Copied and pasted from my email:
It has been a struggle to get on-line lately.
My right shoulder, previously badly damaged, was dislocated when I fell off the houseboat about a month ago now. It isn't hurting too much, only when I try to extend it some - I've about 20% of normal range of motion - so it doesn't take much to extend it. I have to use my left arm to lift the right arm onto the desk surface so I can type. The incision where they did some emergency repair surgery is still oozing where it was (or is) infected - and it sticks to the bedsheets and my shirt when it dries - and hurts like unholy heck when the fabric is torn away. I'm now waiting for it to heal up a little and the next doctor visit on December 12th, when they (the doctors) are to decide what to do - they really think a shoulder joint replacement will be the only thing that works - and if they do that, I might be out of work (and possibly off-line) for a month or three.
Other wise, I'm doing just fine. I've not been able to do much of anything lately.
Anyone that has his snail mail... he could use some hugs and well wishes as soon as they can be sent. Looks like it's going to be a long painful road for him and he's gonna need as much sunshine as we can send him.
