Good thing you went and got that MRI. Surgery . Well, I guess it's the best thing for it. I wish you a speedy and complete recovery and some really good pain meds.

Any idea how you tore it?

Not a clue. The most likely explanation is that there was not single catastrophic event that caused it to go from fine to torn. More likely the result of 'wear and tear' over time with some mundane event making the final tear.

It doesn't hep that I'm right-handed. After surgery I will have mobility from the elbow down. No upper arm/shoulder movement allowed except for PT a month after surgery. I'll basically have my upper arm strapped to my side. That should make for some interesting daily challenges.

Good thing the next Olympics is 3 years away. We were hoping you would lead Team USA in the Kitchenaid Toilet Toss.

I'm not likely to forget it. Everytime I take out the KA, there is a big scar along the top to remind me.

You get showed your MRI's and I have to fight to see my mammograms... asked the tech if she saw the ones from last year, she said, "No!" "Well, I did and I will know if there is something different." Heh, no change!

I see reading farther down you will be having surgery, rooting for you and tossing all kinds of good thoughts your way.
