Wow So Much Time Has Passed!

I am sitting here in the studio able to type properly for the first time in weeks.
I just cannot believe it has taken me two months to just begin to recover from my frozen shoulder.

When I was diagnosed with Cancer I never thought I would be laid up right until the surgery. But that was the case.

I have spent the last 7 ish weeks doing nothing. Absolutely nothing.
I couldn't type because the nerve pain from my shoulder was going down my arm into my hand.
I couldn't craft because my right arm would not work.
I couldn't watch TV much because my arm would begin to ache.

So my pre surgery time has been extremely uneventful.

I had to accept the fact that I would not get 100 items for sale in my shop for the christmas buying season, and I had to accept the fact I would be bored-out-of-my-tree........

So now I am sitting here typing for the first day, and very proud of myself that I finished the last two chistmas items for the shop last night!

My shoulder is way not 100% I actually have about 50% rotation in it. But I have enough flexablity now that I am not hurting it with every move. So now I am trying left handed chores.

I will finish getting the house ready to decorate for the holidays.
I will get my dusting and tidying done and some last minute laundry.
I have a few cookies to bake and freeze for the holiday, then I am ready for my surgery on Wed.

I guess in the grand scheme of things there must have been a reason it was necessary for me to do nothing all these weeks. I am not sure the wherefore of it but it will reveal itself in time.

I apologize to folks who have not seen me in forums or chats or NING as I have been quite drugged up these weeks and with my typing probs and the meds I was just not into following up on twitter or chats etc.

I have been on high doses of marijuana pills to stop the spasms in my shoulder so I have been Baked most of the time.

I did accomplish something while doing nothing. I advanced in Yoville, Farmville and Cafe World and Roller Coaster Kingdom to all those nerdy bane.
But this past week even those games which I could accomplish with the mouse tucked on my lap for click and play became boring. I have advanced so far I am waiting for expansions to catch up to me.

My surgery is around 1PM on Wed.
I may have to stay in one night.
All being well I may get lucky and come home the same day.

The coming home part is up in the air because there is something about the procedure being decided the day of the surgery.
The Dr.'s are considering giving me an epidural instead of knocking me out. If they do the epidural I can come home the same day. If they knock me out I may be staying over night.
This is being considered because of my frozen shoulder being a complication...

So that's the updates for now.

See you on the flipside.

This Is It!

On this wonderful Day Of The Dead we paid homage to our dead, plus one.

Carl and I went to see "This Is It!"

It was the most spell-binding documentary we have ever seen.
After watching this we had a clear picture of Michael's vision for this performance.

It does not give a sense of a frail or damaged human, but a strong and compelling man who directed and choreographed an amazing show! Yes he had directors and choreographers on his staff but he we so hands-on he was part of every decision and every moment in the show.

It was also very clear he taught the performance team about the Spirit that drives him to be The King of Pop.

I hope you take the time to see this on the big screen. It is going to be great on video, but on the big screen you get a feel for the vastness of the production.

Enjoy the trailer below:
