    I couldn't figure out how to add a picture right... I'll try again at my desktop tomorrow. Haha the HORSE is going to boot camp! My husband is 30, and no complaints with him. Other than he is rubbing it in that I can't hunt this year, so he gets to fill the freezer 🙄

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Glad you’re on the mend.
    You’re lucky you didn’t break your neck and become paralyzed.
    Heal well, heal fast.
    Just for fun...Is the bad arm the one you wipe with?
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    Yeah, nothing dumb about riding a 1000 pound animal and thinking you are in control.

    Had a co-worker snow boarding last winter. Took a spill and tore his rotator cuff. Doctor told him he needed to take 12 months off from work so it could heal properly.

    Thanks for the info. We have a family trip to a ski resort this winter. I’ve been thinking what would happen if I took a spill. Now I think I made up my mind to stay off the slopes.

    HA! I think I finally figured out how to post pictures! Here's the latest X Ray. Ortho said its healing better than he expected, and I can finally start raising my arm! Hopefully in January I will be able to start building muscle back up.

    yeah 3 years ago i fell off a ladder 8 feet. Ahh!! no big deal 8 feet is a breeze. Not this time. The the tendon ripped out of the labrum in my shoulder . 2 surgeries 3 years later, I finally feel like i can use my shoulder without a whole lot of pain. I have good days and bad days. I really hope your collar bone heals completely and you feel like new in a few months. Yes it does take time. i didn't climb a ladder for 8 months. I did physical therapy for over a year. and still will not lift anything heavy off the floor. I see the xray post is 4 months old. I hope you are well on your way to recovery. Best wishes to you.

    Wow. That is some hardware there in the x-ray.

    Yep my days of walking through a metal detector undetected is over. Definitely not a bone I would recommend breaking! I have chilled water pop top actuator valves all over campus leaking by, and all I can do for now is valve them off 😳 once I'm off light duty, my husband isn't going to see me for a couple months while I play catch up!!

    Ouch! Sounds like you were on even worse shape than me! Definitely glad I went ahead and had the surgery instead of waiting on the 5% chance it would heal itself. I have been warned about bone ache for as long as I have the plate
