My one and a half armed brother heads for surgery #TBT

Posted By on November 14, 2019

I probably shouldn’t make a joke about my brother Ron going in for a surgical repair to his shoulder on Friday, but since he was the one joking with me about how he has felt like a “one and a half armed man” since summer, I continue the joke.

Hopefully, he will “slice” (ouch!) right through surgery and quickly recover, but one should never take surgery lightly. His shoulder repair (besides a little smoothing clean up of the socket) is to rework a groove for a tendon that will not stay in place and causes him significant pain. Since he really hasn’t been able to use his arm, there really isn’t an option besides surgery. Likely the most difficult part will be the rehab of his shoulder when he gets home — I’ll see how that is going over Thanksgiving when we are together.

I’ll be praying for you tomorrow Ron … oh, and here’s a Throwback Thursday #TBT photo of you in the tub a few years ago!  😊
