"Trump should cheer Ruth up by visiting her in the hospital and telling some jokes."

Apparently she's "working from home" ... I didn't know they could do that.

Setting aside my extreme distaste for judicial activists such as RBG ... if I live to be 85 (and I hope I don't) I'd like to be able to keep working at that age if I want to. My grandfather retired at 65 and then basically just spent 20 years waiting to die. That's an entire season of life that I don't want to experience.

I may have said this before: I want to die at 52, but I want to have unlimited 5-year extensions.

Checkup this morning... but nowhere near early enough for me.

I want to drink some coffee right now, but I feel I should wait until after the checkup. Similarly, breakfast.

The checkup, however, isn't until 8am.

I woke up at 2am (not unusual for me). I'm already at work, trying to bend my mind to focus on this work, and not really wanting any of it right now.

I had shoulder surgery last week. Went very well. Back to the doctor today who had me chuck the sling already. I can't really lift any weight, but my movements are only limited by pain. PT 3 times a week. Should be good as new this summer.

I had dislocated it badly as a teenager. Time caught up.

The way the doctor described things in there, there was tons of damaged tissue which was removed and they did a repair to small tear. Also shaved two bones that had calcium growths.

I've had shoulder issues since I was 16, so if this repair is as good as they say, I may be pain free for the first time in nearly 35 years.

If memory serves, you said you didn't do the PT when you were 16 because you thought you felt fine at the time. PT is a nuisance but it sure does work.
Glad to hear the repair went well. Soon you'll be able to bench press a jumbo jet again.

Dang.. That explains it.. I've been having shoulder issues starting the past week or so.. I think someone sent me Ragnar's shoulder.

Yeah, they had to cut out a lot of old dead tissue, which was probably from the earlier dislocation.

And Aahz - feel my pain!

I suppose there's a black market for dead tissue somewhere. Maybe in the zombie dark web or something.
