Wedding Blogger goes on ‘injured reserve’

Shoulder injury

Shoulder injury

‘Injured reserve’ is sports terminology for ‘out with an injury.’

This morning I’m having shoulder surgery, as I described in a post, three weeks ago. It’s a 3-pronged repair.

  1. Rotator Cuff tear
  2. SLAP tear of the Labrum
  3. Bone spur

This afternoon, I will be in a lot of pain, which will be mitigated by some painkillers (hopefully). I’m told, by people who have gone through this, that the first two weeks are the toughest, from a pain standpoint.

The severity of the injury/repair will determine the rehab and healing period. The standard projection is 6-8 weeks.

The hassle is not so much the pain, as it is that my right arm will be in a sling 24/7. Since I’m right handed, it’s going to be no picnic. Hopefully, I will have remembered to buy some new loafers by the time you read this.

So, if my posts are not quite as frequent or there are a few typos, you’ll know why.

On the positive side, I have my Easy Button close at hand.
