It's been a week since I hurt my shoulder. And per the doc's orders, I have been a couch slug. I'm board to tears ... but I've watched some fantastic college basketball (KU certainly redeemed themselves against Holy Cross; and Florida's freshman [can't think of his name] is fantastic).

To make matters worse, the weather has been divine: temps in the mid 60s, sunny, light wind. My favorite time of year to ride!

The inflammation has abated enough that I've an MRI scheduled for Tuesday. That should show the extent of injury and the ortho doc can decide on what's next.

I'm also going back to work on Monday, but I'll be in plain clothes working a desk job (probably until February, best case scenario).

Being injured sucks. This incident has brought into sharp focus how fragile homo sapiens really are.

Be careful out there and take care.

Regards,
Jason
