|The Ultrasling and I will be reunited today! I am not as enthused about the prospect as that exclamation point might imply.|
My shoulder surgery – rotator cuff repair and anterior stabilization – is scheduled for 7:30 this morning. It’s estimated to take two to three hours – which I will never remember, because I’ll be under general anesthesia – and when I wake up in recovery, my right arm will be cradled in the familiar embrace of this contraption.
Barring any complications, I should be back home some time this afternoon. I’ll be off from work for at least two weeks, and I will be keeping constant company with the Ultrasling for the next four to six weeks. A couple of months of physical therapy will start once I’m out of the sling.
If this all works the way it’s supposed to, it’ll be worth it. I think. I’m pretty sure.
