Ok… so not my best end of year, medically. Thanksgiving week I had both my knees ‘scoped. Christmas week I had my right shoulder ‘scoped.
The shoulder, she’s a screamin’ All sorts of pain. Oh the suffering… the sweet, sweet suffering.
The shoulder hurts about 100 times worse than the knees. Apparently, and I’m not a doctor, but trust me on this, every move a human being makes has some sort of shoulder-related motion associated. Every human move. Couple this with pretty much the loss of motion in the oh-so-important right hand, and you have a real humdinger of a problem on your hands. No pun intended.
So when me and the misses take off the gauze, I have FIVE holes in my shoulder. Three in a row on the front, one sort of off to the side on the front, and one on the back, near the top. WTF? FIVE!? I thought it was supposed to be 3?! Check this out:
That’s not me. That’s some other poor dope who got short-changed with only THREE incisions. Hah! Dumbass! I got the DELUXE 5-HOLE treatment! Yee haw! My doctor got some ‘splainin’ to do!
So, sure, it slowed the writing (along with just about everything else in my life) down to a crawl and, no, I didn’t finish The Disciple. In fact, it now haunts me. But that’s OK. While the script has limped forward, the notes have leaped forward. So, revised ETA, end-o-January. Suck it Trebek!
Hollywood is shaking off its holiday slumber. Some folks are back to work. Those that aren’t will be back next week. Good news for me and VENTURE is the dry ink on the RELATIVITY -> ROGUE deal. Read more about that here.
