well I was able to hold the camera fairly steady. These are pics of the internal pics the Orthopedic Surgeon took with the mini probe. The first pic you will see a dark red streak with a raised white streak in the center...that's the damaged AC joint. It's supposed to be flat and smoothe like the last pic...

Here's him starting to hone the bone with an instrument half the size of a pencil.

Here's after he honed the damaged bone away. Eventually the bone will smoothe over he says (I hope he's right...this is painful)

Here's a shot of my dislocated shoulder. He's inspecting in and around the joint for additional damage but had to dislocate the joint to see it all..

WELP...I promissed I'd post 'em and yeah...sux fer me. This is the reason I've been such a post wh...uh....posting alot. I've been home OJI since November and am going out of my mind. I normally work anywhere from 40-64 hours a week and this 80%/pay thing has sucked big time...I can't work, play paintball or even get a regular regiment of 'boom-boom' until it's healed. I'm not allowed to tinker except with a dremel on it's slowest speed...but there's nothing for me to do with it.....grrrrrrrrr......I have an extensive M98 scenario project that beckons for attention...
