On August 6th I had surgery to repair my broken clavicle. After just over three weeks, my pain level is negligible and I begin physical therapy right after the holiday weekend. I’m hoping to be able to get the viola up on my shoulder by mid-September, and then it will be a slow and steady process to get back up to the stamina and preparation to get back to work. Thanks to my entire team at Kaiser Sunnyside for their wonderful care!
Sadly, due to a bike crash, I’m out of commission for at least the next 6 weeks. I was wearing a helmet – no excuses, everyone should, EVERY time – and aside from some scrapes and bruises, I’m ok. Except for my collarbone, which is now in three pieces. Ugh.
