    Well at 11:15am eastern time, I will be at the hospital, getting checked in for my surgery.

    Surgery, Left Shoulder Total Joint Replacement, is set for 1:15 pm.

    I will let the OAF bunch know how it went, when I can.

    If by chance I don't make it out of this, you guys are the best.:wavey:

    Good on ya for getting it taken care of!

    I put my torn labrum off for years. As a consequence, my over all health declined, I gained 40 pounds and felt like crap!

    I finally went in right after turkey day last year, did all the rehab, lost the 40 lbs, walking upright and can reach into the back seat of the car with zero pain!

    Good luck and do ALL of your rehab~

    They can rebuild him. Make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster. Genttlemen, they have the technology to make the first bionic Dinky.

    Well, I have been home for a few days. Doing well, get staples out next Thursday and then can start rehab. Pain in the joint is gone, just have some incision site pain but the Oxycontin and Percocet have taken care of that. Am wearing a sling that restricts movement but I can take it off if I am just sitting and don't move the shoulder, but I can move my lower arm to keep it from getting stiff.
    Thanks everyone, for the good thoughts....:wavey:
