Please Keep A Good Thought…

…or pray, if that’s what you do.

Judy, my roommate, dear friend, and exgf, goes in for shoulder surgery this morning @ 0800.  She is having a badly torn rotator cuff repaired.  It seems 30+ years of doing hair has taken it’s toll!

Thanks to everyone’s generosity, she has a number of things to make her recovery a little less painful.  The lift chair, which is normally my domain in the living room, needed it’s controller replaced.  Having use of one arm means she now needs it, at least temporarily.  The surgeon wants her to sleep in it.  And an ice jacket, which is placed over the shoulder with circulating ice water, will hopefully lessen her pain.

We would not have been able to afford either of these things without your kind help.

Thank you again!

Well, off to the hospital!

PS – Judy was very moved by your comments and emails, and thanks you!

PPS – She made it through the surgery quite well (we have pictures!).  A prognosis is for a complete recovery!

  1. Judy, we speak a speedy healing & complete recovery, in Jesus’ name. And may the Lord guide the hands of the surgeon, as well. Amen!

  4. Prayers and best wishes for her.

    The surgery is the easy part…..tell her not to be afraid of using the happy pills for the rehab. 🙂

  5. Had my left shoulder done a few years ago and going to have my right shoulder done soon. More wrong there than the cuff so rehab was the worse part.

    I hope she uses the pain meds rather than toughing through it. Prayers going her way.

  6. Luck and prayers. The first few days after major surgery suck because some damn fool cut you up with a knife. But it gives you a new perspective once it gets better. Better becomes BETTER.
