day 1663 – full body

getting a run in this morning before my teaching shift and hockey game. it wasn’t a pretty game; was in a really big collision square in the chest that gave my back a hard jolt and that winded me. being me, i didn’t miss a shift, but i’ll need to tend to it after the game. safe to say i punished my legs beyond maximum capacity so trying to all types of remedies i can think of. ending my day with a spa-like set up going through relaxation and full body massage so i can go at it again tomorrow


day 1609 – unwrapping

this is the continuation of my christmas gifts unwrapping now that i’ve regained some of my vision. a restful three days makes the recovery go a lot faster. even at only at 20/40, i’m able to see enough to have the enjoyment of uwrapping. i either love unwrapping gifts or just the act of unwrapping. my first and second gifts kind of works hand in hand; i will be well caffeinated come the new year. can’t wait for my next ones to roll in

day 1607 – meds mishmash

a day after the procedure has me hooked on all types of medicine and drops. so many painkillers and eye drops prescribed i can’t keep track on which one is which and all seems to be the same. the limited screen time forces me to sleep and rest to make up for all the times that i don’t get enough. truth is, since the surgery, i’ve had more than all of december combined. truth is, this is probably the only time i’ll ever get enough sleep and the life gets back on a grind. this holiday season will start off slow but i’ve stacked my schedule for new years so the best has yet to come

day 1606 – photorefractive

didn’t end up having surgery done for my thumb back in october, but i certainly am having one done today. it took quite some courage to pull the trigger but prk finally done in the books. it’s a huge trigger and a huge change that i gladly braved, knowing it will be miserable during recovery stages. it involved a large sum, but i’m all in to making everything about my future brighter. rarely do i make clear cut decisions, but this one i made with confidence, for it will pay dividends in the long run

day 1559 – occupational therapy 

walking into the hand therapy clinic made me feel inferior, maybe because of the ghetto apparatuses, maybe because i was outnumbered by elderlies. therapist did a few tests before i soaked my hand in a so called whirlpool. dipped my hand in a pot of wax before she started manipulating it in ways that was utmost uncomfortable. the passive force was tender at the shattered joint and the connecting soft tissue. i was told the improvement is promising, but also reminded me my bone was broken in pieces that also involved a joint. as such, there will be complications and requires much more patience from me

day 1414 – numero uno 

although i haven’t been here too many times, this box feels so homey because this place has everything i like. a good first kineis rehab session in the books. nothing too difficult and starting off easy since he wasn’t sure where i was at with my recovery. he’s one of the most caring dudes i’ve ever worked with and would ask if i was okay every so often. the way he treats me is very warming and sweet. i wish i could play with everything here, but i had to lay off doing crazy stuff that he wouldn’t be concerned . soon, i hope the crazy stuff will be mine again soon

day 1396 – start low

lightening up and still feel difficulty with five sets doesn’t bode well for my psyche. four weeks of disruption from my workout program and all my lifts suffers a tremendous drop. everything must stay within warmup range until i can prove my that recovery is at 50%. i’m trying to stay patient but i’m not very patient at this and it sucks the life out of me until i am fully back. i’m waiting on everything that i have little control over
