self portrait...

how is it i flew
 through 50
51 not so much...
.
my shoulder has been in pain for the past few months. i felt it rip one day this winter when i was lifting sarah's wheelchair out of the car.  i complained.  alot. i was taking more over the counter pain relievers than one probably should. yet, i did nothing else.  until last night.  as luck would have it, i fell on a sidewalk monday night, going into joann's of all places, and landed directly on the same shoulder.  then the pain started shooting up into my neck. i still wanted to pretend nothing was wrong.  until tj asked me what i would do if i was alone with sarah and she needed my help. ouch...that stung worse than the shoulder pain.  only because he was right. son's you gotta love how they tell it like it is. so off i went to urgent care.  the good news is nothing is broken. the not so good news is he suspects soft tissue damage.  in the meantime, i get to wear this stylish sling for a few days. the crazy thing...after wearing this for just one day...my shoulder feels better already.

If I look that good when I am 51, I will be seriously delighted...

I'm sorry your shoulder hurts!

Whatever you're doing to retain eternal youth, you should sell that at the store, too. :)

Love,

Sometimes when you are speeding along ,life gives you a speed bump. Hope your shoulder responds to treatment. I suppose they didn't have a purple sling! Take it from me , older equipment works fine, but it requires more maintenance.
