That was stupid
Yesterday around 5:30pm I managed to dislocate my shoulder and break off the end of my collarbone. It was completely avoidable -- I was showing off for some little kids, was in a rush, underestimated the risk, and didn't prepare properly.
Funny how a single moment can put you on a completely different trajectory. I was going to mow the lawn, then spend the rest of the weekend building things out of wood. Nope: you need two arms for that.
I also have to take the week off work -- and not in an interesting way (see above), and won't be able to drive for a while. And, there goes my weight training for I-don't-know-how-many months.
So, I'm feeling a bit stupid.
But, I guess I've learned... stuff.
Possibly will need surgery -- but won't know until the swelling goes down and an ortho can see me (hopefully mid-week).
On the positive side, I might get a chance to get better at the piano (one-handed, at least). And catch up on reading my e-mails (the writing of emails is cumbersome, as I'm one-handed). Maybe record a keyboard-only song? (Not my primary instrument -- or even with a level of competency, but...)
Going back to work will be awkward, as I'm a touch typist and (kind of) a programmer -- so, frustrating.
