Concrete is hard. Damned hard.

I popped out of the truck three days ago, hit a patch of ice, bounced my back off the running board and landed on the shoulder that I had injected with a steroid four days prior (severe arthritis). I've had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders several years ago.

Yesterday, primary care office.

Possible ligament tear.
Possible muscle tear.
Possible dislocation fracture.
Possible tendon stretch or tear.
Possible rotator cuff tear.

What's next? Exercise the shoulder by walking my hand up a wall and stretching the shoulder to strengthen it.

MRI and referral to an orthopedic surgeon if it doesn't get better.

I'm too old for this stuff. shake

Man I’m sorry, that blows. I no how that feels just had my rotator surgery a month ago and it still hurts. Hopefully you’ll bounce back pretty quickly.

Clearly you're not spending enough time on Chit Chat, or none of this would have happened. Going outside? *raspberries*

Nah, a real case of Michigan would've involved a lead pipe.

When I play concrete, I bring a jackhammer.


It's about 50-50...

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.
