Smile Speedy Recovery Wishes

Hope it not your dollar handle shoulder! I Suffered thru most of a busy season with Bursitis while trying to make the payment on the then new Thrush. Had the surgery in November and was back in the saddle well before the next season. Hope you have equal or better results.

You've been in my thoughts and prayers, too, Pierre. You do indeed have a lot of friends here, even those of us who haven't had the pleasure of meeting you in person (yet!). Take care of yourself and have a speedy recovery!

Some good looking young woman is probably checking in on you over night and this morning trying to make the recovery comfortable.

Hope it all went well and you are out of there sooner than later.

PS I suspect you've had too stick time in those heavy crop sprayers and plumb wore out your shoulder

I survived but the shoulder was junk. Took an hour longer to remove fragments of bone on the ball that caused limited outward motion. (Right aileron).

still groggy....later...and thank all of you,

Pierre - I was so hoping you would report in (but would not be surprised if it had taken a couple days).

It's good to have you back out of the shop from your "upgrade". Will keep you in our thoughts as you progress through recovery !
