I know I have not been here a while. I am still around. I injured my shoulder early in the year by flying on the ice. I execute a perfect reverse double lux with a double twist mid air, I just screwed up the landing. Shoulder surgery on April 14. Totally out for a month. Getting one cataract removed before surgery, one after. Since I do not have internet at home, I will be out of touch until beginning of June. Until then I wish you the best. Jim

Hope you recover okay. Also, hope you'll be out on the ice soon…

Never again. I am going to get those heated shoes that instantly melt the ice. I turn 60 on Easter and heal much slower than I have in the past.

Jim you know the old saying "the older we get the more careful we have to be" I am glad you are going to wear those type of shoes and hope that they help you. Used to love ice skating…

I will be wishing you the best also. I tore my shoulder in 2008, Rotator Cuff. I'm having a MRI in the morning. I hope it's not as bad as I think.

Thanks all. Will be glad to see again and glad to get rid of the constant pain. It has been hard at times to keep a PMA and easier to claim PMS!

Admit it Jim you really want an excuse to PMS! (but you don't have the plumbing for it LoL!)

Seriously, I am praying for you and for your surgery. That it be safe and painless and that you recover quickly

God's best to you

Where were you with that reminder 6 weeks ago? I am finding it hurts more and heals slower.

margokittycat 2014-04-01 16:48:40 -0500 Report

Sorry, I was fighting massive migraines yet again and now a sinus infection the last two weeks none of the meds they have given me have helped. I will send Mama cow up to stay she will keep you in line and remind you.

Dear Jim; So glad to finally hear from you but so sorry that you hurt yourself so badly. Good luck on the shoulder surgery as well as surgery on your cataracts. I had cataract surgery on both eyes, piece of cake. To know after the surgery you'll never get cataracts again makes it so worth-while. My prayers are with you now and then. Look forward to you coming back in June.

Glad to see you back Jim! Sorry to hear about your injury. You'll be amazed at how much better you'll see after the cataract surgery. Wishing you well on the shoulder!

We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Heal well and recover quickly. We need your humor here.

I was wondering where you were and getting concerned. It's good to know what is going on. You will be missed here. Take care of yourself, heal quickly, and come back to us soon.
