Bassslakebabe19, That had to be real disappointing but it is good for me to know that because generally I do push it.
I got a call from the surgeons office. They had a cancellation and the surgery was moved up to March 18. That will give me 2 1/2 months of healing before I help my grandson out with his driving. I will report the outcome of the surgery later. Praise God!

@car54 I haven't had shoulder syrgery, but numerous knee, hand, wrist and thumb procedures and total hip replacements. I reluctantly followed the surgeon's advice after the therapist asked me "How would you feel if you were unable to react quickly enough to an emergency and injured someone else?" I decided that I didn't want to take that risk, and haven't driven against medical advice since. Sue
