At The Hospital

Good morning!

Today I’m up in Los Angeles having Surgery #10.

I wrote this post using dictation on my laptop.

I wanted to practice before I lost the use of my hand.

My arm will be in a sling for an unknown number of weeks after surgery.

I will be using a dictation app to update you on how I’m doing.

I don’t think (?) I will be able to add any photos to my posts for a while.

I hope you will forgive any errors made by the dictation app.

I’m not sure how often I will be able to give updates.

I’m hoping I only spend one night at the hospital.

If that’s the case, I’ll try to give another update post surgery once I’m back home/awake.

My doctor decided last week, to only operate on my shoulder and upper arm today.

I was a little bummed-out because I wanted my elbow tear fixed at the same time.

But, I realize the medical reasons why my doctor did not feel this was in my best interest.

Today’s surgery is the more major event and I will get over this hurdle first.

He feels in about two months, I’ll (hopefully) be ready to have the elbow tendon tear fixed.

Of course, the recovery for both will depend on how much they end up doing to me once they’re inside my arm fixing things.

In any case, I’ll try to dictate, and post, a short update as soon as I’m able to.

In the meantime, if you have any suggestions on books to read and/or TV shows/movies to watch, I’d love to hear them.

    Sending healing prayers to you and hopes for a speedy recovery. Shows to watch-hopefully you have saved House of Cards for your down time, The Man in the High Castle on Amazon is really good as well-based on a best selling book. Did you ever watch either Bloodline or Rectify on Netflix? Both excellent.

    Speedy recovery to you! I just read “Take Me With You” for our online book club and we all enjoyed it. Netflix binge opportunities include Orange Is The New Black, Narcos, The Killing, Nurse Jackie. If you like any of those, let me know. Netflix is how I make myself go to the gym. I’m just not sure what you’d like.

    “My Brilliant Friend” google it for more info, first of four books in a series. Author uses a pseudonym, no one knows her identity. Excellent read. I am currently awaiting the second in the series to be delivered.
