Well boys and girls, this morning in Ketchikan, the capable folks at Peace hospital will try once more to put Humpty-Dumpty back together, again. A month ago, doing almost nothing, I injured my left shoulder (repaired 10-11 years ago, just before I retired). Turns out I tore loose one of two bicep tendons, leaving my bicep muscle flopping around where my 'guns' oughta be. And it may be that there's additional damage in the shoulder joint itself. This is all, no doubt, a continuing consequence of my full-contact life, but the injury/surgery/rehab part does get old. I don't intend this to come out as complaining as I'm very happy with my life, just not looking forward to doing this part again.
Progress continues on the good ship DavidEllis. The Rs are in the very kind care of the now somewhat famous GGB jammer "Stitches", back in Wrangell. And the ever-lovely Miss Dorothy is here in Ketchikan to do what she does best -- take care of me. Back to Wrangell tomorrow and "Knitty Gritty" heads for Wasilla with the GGBs for a roller derby bout and a visit with IDMT Senior Airman Jordanne Marie Stover.
