I’m having my right shoulder replaced in a couple of days and it’s amazing what needs to be done beforehand! Part of the problem is that my right arm will be in a sling for a while and I can barely scratch my nose with my left hand. So in addition to rearranging all kinds of schedules I have to do a bunch of home stuff while I can still use my right hand.

This is my fourth joint replacement (and my second shoulder replacement) since my RA diagnosis not quite 10 years ago. I keep telling my husband that I’m getting younger instead of older since I have all these new parts.

I also tell him that when I die that instead of burying me, he should just turn me into a hardware store and make a bit of money.

At any rate, I go in for surgery 2/15 and will be in the hospital for at least a couple of days. I’ll try to update as soon as I can, but typing is going to be a challenge for a while.

Looking forward to being back online! Thanks for checking in.
