    please pray for Raggedyann - she's having surgery this morning - UPDATE, post 60, 91

    Raggedyann is having revision of a previously done total shoulder joint this morning at 11:30. She didn't really have a stellar outcome from the first TSR done in 2008 in terms of ROM and function. the previous joint is failing now – glenoid component is loose and the rotator cuff is irreparable/nonexistent at this point. Quite a bit of pain with even minimal use of the arm. today's procedure is a REVERSE shoulder. neither of us are looking forward to it but there is no other option. Perhaps worse of all, she's a southpaw and the LEFT side is the involved side. She will be totally immobilized for several weeks and then gradually progressed to PT and rehab which will take a lot of time and effort. Typically recovery from rotator cuff repair takes the better part of a year. I expect that this is going to be at least that long. for at least the first third of that year I'll be doing everything I typically do to maintain these 90 acres and the vast majority of what she'd always done as well - including cooking laundry etc.

    I haven't been around much lately and I wanted to let everyone know that I'll be pretty scarce here - probably more like non existent for a while – possibly through very late summer. this is why.

    please pray for Raggedyann; she's going to need it – specifically, please pray for a better outcome from this procedure that she had from the fist. I ask for your prayers too - for patience - something I have in NEGATIVE quantities.

    many thanks

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    Prayers for divine guidance for all. Recently met someone who had the reverse done. He had a better experience than the original procedure.

    Absolutely! Recovering from shoulder injury myself - might want to order some of Summer's Oil for the pain? I'm using it daily and find it really (REALLY) helps.

    The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace .

    Prayers for both of you.

    I have a REVERSE shoulder and have no problems compared to others I've talked to with who had regular replacement. First three months were hard doing the exercises. I'm probably 95%-98% functional with the REVERSE shoulder. I pray Raggedyann has a great outcome.

    It may sound strange, doing dishes by hand is great exercise. The circular motion of the hand while washing dishes actually gets the circular motion of the shoulder moving without a lot of stress.

    Hello Raggedyman,

    Praying for her surgeon for an excellent job for her.

    Praying for a complete recovery.

    Have two friends who had this particular surgery with excellent recovery and use of their arm.

    Praying that Raggedyann has no complications and an excellent outcome.

    Praying for peace and comfort for all and to get Raggedyann home soon to start recovery.

    So thankful this particular surgery is available - its been a real godsend for many!

    Thanking and praising God for watching over Raggedyann!
