From The Windows To The Walls I’m About To Deck These Halls
My Sunday plans … 🎅🏻
Next week I am getting a “barbatage” done to my injured shoulder and yeah, don’t google it – it’s not pleasant 😬.
Basically, my orthopedic doctor is going to numb my arm up as much as possible, and then jam a large needle into the jelly bean sized calcification that’s inside the tendon in my shoulder, grinding away the joint and the cartilage and the tendon itself. The hope is that it will crush up the calcification, so I can have mobility in my arm again and let me live without excruciating pain anytime I move my shoulder. Then, she’ll give me a shot of cortizone right into my bursa.
Sounds pleasant, doesn’t it?
I’m going to be in a sling for a few days, and then I’m on a lift restriction for the next 6 weeks – nothing more than 5 pounds. Should be a rather interesting wedding I’m shooting next weekend, as well as Thanksgiving …
So, I thought I’d do most of the heavy lifting today and get the house holiday season ready, with the exception of decorating the Christmas tree. I’ll put it up, but we will not decorate until Thanksgiving – I gotta put my foot down somewhere, right!?
