A New Shoulder for Robin

I have to confess to be a real Chicken, not a fan of pain. Which is really weird because I have had chronic shoulder pain for a long time now...many years. I think I am one of those folks who live with the "lets not make anything worse philosophy."
This year I made a commitment to myself to push back against the problems that were being unattended to in my body. My Physical state is starting to look like a fixer upper house. Kinda dilapidated and looking like my shutters are askew.
So, I am having joint replacement surgery on the 19th of this month. I hope that I am doing the right thing, that some suffering will lead to less suffering, and less pain and more range of motion.
Well, I am scared. Frightened about making things worse, but KNOWING that if I do nothing, my Shoulder pain and range of motion will be gtting worse anyway.
So. I would appreciate prayers, Metta, good thoughts, LIGHT and Love sent to me by my on line buddies and friends.
I appreciate ya!

Big HUGS, Robin
