had to break loose some frozen shoulder bits.  This was all done with 3 tiny half inch incisions.

I guess the surgery took about an hour and a half,was awake by 10 and they sent me home aroun noon.

I am typing this on my "smart phone" since my right arm can't reach the keyboard on either computer.

Since I had no stitches in the muscle I am todo some moving of that arm already today.  Dr. F wants me to hang the arm down,bend over at the waist and rorate it.

My thumbs are tired of typing..."talk" to you later.
