This Damned Shoulder.....

Just when I'm feeling good again, the clutz in me comes out! I slipped and fell in a big puddle of water (for the record, that wasn't my fault, and water on ceramic tile = trouble!). Fell on my ass, but stupid me, tried to catch myself. Just force of habit, I guess. I felt ok, until about 5 hours into my shift at the Red Cross, and my shoulder (the bad one) started stiffening up....badly. Left early for the ER.

On a positive note, it's not dislocated, separated or broken. On a negative note, it's sore as hell, and any further damage to the rotator cuff is undetermined. I can't go back to the Cross until I'm realized by a doc, so I'm on vacation right now. And I'm supposed to be back at the restaurant tonight, but I still have my arm in a sling. So I really don't think that's going to happen. I really need the money the restaurant provides. I'm losing daily right now....so a few words of good things my way might help me out just a bit!! A little mojo is never a bad thing!! Thanks, guys!

I have 3 reviews to write. At least I can still type!!

Wish you well. I'm sending all sorts of healing thoughts and vibes and mojo and hugs (but not the kind that make your shoulder throb).

I am so very sorry! I pray for a quick recovery. It sucks getting hurt as we get older because we feel it more! Wish we could always maintain the resiliency we have as children.
