"You need surgery," Dr. Smith said. "We need to look at your rotator cuff, too."
Normally it takes a while to get surgery scheduled. But Dr. Smith said, "I have somebody cancel tomorrow morning at 9:30. Can you come back?"
Of course! Cori Lyssy volunteered to drive Sheryl to Columbia, and off they went early yesterday morning. Sheryl says it was quite the adventure.

The nerve block wore off during the night and it isn't pretty. She'll need six weeks to recover. Thankfully she is taking time off from the store and hopefully she can fix all my bookkeeping blunders next week. Our annual store party is Saturday and we aren't sure if she'll be up to coming, but we'll see.
Thank you, Cori, for getting her there and back, and thank you to Steve Rees for pinch-hitting yesterday.
Sheryl has been putting up with constant pain for a long time. We are really hopeful this will correct her shoulder issues. In the meantime, I'm hanging with Tucker and keeping Second String Music rolling. We'd appreciate you thinking of Sheryl, and let's hope she's back behind the counter soon!
