My wife Marlene had surgery yesterday at Alaska Regional Hospital to remove bone spurs in her left shoulder rotator cup, and to re-attach disconnected shoulder muscle that somehow had been torn loose. Ouch! Her arm will be in a sling for a month or so, with physical therapy after that.
The sling is the most complicated contraption I’ve ever seen – with various Velcro straps going thisaway and thataway. When I try to help her take this super-dooper sling off and on, I feel like I’m flunking an IQ test – and I am.

Marlene’s doing OK, but the operation wasn’t one of the fun things she wanted do this summer. My son John and daughter-in-law Ann will be coming up from Frankfort, Indiana to help his mom while I’m back in the second special legislative session.
