Looks Like Monday the 15th Will be The Big Day....
.....to get my right shoulder fixed. I had a visit with my doctor's assistant yesterday to discuss the particulars. The surgery will take about 2-2.5 hours, depending on what they find in there. It will be an arthroscopic procedure, not a joint replacement. I will have to wear a sling for about 6 weeks, and get physical therapy during that time. Once I am out of the sling, I can resume light physical activities, but the assistant told me it could take up to 6 months for a total recovery, and that includes no motorcycle riding. THAT pissed me off!! Having to go through all spring and half the summer without riding is going to be tough. The shoot and my annual trek to Johnson City afterwards will definitely be out of the question, and possibly my trip to Maggie Valley, NC too. I can only hope that because of my gym routine, that maybe I will be physically ready sooner than the average person that does not work out. If I can't make the shoot but can travel to Maggie Valley, maybe I can work in a trip to see Jerry and Mary while I'm up that way, if they have the time and inclination.
