Pardon the Interruption...

But I had a little trouble with my shoulder not long ago. And while it looks like I’m holding that knife at the ready, the only thing I’m really ready to do is sit down.

It’s my right shoulder, too, and it turns out that I am more right-handed than I ever could have guessed. I won’t even tell you how long it has taken me to put this posting together. So you’ll hear from me again, just not as often for a bit.

For any of you medical-minded readers, the operation report says it was a full-thickness rotator cuff tear including supraspinatus and subscapularis, as well as biceps dislocation and a couple of other things that don’t sound like nouns or verbs to me. In any case, too radical for arthroscopic surgery, so I also have a nice 6-inch scar down my arm.

Just goes to show you should NEVER jump out of the shower onto a stone floor, even if it means washing your hair with your earrings in.

In the meantime, so as not to wander too far afield from food, I give you...

Meals for the Left Hand

1. Pizza from the local delivery place.
2. Cereal.
3. Cheese and crackers.
4. Chinese take-out.
5. Thai take-out.
6. Mexican take-out.

Or if you are lucky like I am, your angel husband will submit himself to your unbelievably tedious instructions for cooking steak, salmon, asparagus, and even vegetable soup. More on that later...
