    Hopefully this will be the last. They are not sure exactly what the problem is with this one. They are going to take the camera in first. Worst case, they have to go in underneath his armpit. Thoughts and prayers if you will. Thanks!

    A Dr. Stewart at Northeast Alabama Orthopedics. He's done my wifes knee and my sons other shoulder. He had torn his rotator cuff and ligaments. He is excellent! Surgery is at Gadsden Regional.

    Sounds like you are putting Dr. Stewart's kids through college.

    The first surgery the hospital alone charged $56,295. Luckily I only had to pay $645.75

    Well they've took him up about 30 minutes ago. Surgery should start about 12:30 or so. Now I get to sit in the lovely waiting room until they finish and put him in a room. He's going to love getting out of surgery today, it's student nurse day. Last time he had a student nurse that was close to 6' tall, blonde and very good looking. In fact he didn't want to leave. She came in after he got dressed to go home. Wanted to give him a sponge bath. I told her we were fixing to leave. After she walked out he looked at me and said, how could you do that to me! And that I was a terrible wing man!

    Got into a room about 4:30. Surgery went well. Torn anterior labrum. Not as much damage as the first one. Alot of pain right now but loves his "button"!

    Good to hear.

    Is that the nurse button, or the pain med. button?
