9/26/09 — Went to t he orthopedist and found out I’m going to have to have surgery on my right shoulder (rotator cuff). I’ll go under the knife October 26, the week after I return from author visits in Missouri. Best case scenario: 6 weeks of recovery and rehab. Worst case: 6 months. Good news: I’ll be able to write. Just slip my arm out of the sling and go for it! Now if only I could do the same thing with my favorite sport, rock climbing . . .
