Thanks to all the family and friends who checked in today. Clint had shoulder surgery to repair his torn rotator cuff this morning. What an exhausting stressful day. We had to be at the hospital for 5am. Veronica woke up for a bottle at 1:00am, and I never got back to sleep. Clint did fairly well (I guess) considering it was a major surgery. We got home this afternoon. Honestly, at first I thought maybe he should have stayed overnight. He looked bad to me, but then I'm not used to seeing him that way. It's usually me who is feeling bad! The anesthesia made him really sick. Even Phenergan didn't help very much. So far, his pain isn't bad. He was given a nerve block, but once that wears off they told me to expect a rough, painful night. Clint has a high pain tolerance, so we'll see. I made him take his meds just in case, so he should sleep good tonight. He just got up to eat supper and is moving around some since the nausea has passed. It's still going to be a long, slow recovery. A month in a sling... and several months of therapy afterwards.

Glad that the surgery went well. Well, I'm sure it'll be a good thingthat he has a high paIN tolerance. Unfortunately, you now have three to mother and take care of. Hope everything continues and hoping for a speedy recovery!
