...so my arm isn't broken, after all.

In Sunday's hockey game I managed to collide at high speed with our other defenseman while we were together blocking a forward sprinting towards our goal. We succeeded in blocking him, but ended up hitting the ice pretty hard, me on the shoulder which already has a bone spur poking into the rotator cuff.

I didn't notice being in pain that night, but when I woke up in the morning I couldn't move my arm two inches without almost screaming in pain. I got in to see my doctor ASAP worried I had broken the arm, but thankfully that wasn't the case. The impact has caused my shoulder to inflame tremendously, and it's pushing the rotator cuff muscles up against the bone spur really hard.

No hockey for me for at least a week, more likely two or three. In fact, no holding things with both hands, or even pointing my left arm. It hurts.

And now my doctor is saying that maybe we really should consider doing surgery to cut away some of the bone spur. We'll see how it looks after the inflammation dies down.
