    I got injured at work last week. I've ruptured my right bicep distal tendon (pulled it right off of the bone it was attached to). I'll be in surgery next Thursday!!

    I should be able to dive singles again by the time we go to Dutch Springs in May. Doubles may take a little longer depending on how I heal.

    Hey........at least it didn't happen in the middle of the summer!! :wink:

    Do what you need to do to get better. The water isn't going anywhere. :D

    Better to heal completely than to try and come back to early and end up in worse shape.

    Neato! Sorry to hear about your arm but there might be good news, I broke my hand at work last week so since we will be off work for a while maybe we can schedule a winter LEDiver get together????

    Clouds do have silver linings

    I had the same surgery three years ago. I had the surgery in Jan. and was back to pretty much normal activities by June. Good luck and rehab hard!!

    I want to, but I've got a bazillion and one things to do tomorrow, as well as family coming in from out-of-town.

    Glad to hear that you're home, but sorry to hear you're in pain. Did they give you any good painkillers?

    Well at least we'll have plenty of time to get this section of the board hoppin' again! :D :14:
