“ our new WGN Morning News podcast yet, I just wanted to share with you that I’m going to be off for two weeks for shoulder surgery tomorrow. You know you’re old when you start using your vacation days for surgery🤦‍♀️😂

My shoulder used to dislocate about once a year doing active things like surfing (the story I mention in the podcast w/ the first pic here in the ER in Hawaii), tubing, riding a roller coaster, etc. But in the last year, it has dislocated about 10 times doing things like opening the refrigerator door🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ It happens so much that my husband and I now know how to put it back in.

You may actually remember one of the times it dislocated several years ago. It happened while I was doing a story at the Chicago Firefighter training academy. Soooo embarrassing 🤪 but they were amazing, as you can see in the clip sho..” she posted on her Instagram account.
