Jim had his follow up visit with the orthopedic surgeon after his MRI and he does need to have rotator cuff surgery. So on top of my bad day yesterday I find out that last night too. He says it is feeling better every day, but it does need surgery. 🙁
We arrive at the hotel at 8 am and are able to check right in! Also we get to see our friends HOOTIE and DISCOUNT! It was a nice reunion. We haven’t seen them in weeks. I find out that they both have had some nasty falls in the slick mud. HOOTIE even broke both of his trekking poles when he fell. So I wasn’t the only one sitting in the mud.
We drop off our packs and head out to breakfast. I was craving home fries. Of course they are not even close to Jim’s breakfast potatoes, but they satisfy the craving. I also had a broccoli omelet that was terrific. I’m going to start to request those at home too. I’m sure Jim can make me an even better one.
