Don's Shoulder

As most of you know Don fell a couple months ago and hurt his shoulder. MRI showed a tear in the tendon and bone spur. His orthopedist felt exercise and a cortisone shot should help and wanted to see him in a couple months. All was improving until end of April when we went to Laughlin. He got up one morning and could not raise his arm to his waist, when we returned home he called the orthopedist and went in and was told yes you will need surgery but we need a release from you medical and/or cardiologist. Medical doctor was on vacation till 15th, saw him then cardiologist, new stress test, rest test etc and he finally goes back to orthopedist on Thurs. We know he has to be off Plavix for a week so will find out where and when Turs. (Somewhere Don got the idea it would be arthroscopic but yesterday when he was talking to nurse she said she doubted it very much).
I got back Sunday June 1 from a week with Autumn in Bisbee, Chris and Patrick were in Seattle. She had just gotten home about 2pm May 26th from Toronto, Canada and they left Tuesday 27th at 8am to go to airport in Tuscon to fly to Seattle. Autumn and I had lots of fun and I had my first try at Sushi...it was okay and I will try it again (stayed with veg and shrimp, crab).
Today I am going to a Linus Project to help make quilts. It is a group I sewed with this spring and was invited to join the Yuma group.
Will report more after doctor appt. Thursday.
