    Thanks, and Yes -- much better

    Healing thoughts coming your way.
    I took a bad smack from the ocean, stupidly tried to bodysurf a tall wave in short water. Right now, the pain is mild, and dissipating. I've never been so happy to get ER treatment After 5 weeks, I was well enough to carry 4 bags to the airport (incl. Tri-Star and Aeronaut), trying not to get cocky and therefore regress.

    Tom's is a lot harder to get over -- actual surgery, rather than just getting parts yanked back into alignment

      The most important is that you and Tom take the time to heal properly so that you both get back to using those shoulders 100% and don't hurt any longer.

        Given Tom's injury I wonder if we will see a new Tom Bihn Absolute Shoulder Sling in Crimson/Steel/Black? With all that time staring at his mending wing I am guessing he has probably redesigned an ultimate support system multiple times in his head. Having gone through four shoulder surgeries myself (way too much baseball), I completely understand what he is going through. Take care and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

          No new slings, but Tom has concluded that he will perform his next shoulder surgery himself.
          Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

            As an aspiring occupational therapist (if I get into grad school I will be one!) I've been learning a lot about orthopedic surgeons and the crazy things they recommend. If it looks like Tom needs more surgery, I've got a great OT to recommend to visit for a second opinion (she's in Seattle). Surgeons like to cut, but sometimes all the patient needs is some structural integration to get things working again.
            Proud owner of an Aeronaut (indigo), Med. Cafe (steel, indigo), mini organizer (blue), med. organizer (cork), larger organizer (cork). Always thinking about what to get next.
