Dammit! This has become my signature injury…

Took a fall yesterday during evening walkie. I have now officially screwed up both shoulders twice.

This doesn’t feel as bad as the last one almost exactly seven years ago which took years to more or less heal. But you couldn’t have convinced me of that last night. Did the morning walkie without the sling and then put it on when we got home because the shoulder really started aching.

Just when I need to be thinking of cutting firewood, too…

    Join the crowd. I have more metal within me as well as things removed. I believe it is my destiny.

    What do you have on your belt there? Looks plastic and not large frame revolverish. Something new?

  3. Snazzy looking autopistol youve got there. Details?

  4. Joel says:

    Not new and not mine, just borrowed for a while.

    Joel, dude, please stop doing this fall-down-go-boom $#!t. It’s bad for business.
    FWIW, from painful personal experience, fall-down-go-boom is not always met with a sympathetic medical-type person look.

    Being the same age as you are, Joel, I’ve learned the hard way that gravity is not my friend.

    You may want to start using a walking stick as part of your EDC when you’re out for the walkies. I have been using one that I made from an ash tree branch, and it has saved my ass a few time when I’ve been out walking. They are great not only for extra balance but also to fend off things like snakes, dogs and other pests you don’t want to shoot.

    The perils of the desert. Hope you get better quickly!

    Very sorry to hear that! Hope it heals quicker

    My physical therapy following my fall and shoulder injury included a string rigged to a pulley over my head and hand grip on each end. Stand or sit and use the uninjured arm to pull the wounded one up and stretch it.

    Rotate the injured limb to the front, then side after a few reps.

    I used 440 cord and a cheap small pulley from the hardware store and a couple pieces of PVC pipe for hand grips, but broomstick would work as well.

    Heel? HEAL!


To the stake with the heretic!
