I just saw the Doc this morning and I am no longer wearing a sling. I can function normally if I don't do anything heavy or for long periods of time. I can do a little bit of photography now, but can't do my normal 8 - 14 hours per day. I plan on going out and getting some fall photos if the wind doesn't blow the leaves off first. I start physical therapy on Friday and continue physical therapy for 3 months.
