    There are pics of the damage on the GMHA website, www.gmhainc.org

    GMHA grounds are a disaster, as is a lot of VT 106 and the whole Woodstock area. It is going to be a long, long recovery.

    You should be able to walk and use the exercise bike as soon as you feel up to it. It depends on how much pain meds you are taking and if they make you feel woozy. I have had both shoulders done--...
