day 1654 – queen’s tourney 

looking at some old photos of when we last played queen’s tournament, and now we’re looking ahead to this year’s. frankly, i haven’t played since september and i can’t tell if i’m missing the sport or missing my friends. it’ll be a real test for that thumb of mine come next week when i step back into the court to field balls. i’m not sure how i feel but i’m sure that’s not relevant. honestly i don’t know how my physio hand specialist feels about that, but making my comeback is bound to happen

day 1326 – queen’s tournament 

kings and queens is by far the best tournament i’ve ever been to. the level of play was really high as all eight teams were stacked in both brackets. the atmosphere and competitive level was like tier 1 playoffs, only much more spirited. i had a blast playing at this tournament; i’m really proud of the team’s play. i’m just happy to be on the court even if it took layers of gauze and tape to cushion the underside. it didn’t feel great inside my shoe and the mobility was limited, but i played well while still being cautious

 

day 1325 – punctured 

i looked down at my foot because i felt some pain, only to see red. i spent two hours hiding in the washroom trying to stop the bleeding because i didn’t want my parents to know. as i want for the bleeding to stop, doctor friends told me to go emergency room plus get my tetanus shot done soon. my mom later told me i had left a trail of bloodied footprints from the kitchen and up the stairs to my room. so i still need to play queen’s tomorrow and hoping that an insurmountable of gauze will cushion the wound and let me play
