Hey guys!  Thanks for checking in.  I updated my Recovering In Style thread so a quick read through that will get you up to speed.  Don't want to hijack hankster's thread, ya know...    ;)

Good luck tomorrow, hankster!  Keeping you in my thoughts. 

Cheers,
Ryan

thanks guys. surgery went well.  2 weeks cast taken off and splint put on.  soon after having rotator cuff fixed.  when the doctor gives you a nerve block in the arm, gotta be careful lying down. that dead arm could go flying in your face. takes all day to wear off.
