Was in town today paying a bill, heading out of the store when I slipped and fell in street. Stuck my hands out to break my fall, hurting my left shoulder. MRI showed I tore the tendon off the bone. Have to have surgery next Monday, and Doc says no moving it for 6 weeks. Gonna be middle of May before he'll let me go back to work. Guess I'll have plenty of time to work on the VAC, one handed that is. LOL. Wife says there's one thing she won't help me with during recovery. Didn't ask what that meant, pretty much got the message the first time.

Mike , I pray all goes well for you. As I recover from prostate surgery the wife watches me like a hawk so I do not do something like lifting more than a milk jug. Get well soon and maybe we can get together.

Just do what the doc tells you to. I broke my collar bone, and 7 ribs on August 26. They told me to do what pain would allow. On January 19th, they put a plate and 10 screws in the collar bone. After 6 months I am finally able to do most things. My shoulder is kinda stiff, and gets sore, but I am making progress.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Hope surgery goes well. We might have a job for a one-armed syrup bottler, here if it ever gets back above freezing. HeHe

We pay a couple of Amish lads, $10.oo/hr., to collect sap, but since you only have use of one arm, I guess your wage would have to be $5.oo., and we would have to find someone else to screw the cap on. HeHe

Sorry to hear of your accident, hope the surgery goes well for you.
When I was a senior in high school our basketball coach fell off a balcony and broke both wrists. His wife then immediately divorced him. Apparently there were things she wouldn't do either LOL Don

Hope all goes well. I know what your going thru. A few years ago I fell off a roof and dislocated my shoulder. Several weeks for rehab. No surgery on my part . I did tear down a steel building at that time , also with one arm. It was quite a job , it was a 28x40 structure. Good luck.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
