day 1529 – shattered thumb 

a blocked shot did all the damage. took it directly off my thumb and immediately knew it was broken but kept playing since no one was on site to confirm that. i couldn’t put my bottom hand on the stick, but i played on and eventually put one into the net. although netting the goal should not be my main focus now, it was definitely the saving grace of the game ending injury. i tend to downplay the pain hoping the injury isn’t as bad as it feels. two hospitals and four hours later, the hand specialist decided i can have a splint without immediate surgery. the night ended in a few disappointment, the length of time i’ll be out, and care and support that was present

day 1105 – night ball

it was more of a rest day for me with the exception of a softball game on back to back nights. the whole team played a good game and got the win. i had a good game with base hits, runs batted in and some defensive plays. closing the regular season on a high note and ready for playoffs. but the high ended as i later found out mo’s grandma had an accidental fall. i hope she’s okay but still waiting for updates

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
