AC, Can You See...

Sorry...horrible pun.  I couldn't resist!

Hurt my shoulder learning to do a forward roll in taekwondo about a year ago.  It hasn't been quite right since, so I finally sucked it up and saw a shoulder specialist today.  X-rays, the whole shebang.  Apparently I have bursitis and also inflammation of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint, which is the same one that is affected when you have a separated shoulder.  Himself separated the hell out of one of his shoulders a few years ago playing soccer and was completely miserable while it healed, so in the grand scheme of things, it could be a lot worse.  But I did end up getting two steroid shots directly into the joint, which were no picnic either!  Ouch.  Hopefully they will actually fix the problem.

The only silver lining is that I am not allowed to do push-ups for the next two weeks.  A small boon, but I'll take it.

Preview, Part 2

(Or maybe this should have been part 1 since it will happen first.) We dropped Thing One off at his first sleepaway soccer camp on Saturda...
