Going Under the Knife: NewsyDad's perspective

Before you start reading, take a look at the above video. It'll help explain what's happening. Really, just click play.

Today is the new chapter in my life as I undergo surgery to fix my left shoulder. It's been a long time coming. Why do I need surgery? My wife, NewsyMom, explains here as she sat in the waiting room, worrying about how the procedure would go and my subsequent recovery.

I know it'll be challenging. Challenging both physically and mentally. Challenging because Aileen will be the only one working while also taking care of Monkey, Lil Tank and myself. The doctor says I'll be out of commission for at least four weeks with eight weeks of physical therapy after that. You can follow along with my progress as I write about what all I go through with this surgery and the recovery. 

For now, here are some "before" and "after" pictures from today.

Have you had major surgery? How was your recovery?
