I got to go to the orthopedic doctor today. He confirmed the break, which for some reason makes me feel better. I don't know why, but I was afraid he was going to tell me it was all in my head. He also told me there is nothing they can do except let it heal. I'm not to lift my shoulder for six weeks. SIX! But that's not so bad, I guess. I'm no longer sling-bound, and he said knitting wasn't a big deal. He doesn't mind me using my hand or bending my elbow... just NO LIFTING. If I lift it, he said I could separate the piece of bone that cracked and then I'd need surgery to repair it. So for now, I'm just to take the pain meds and take it easy.
I'm so appreciative of everyone that has wished me well. It is such an awesome thing to see how many people out there care. Really, I'm touched.
For those that are concerned, I'll still be at Rhinebeck. A little thing like a broken bone isn't going to stop me.
