Good news all around. Plus it was nice to get out of the office and outside, albeit briefly, to the spring-like weather. Practice should be good tonight.
Just a couple of meanderings …
– Hospitals always help you remember how lucky I am to just be there for a broken pinkie and not something incredibly more devastating like cancer.
– If I was in need of dates, I would just keep getting injured. All of my doctors have been young, male residents. Not too shabby either.
– My main orthopedic doctor always tells me entertaining rugby stories each appointment. It seems he has played a few times, but is glad he walked away in one piece. I just laugh.
– And I’m looking forward to my two previously-splinted fingers regaining their healthy pallor. They look a little sad and sickly. Perk up little guys!
In non-broken finger news, this week we have officially switched to just one day a week Monkey Bar Gym classes with Chad. Last night, sadly, only five of us came and he decided to energize us with a chilly walk to a nearby parking ramp where we got to run 10 sets of the ramp’s stairwells. Six or seven stories going Up & Down 10 times. I finished in 16:15 just behind Chad, Max and Nicole. This included a brief stop to use my inhaler, so I don’t think I did too bad. But I also am amused that I pay someone to make me run stairs. But since I know I would’ve wussed out at like 5 sets on my own, I guess I pay him to yell/encourage me. And he does a good job. Plus he’s about thisclose to playing. I can feel it. Chad – quit asking me questions and just join already. 😉
