    Keep the faith Eric

    Remember; that which doesn't kill us, only makes us irritable and sore. :huh

    Seriously though, Hope to see you up and about sometime soon. :freaky

    All previous offers stand, ring a dingy whenever. :deal

    I'll make up a really good one and bring it down when you are up to it in a couple of weeks. I may come by during Bike Week to visit. Take care my friend and trust in Him as I know you do.

    Man you are blessed to have such good friends and riding buddies. Some of their antics here have me cracking up.

    In my past experience a torn rotator cuff can heal up a good bit on its own with the help of some physical therapy. However, as broke up as he is, PT may not be an option.

    Sucks that this happened at the start of the riding season, but at least it wasn't worse. I don't know you, but I am hoping for the best for you.

    Big E, I hope you the best in this recovery. When they repaired my shoulder 4 years ago, it hurt so bad that I did piss my pants. But, I will get you covered. Size X-large on the "depends" and I will try to get Julio to strap them on after the bath.....:lol3

    I hope you feel better soon. We will miss you on the rides as well. Keep the faith! :clap

    Hello Everyone! I am Back!!....Praise God!!

    Whew.... What a ride! Went in for the second fixing of my Tibia and when I was out of that they said I need to talk to the "Special" Dr. that only works on shoulders...Okay I say and he says, "hey, lets operate on it tomorrow"....I say, I can't walk on my leg and he says, "sure you can" and stupidly I say well, let's GO!!!

    Let me just tae this oppertunity to say, don't have a complete shoulder reconstruction surgery when you only have 1 good leg!! What was I thinking?? Must have been high!

    Anyway, I have spent the 13 days recouperating to get to this point which is better, but still super sore! You really know who your friends are when you can't wipe your own butt!!:lol3 A huge thank you to my Beautiful Wifey for all that she does for me! I told her I was gonna speak to he supervisor and get her a raise!!

    Thank you very much everyone for all the calls and Prayers! A super big Thank You to Buddy for all his help and helping me into the house. Sorry for having to see my un-mentionables...:D 'Dos might be a little jealous.

    OH who-lee-oo....I need you!!:deal

    Glad you're feeling better Eric. We'll be eating breakfast at the Ranch House in Yarnell tomorrow. I'll sniff some bacon in you're honor. Hang in there amigo. You'll be back on two wheels before you know it.

    At least you get to heal all at once rather than staging recoveries! Just don't start thinking about an LC8 powered Razr/side-by-side. :lol3

    I have an idea for when you start the PT part of your recovery! :evil
