day 1506 – grandma’s arm

my grandma is over ninety but probably healthier than me even before i turned nineteen. rarely has she made my family worry, but today i received bad news that she broke her arm from a fall. i’m worried that she’s suffering in pain, that she can’t take care of herself, that she wants my father by her side. she needs to go through a procedure and what she needs most is care that i cannot provide her. i just can’t rest easy knowing what she is going through and can only wish i could take it for her

day 1336 – lounge seats

my enjoyment the one hundred level lounge seats stopped short of the end of third period when i was startled by some news. finishing the game was the least of my worries as i rushed home to find out what’s been happening all day. i’m really concerned and i’m scared, but i mustn’t show it because my mom needs me to be strong at a time like this. i can’t show any signs of weakness because i need to be there for her to hold the ship together 

day 865 – emergencies

spending sunday morning at mount saint joseph emergency wasn’t the plan but it happened. woke up uber early to door crash the hospital and still had to spend over two hours taking xrays to find out my finger fracture is still inconclusive. the doctor gave me a splint and told me to take more xrays next week. i tend to disobey medical instructions so i would much rather not wear it, and still trying to think of alternatives to get out of this splint cause it’s very restricting to my activities. if it’s indeed fractured or severely injured, i’d feel super deflated cause i can’t afford to take time off training. this would be a huge blow to me and my dreams at the most inopportune time

day 481 – under the weather

so much can change in twenty four hours, from having the time of my life to hanging onto my life. all week long i had a feeling i was on the verge of catching it and so it finally did. woke up with a cold feeling crappy with a headache, nasal congestion and sore throat. nevermind the expiry date, i really needed some drugs to keep me going, but maybe i should just go home and rest up

day 390 – getting fat

matltasers┬áhad my at first sight because i saw these on sale at london drugs and couldn’t turn down that offer. at least it lightens up a bad day coupled by a series of frustrating events. can’t imagine how much sugar is in that bag of chocolate. the worst combination is eating so much chocolate and sugar without any exercise to work off that excess caloric intake. now i am definitely going to get even fatter

day 281 – nice view

the scenic view overlooking false creek towards downtown. cloudy skies until it started coming down just like the typical vancouver weather. at the clinic today doing some usual fix up and fine tuning to make sure everything works as well as it could before i leave town for competition out east
