Broken Shoulder

I broke my shoulder Labor Day weekend water skiing. It was much worse than they could see on MRI. I tore almost all the cartilage off the ball, tore the front and back of my labrum away from the bone, and frayed my bicep tendon too. They took out the chunks from my joint, reattached labrum (socket) and punctured my upper arm bone to help stimulate new cartilage growth.

It may be a long recovery -- I probably won't be back in to the office until Tuesday, December 1st.‬‪ Good thing I have health insurance and a job.
