I just got home from the hospital after 5 way heart bypass surgery. I'm still feeling kind of rough but hope to feel better soon. I can't even lift and open my guitar case. I got a Calton case for my new Colling's Baby. It's the only guitar I can play with my arthritis.
Dusty, congrats on your "engine upgrade". No surgery is ever fun, but if it lets you be around still to play another day..... The first few days are always tough, but things get better.
I got the clearance yesterday to carefully play finger style from my PT and I'll be out of the sling as of Thursday from my rotator cuff repair surgery. It has been a *long* nine weeks since the last time playing!
