Last May (2011) Brock underwent shoulder surgery in Klamath Falls to repair a previous football injury. Both the surgery and recovery went incredibly well. Brock finally sent us photos of his stitches and when he was in a sling.
The small incisions and stitches from the orthoscopic surgery. Brock
had four calcium screws drilled into his shoulder to tighten and secure the injured ligaments.
Elder Bird wore a sling for six weeks, which didn't seem to get in the way
of his busy missionary schedule.
