Shoulder Surgery

Taking an early morning swim in California to convince himself that he definitely needs shoulder surgery in two hours.

After swimming a slow 200-yard crawl, The Idiot had to agree with his doctor and the MRI.
He has a large full-thickness rotator cuff tear of the supraspinatus tendon in his left shoulder and will be in the post-op sling of things before noon.

About Joel

Joel Stratte-McClure has been a global trekker since the 1970s. He lived in France for over 30 years, working as a journalist, before he turned his attention to a unique life-time-project of walking the shores of the Mediterranean. The first 4,401 kilometers are explored in his inspirational and entertaining first book "The Idiot and the Odyssey: Walking the Mediterranean." The next 4,401 kilometers are covered in the gods-filled sequel, "The Idiot and the Odyssey II: Myth, Madness and Magic on the Mediterranean,” published on Valentine's Day 2013. The last 4,401 kilometers will be discussed in the last book of the trilogy currently entitled "The Idiot and the Odyssey III: Alexander the Great Walks the Mediterranean."

      I keep clapping for my mother and Terri as they tolerate my pleasant demeanor following the op. Seeing the doctor on Tuesday and should be somewhat social once he gives me the red or green light.
