GAD! I’m broken. Andrew Bonnell emailed me friday and asked if i’d play basketball for his church league on saturday, and i was excited to accept. I haven’t played for so long, but i was making shots in warm up, i started, made a few points, some good plays, but i wasn’t “in the zone” yet. Not until the 3rd quarter did i start getting my rhythm back. At one point, i got a burst of energy, made a quick steal, went down for the dunk, but when i landed, i mess up somehow. To be honest, I don’t remember what exactly happened. I don’t know if i landed funny, hit the wall first (it was close to the out-of-bounds), landed but then tripped, i have no idea. All I know (now) is that there is a loose bone chip in my ankle, i have a splint on, and I’m going to see a specialist later this week who will probably put a caste on me. ugh. I have never been so disabled. I am going to have crutches for at least 6 weeks. Even colorado’s spill last year was fine compared to this. bright side – Dr. said probably no surgery needed, and I have a handicap accessible bathroom with a rail by the tub and a removable shower head, so that should make this easier, and i also get to park in the primo spot at work.
speaking of colorado though, i was planning on going out again march 10-18th. That’s on the rocks now. I won’t have time to go skiing in prep beforehand now, and my muscles are going to be weak, and that’s assuming i’m out of my caste by then. So i guess i’ll have to wait and see what the specialist says and see how the healing goes. effing blows. I also wanted to go to vegas over that same time frame, splitting time between the two, so i guess that’s kinda up in the air too. I posted 2 pics of my ankle in the gallery. I also wanted to start volunteering at the hill house in some manner, but i don’t know if i will like this. bah! I say bah!
glad i took the semester off from school. lost my Pitt ID though…so that sucks since i used it to ride the bus for free now and then, and i used it for penguins student rush…and i fear robert morris won’t give me an ID since i’m not registered this semester…we’ll see. I wish i could just find my pitt ID.
been spending time with a female as well…we’re getting to know eachother still, but i’m excited. She hasn’t signed the waiver yet, so i can’t say too much. 🙂2,307 views
