Released!

Written by cycleguy on March 1st, 2017

Needless to say, after this post, I’ve been waiting for this day.

WEDNESDAY

MARCH 1

1:20 P.M.

After having the 22 staples removed, a series of x-rays to check on healing, a chat with the doctor, a visit to the therapist (physical smarty pants), I was released to go my own way! I will check back in at the end of the month, but for the most part I am free and clear. The only restrictions are physical pain and movement. I’m allowed to return to the Y (but I have to be smart obviously). No incline bench presses. No shrugs. No…no…no.  I have to be smart he says and I hear the peanut gallery (composed of my wife) saying, “No. No. No.”  🙂

It felt good to be released. To be able to drive my Frontier to the office without being chauffeured. To experience that sense of well-being which comes from something new.

There have been several “something news” which have come as a result of this accident. I’d like to share some of them with you in a future post or two. But time has run out for me on this one. I have a bike to ride.

OOOPS JUST KIDDING.  🙂

And here, for your viewing pleasure, is the xray of the repair. I think it is safe to say no airport security line will be safe for me.

    Yikes – that x-ray looks like something out of a Marvel movie. Please take it easy (not only it will be good for your shoulder, but also for Jo) 🙂 Glad to know you’re out of the hospital.

  2. Good news brother! I too have a bungi-cord, surgically repair shoulder, perhaps we could form a superhero team in the near future! Praying for ya!

  3. So glad to know you’ve been released, Bill, and can continue to heal. That’s quite the X-ray, but I’m sure all the surgical procedures made will do you nothing but good.
    Blessings, and stay off that bike!!! 🙂

    Glad to hear you’re free and on the mend. Everything changes, and way faster than Don Henley sang about; In a New York Minute.

    Praying for you, Bill.

    Great news, Bill! Now comes the challenging part–behaving while the healing continues! However, I’m sure your body will let you know, in not so nice ways, when you are overdoing it. 🙁 Listen to Jo and let others have the blessing of helping YOU! Praying for you, my blogging friend.
