day 2309 – mri results

i think shocked wouldn’t even be the correct term to describe myself after finding out the mri results. i’m pretty shaken that my ankle ligament is completely torn. it didn’t really hit me on the spot, but as the day went on and i digested this news, i’m feeling pretty discouraged and utmost concerned. it strikes me that i will forever not have this ligament and it will never heal itself. if not treated, i will have no chance of being able to do all that i love doing – my sports career will be changed and limited forever. i had some chats with doctors and friends, hoping to get their thoughts and views on it because i clearly couldn’t keep my head above water

day 2303 – deterred

felt antsy and wanted to push my foot’s limit a little to see how it reacts. i did some step offs to test absorbing impact and it seemed fine. i then tried to jump onto a small box and that’s where the troubles began. i couldn’t bend very much before my foot gave in and collapsed in pain. no matter how many times i tried, i just couldn’t load my foot properly. discouraged enough, i moved onto test some squat positions and that was also concerning. narrow squat stance was painful but snatch squat stance was doable. i left pretty upset feeling no progress made with my foot

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

i can confirm winter is cold, especially up atop the mountain at the peak of whistler. the drive up sea to sky highway was pretty congested with the icy and slippery conditions, but we made it safely and unharmed, unlike my parents back in vancouver. they were involved in a hit and run but i’m not there for them and sadly cannot be of any help. i can only worry about their safety one hundred kilometres away plus pray that we find the culprit that fled the scene

day 1020 – life on the edge

we both carry a busy and fast paced lifestyle. during our downtime, we sit back sipping on our smoothies and taking our usual walks, making the most out of the time we have together. i am feeling exhausted after getting back into town, but i am still committed to an evening of training followed by pineapple league. another scary moment at dodgeball as i was down for second time within a month. head shots have been a problem; only a few days ago did i mention i felt like i was over my concussion. i feel terrible everyone has to worry about me and i hate to see mo so concerned
