Surgery Thursday

Hey everyone! Been a while!!! Tomorrow (Thursday, July 7th) I have surgery to remove the awesome metal that held my bones together while they healed up.  I am VERY excited to have the metal OUT!  I will be able to use my (dominant) Left arm again! I have been totally amazed at myself as a…

An update on my condition

Hi everyone Thanks for your patience with the silence.  It has been a tough week. Physical Update: I hurt.  Stuff is broken.  My head is fuzzy.  But I am improving slowly.
