These photos confirm that I had a tear in my rotator cuff. The Friday before my surgery Linda’s co-teacher and friend Ashley Lockhart prayed, “Lord, we claim your healing so there will be no tear in Woody’s shoulder.” When the surgeon opened me up on Monday he found no tear. All he had to do was clean out the mess inside the joint and take off the hook-shaped bone spur that had created the tear in the first place. God is good!
