Debbra, I think I sent a reply to myself, when it should have gone to you. Double check it. "WHY DO YOU THINK THEY CALL IT DOPE?!
Hi Jim @kramarpie – I am so glad you let me know the results of your visit with the surgeon. And I am so glad he is pleased. His recommendation is interesting… pushing it a little further… I had a friend who had shoulder surgery – rotator cuff surgery(?) and she said it was awful to the point of not being able to blow dry her hair, put on certain clothing, etc. I'm admiring you for the progress you've made. PS: You made me laugh on the comment of Why do they call it dope! I'm pulling for you. Will you keep checking in to let me know how things are going?
Debbra, yes I will update as things progress. Thanks for your encouragement. Jim
Debbra, This will be the last of my postings. My elbow is much better, although it is limiting. Since I never planned on tennis any more, I am OK with that. Bless your good heart. Good karma be with you ALWAYS. Jim
@kramarpie That’s great that you are through with the surgery. I hope your recovery continues to go smoothly.
OK @kramarpie – I am wishing you the best and just know that you don't have to stand by your "last post" message. We welcome you back anytime you want to check in and talk. Sending good karma back to you. Hope that elbow gets better and better.
