Our friend Tammie

Recommended Posts

Tammie (Higgy) had shoulder surgery on Thursday. It is her right, dominant shoulder. I talked with her and she is doing fine. She has some pain, but manageable. I can only imagine how hard it is to move through your daily life without the use of your dominant arm. Crutches, putting on your liner and other things would be so much harder without the use of both arms. She was training her husband, Jon, to help with those daily necessaries.

We should see her back to normal in the next few weeks.

Thanks for letting us know, Neal. Tammie, hang in there...after all you've been through, shoulder surgery (while notoriously painful and debilitating) should be a proverbial "walk in the park" for you!

Take good care of her, Jon...we need our Tammie back! :smile:

Thanks everyone for all of the get well wishes.... they are much appreciated... Love ya all!!!

It's coming along. Still have the cramps, but we're working on it. Results of my blood test have not come back yet.
