Starting Physical Therapy. Again.
Afternoon watch, 2 bells (1:05 pm)

I've been off pain meds for several days now, which is nice to have happen so quickly. It took a very long time with my previous surgery, about two months. Tomorrow morning I have my first physical therapy session for my arm. It's with a different therapist than my achilles tendon therapy was. So now I can owe two therapists money at the same time!

I'm hoping I can get back to playing the mandolin again soon, but I doubt it'll be sooner than a couple of weeks. I have a return appointment with my doctor next Tuesday. Perhaps I'll get permission to start removing this darn brace. It's very hard for me to sleep with a brace and sling on.

Last week when I had my first follow-up with the doctor, he said I came out of anesthesia "like an angry bear." That was his official diagnosis.
