Yes, it’s true; I am still out of work. What is up with that?, you ask. Well, I still have significantly reduced mobility in my neck. It is better, as it was 5% and is now 20-25%.
The exciting news is that I have a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder. I don’t know how this happened. I was doing a lot of upper body exercises and using giant rubber bands in PT. The shoulder started to hurt more than usual.
Since I had a referral for the left shoulder over 2 years ago, I decided to have both shoulders looked at. After all, I have time to do that. Both shoulders have bone spurs–arthritis. The right one turned out to have a tear.
So, I’m going to have surgery, and will be out the rest of the year. I will stay positive, and hope for less painful shoulders, and more mobility, ultimately, in my neck.
The best part of having some time is I get to write and make crazy photos with Photoshop. I have a new book nearing completion, and I’m trying to get it done before I lose most of my right arm usage. It’s going to be a very close deadline.
Enjoy the poem below from the new book, A Redhead Looks At 60.
Have a blessed day,
