Oh, OUCH! You are definitely in my prayers, Wolfdog; shoulder injuries really affect the entire body (balance, co-ordination, etc). I broke my right shoulder a few years ago -- weirdest thing! I was in New York City, racing to catch a train out of Penn Station back to New Jersey, when it started pouring and got really, really windy (this was the day before Thanksgiving, I remember). I paused long enough to pop open my umbrella then took off again at a trot - well, as much as one can trot on crowded city streets . Next thing I knew I was splattered face down on the sidewalk. My umbrella had flipped inside out by the wind and I'd instinctively lunged forward to try to catch it. Like you, I don't weigh a lot and the wind toppled me right over. I WAS SO EMBARRASSED!

A kind pedestrian piled me into a taxi and took me to the nearest emergency room - - ugh ugh ugh. Months of physical therapy ... being small-boned seems to be a handicap sometimes, though one would think it would be easier as there's "less" to heal. HA!!!

Anyway, you are in my prayers!!!!
