Another day of being injured means another day of doing very little â€” work, eat, watch tv, fail to do German homework, go to sleep.
I heard nothing about by MRI yesterday, so today I will start the process of being a pain in their ass.
I’ve been ghosted by the tree service company, but I obviously need to cut them slack given the devastation created by the remnants of Hurricane Zeta two weeks ago.
More of the same today…
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 189.0 pounds (+0.4 from last week’s weigh-in); very good given all that has happening and not been happening in the past month. I want to figure out exercises that don’t require my knees.
I just saw that the Jets lost again last night by giving up thirteen points in the final quarter.
A looooong day yesterday- in at 0930, out at 2200. For those playing at home, that’s 12 and a half hours. The upgrade was successful, but “something” happened that prevent some access how it had just been working. The thought was if they backed out the change it still might not work, so bear with it and we’ll fix it today when we don’t have to wake people up. It might be another long day.
This is my last work day until the 24th! Tomorrow is a holiday, I took Thursday and Friday is my alternate Friday. Off next week and the following Monday. I think my plan to scooter to the mountains might not be happening because of the predicted rain, but I’m holding out hope.
Bummer for tour long day, but hooray for your long vacation! Hope the weather cooperates for you.
Last nightâ€™s Moonlight hash was fun. Nice trail, great weather, good crowd, new restaurant ending: Wheelhouse Craft Pub and Kitchen in Decatur. I made myself sick eating too many tempura-battered cauliflower â€œwings.â€ Our poor waiter had much to be desired but Iâ€™ll give him a few points back as it is extra hard with a large group. We missed Injured Paulie.
Iâ€™m sure my presence was missed solely by how quickly you ran trail. ðŸ˜‰
As you know, I would have loved to join last night but I thought staying home would be productive (not so much) and I am less enamored with hashing when I canâ€™t actually do the trail.
Paulie, I bet you could ask your doctor for some guidance on â€œsafeâ€ exercises…
I will, but a conclusion as to what is actually wrong with me needs to happen first. I think the answer will be cycling and walking because â€œrunningâ€ will put too much stress, and provide too much risk of twisting, for the knee.
Of course I could do upper-body work and â€œcore exercisesâ€ but they provide other pains and concerns as well.
For what itâ€™s worth, I had some knee pain on Saturday during the first mile of the 47 that I rode. The pain was bad enough that I almost turned around but then it cleared up. Based upon my own knee experiences I think youâ€™re on the right track with cycling and walking.
And the hits just keep on coming. We think Brownie might have had a stroke. His head has a weird tilt and he has little control over his back legs. We’re off to see “Aunt Nicole” in a little while.
Aw, poor Brownie. ðŸ˜¢
Oh no. Days like that are the worst. Donâ€™t dally around, every minute counts in situations like this. I hope he pulls through!
oh no!!!!!!!! keep us posted.
Oh no. *Sending good vibes.*
Brownie seems fine now. Dr. Nicole said he might have a problem with his inner ear, which made him stumble- no facial palsy, so a stroke was out. His panting could be thyroid related. She took some blood and gave us some meds.
I’m sure he will be back to his deer head stealing ways in no time!
