Pull start push mower or sling blade

Not sure which one did me in, but here I sit with a heating pad on my right shoulder while I sip some Jeffersons Small Batch.

Doc said I have an impinged bicep and a possible partial tear of my rotator cuff. Mower wouldn't start. I yanked that cord until I got it started. Then it would die and I had to yank until I got it started again. I believe it had some bad gas or dirt dauber, lol. It eventually backfired and ran fine.

I don't recall anything hurting at the time. After mowing I used the sling blade on stalky weeds growing around the barn. Again, I don't recall anything hurting at the time, or a telltale pop.

I go back in a few weeks for imaging if it doesn't clear up with some PT, rest and TLC.
