One-armed blogger

Blogging will be light until my right arm comes out of the sling and I’m not so dependent on Vicodin. I had surgery to fix my rotator cuff and frozen shoulder.

About Joanne


  1. I’m on Vicodin for my back, but all I can say is OUCH!

    Get better soon!

  2. Word. 🙂

  3. My sister-in-law had that surgery a couple of years ago and she got real fast typing with one hand 🙂 Best wishes and good thoughts for a good recovery!

  4. Feel better soon.

  5. Get well soon!

    OH, no–Eduwonkette has retired and Joanne is on sick leave. This really is a recession!

  12. Frozen shoulder! Never heard of that. Does one stand near microwave, defrost 5 to 6 minutes?

    Hope you feel better….

    Hi Joanne,

    I had a rotator cuff repaired last June. Before the operation my shoulder was so sore, I could not sleep. If I could, I would have the rest of my joints fixed as well. My shoulder feels great. I have gained back most of my strength and almost all of my range of motion.

    I hope you do as well.

  17. I had a frozen shoulder after a fall a couple of years ago. It is unbelievably annoying.

    Hope the surgery went well and you recover completely.
