    I know, man...but you just put the bait out there. I'd feel bad not taking it.

    Shyt, I hope I'm still ALIVE when I get to where you're at, let alone competing.

    No, it's a regular 4 BR house, I'm just a f.cking animal. It's not 1 day, we're leaving Saturday or Sunday, so it'll be 3 days. Just gotta buckle down & hammer it.

    6 month lease; moved to Nebraska 11/12, so I was month to month.

    Here's a little construction porn for ya;

    This is a platform bed I built. I needed something sturdy because I'm f'ng fat, platform for the memory foam, and I am a serial over-engineer-er. 3/4" plywood on top, 2x10 base, 2x4 platform. It's. SOLID.

    Here's the view from the bottom.

    Well, that wasn't very f'ing pleasant. Training today is out, I got some significant wrist drop from the marcaine around my radial nerve. It's gonna be like this for a few more hours.

    He used Celestone and marcaine for the injection. The bad news is that the injury is worse than we thought. The tear is really close to the radial nerve, and he thinks I have a traction injury to the radial nerve along w the tear.

    The ultrasound was really cool: he pointed everything out as he was working. He also saw some adhesions keeping the radial nerve held down on the humerus that he freed up with the needle.

    This guy knows his s.hit, young Arab dude that does nothing but non-operable ortho stuff. He's actually the guy that dx'd my last shoulder repair, and he referred me to one of his partners who's one of the surgeons for the tigers.

    He's confident that the injection will decrease the inflammation enough that I should be able to bench and pull again. If not, he mentioned PRP next.

    I got SIS brother. I'm doing therapy twice weekly with some movements daily. It has helped tremendously. Interested?

    Meh, there's often more to it than that. I've had a Mumford procedure on the right - he did it open, and that's supposed to clear room for everything to move under the acromium. It worked for about 6 months. A lot if times there are cuff tears/labral tears that don't show up MRI.
