Steve had shoulder surgery this past Wednesday. The doctor thought that it would take about an hour and a half. It ended up taking over 3 hours because the damage was much worse than he had anticipated. Then it was another 3 hours in recovery before they would let him go. He came home with a funky looking cooling unit on his shoulder. I think that it was to help keep the swelling down. He is very sore and healing will be slow. Much to his dismay, the doctor told me that he absolutely cannot do any karate for the rest of the year. We thought he might be back at it in some way by August so Steve is quite disappointed. Even with all the pain he is being quite nice and gracious for all that I have to do for him. I think he is smiling because the percocet has finally kicked in!
