Shoulder Update

The surgery is complete, everything went smoothly (from my perspective, and from the doctor's perspective), I've had a somnambulant weekend on painkillers, and now it's more or less back to reality; that new reality being that I've got an arm in a sling for the next month, and daily physical therapy exercises for the next six months or so.

I am happy to report that I am in fact functionally ambidextrous, so eating, writing, shaving, etc. with my left hand is going smoothly (if a little slower) and improving. After all, what's the point of having the adventure if you can't enjoy these little challenges along the way?

Thank you everyone who wrote with well wishes! It was great going into the surgery knowing I was in your hearts and minds.
