Broken Wing: Post 1

I'll keep this short and sweet, since you'll be hearing a lot from me in coming months.  I leave my house in about 30 minutes to head to the hospital for rotator cuff surgery, specifically to repair a full-thickness labrum tear as well as a full-thickness supraspinatus tear.  To ease the strain on the labrum in the future, I'll also be having bicep tenodesis, a procedure in which the long head of the bicep is detached from the labrum and anchored to the humerus.  I'll be able to start climbing again in about six months, assuming all goes well.

I figure, why not update regularly on the recovery, since I won't be able to work for a few months?  My loss is your gain.  Actually, I'm looking at it as an upgrade.  This shoulder hasn't been right for a while.  For years it's been about 20% weaker than the other shoulder.  Work just destroys it, and it was a fall on ice at work that finally did it in.

We've got some other big news to share soon, of things I've been working on, and we have a review of the great new "Bam Board" just about ready, so I'll talk to you all again in a week or so, pecking away left handed at my keyboard.
