Harry, good luck with the shoulder surgery

Are you having open surgery or an arthroscopy?

I had an arthroscopy 3 months ago on my shoulder...it takes some time to heal...up to 12 months fully...and lots of theraband exercises

I too went to a Private Hospital but we had to fork out the money....but it is the way to go if you can afford it

thanks k,it's a "arthroscopic sub-acrominal decompression + cubital tunnel release" they say!!
had a load of screws/plastic put in there about 35 years ago...bankarts procedure...to stop it dislocating & to allow me to keep playing rugby.that's fine still but the shoulder is knackered.will have the shoulder joint replaced in 3/5 years time.
this procedure is keyhole as was yours so no stitches required...just pressure pads.should only be in a sling for three days,bit of physio then back on the pitch...not!!
coulda got it done free on nhs but would have had to wait a few weeks,the food ain't as good & the nurses aren't as pretty!!
would have paid if it wasn't for corporate healthcare,so i ain't complaining k!!

I need to practice making those whipped cream blobs. I decorated with mint leaves because they look like the lemon balm that the recipe uses for decoration and I don't have any.

If you think my whipped cream blobs are funky, have a look at this photo from my Danish cookbook, Mesterkokkens Store Kogebog.

That is what I had H the arthroscopic sub-acrominal decompression. He ended up fixing about 5 issues I had in my shoulder...one being impingement.

I hope it all goes smoothly, I am sure it will

You will be right with the pretty nurses and good food

Is yours a day surgery or are you in overnight?

Glad to hear that you are getting the deluxe treatment with the shoulder surgery, Harry. I'm sending some healing vibes in your direction. Be sure to do the physio religiously.

Thanks everyone. It is tasty. Msmofet, I still have to work out the details on that recipe. It's from a Danish recipe that uses gelatin sheets, so I have to figure out the right amount of gelatin powder. It was a little bit softer than I like. It has grated lemon rind. I have to figure out how to get the oomph of the lemon rind without little bits being obvious when eating the dessert. After I get it right with the raw eggs (gotta make some more very soon, while I still have those safe raw eggs), I'll work on making it with home pasteurized egg yokes and whites.

I accidentally made a bit of butter on the first go of making the whipped cream blobs. I got some 40% cream at the health food store and it turned to butter quicker than the 35% stuff from the supermarket does. Oh well, I now have about 3 tablespoons of organic, unsalted butter.

I use a fine microplane to zest my lemons for pies and breads. Works great.

I will be looking for the recipe but if you could PM me the link when you do just in case I miss it. Thanks.

I have never made homemade butter but have come close several times. LOL I like stiff homemade whipped cream.
