On Oct. 3, 2018 I arrived back home to the Dominican Republic after a 10 week stay in the US. I was in Atlanta where I underwent two surgeries to fix my right shoulder that I had injured last May while hiking. The torn rotator cuff has been repaired and seems to be reattaching to the bone. Now it is a matter of allowing the healing to continue while at the same time doing physical therapy to recover my range of motion. I will not be able to do any heavy lifting for some months which will limit my usefulness for solar oven demonstrations. But I can accompany the teams and lend a hand (my left).
