It's taken awhile to get to this point. I tried everything I could think of to fix my shoulder of ranging from the reasonable to the hokey. Ultimately I decided that elective surgery was the necessary route to take in order to have the chance to regain the strength and ability I once had so that I could compete in weightlifting and play catch. Well, Tuesday came and went. I reported to the surgery center at 6:30 AM and was wheeled into the operating room about an hour later. The next thing I remember was mumbling to the nurse watching me in the resting area about grommets on shoes - which is a total Goff dialogue...
Leading up to the operation I kept reminding myself that recovery begins as soon as the doctor stitches me up. I realized yesterday that mending is a long and patient process. I'm going to have my arm in a sling for a couple weeks, going to need several months worth of physical therapy too. Normally this commitment to slow progress would drive me nuts, but instead I have found something resembling peace and order. I'm actually looking forward to charting a course that will take me from Day 0 to a weightlifting PR. At present I miss coaching and working out at CF 818, but I'm smiling in the picture below because it will all come back soon and will definitely be worth it!
