The shoulder surgery went well, or at least that’s what Tom told me the doctor said. I was out cold for the post-op visit. It was an outpatient procedure, so I was home just before 8 PM last night, and the late hour was only because my surgery time was bumped to the afternoon. Because I couldn’t have anything to eat or drink after midnight the night before, I had a mighty big caffeine headache by the time they took me in. Of course, I wasn’t feeling that too much by the time they brought me out.
Although I had previously speculated that
the staff the woman behind the curtain at Blog This Mom! would be on hiatus while the founder, president, CEO, CFO, and COO I’m down to one hand, it appears that I can in fact type with both hands! Mwah ha ha! It could be the Vicodin, but really, my post-op right shoulder doesn’t hurt nearly as bad as the pre-op caffeine headache. It does hurt some, but not enough to keep me from reading and commenting at least, so I’m looking forward to spending some some quality time with OPBs (Other People’s Blogs) in the next few days.
Anyway, I’m in a sling and rigged up to some sort of
dominatrix costume Cold Therapy contraption. Meanwhile, until I decide whether or not to upload the digital video of my surgery to YouTube (seriously, the surgeon gave me one), I will leave you with a pre-op photo. The surgeon told me that he’s never operated on the wrong extremity, but he asks all of his patients to mark the correct shoulder. So I did.
