day 2382 – booster juicing

been craving booster juice for a while so took the splurge and tried the wildberry basil. it was one of the most healthy drink on the menu and best used for an after hockey refreshment. i guess it could be used as a consolation for not having played one of my better games. i also got a little roughed up with some marks on my forearm and a swelled up bad ankle

day 2307 – finger splint

a splint on my finger is so suffocating and inconvenient. i hate how it’s so restrictive it is and how it prevents the swelling and bruising to dissipate. i get that i need to protect it when i’m out and around people, but whenever i’m by myself, i would try to remove it to let it air out. i know this is only week one, but hopefully i can get rid of this splint sooner than three weeks

day 2107 – swollen infection

when i look down at my ankle, it’s safe to say there’s something really wrong with it. i got myself into my chiropractor because i thought my ankle was locked, jammed or sprained of some sort, turns out i needed to go to hospital more. the size of my ankle is twice the size of my normal and there’s random bruising on my ankle bone not to mention it’s burning inside. he suggested there’s an infection and get it checked out as soon. me being me, i checked the emergency wait times and declined. i wasn’t going to spend six hours at the hospital, but booked in to see my family doctor tomorrow morning

day 1577 – gambler

what a coincidence to be walking around the autowest showroom during black friday. must be a joke trying to sell this limited edition gunmental matte grey sniper on a black friday. it definitely got my full attention and drooling as a made a few circles. i took a big gamble today that i probably shouldn’t have. i’ll have to keep a close tab on it and hope that i’ll find signs that it’s just a false alarm. chances are i’ll have to make a pit stop at hand surgeon clinic if that isn’t falsified

day 1527 – iced knee

bounced off the floor hard when i dropped down too quickly to the floor. my chiro was on site but there was nothing he could have done for me there. there’s no taking it easy and i hate sitting out.  the damage is already done so i might as well continue playing through it; finished the night and immediately slapped an ice pack on it to stop the swelling. despite bruising up bad, it’s always a fun night playing with the girls. i am a little doubtful to be healthy for saturday night’s rivalry

day 1385 – elbows

img_20200204_1714507526963435880886134.jpgsecond week into my rehab program with the chiropractor and it brought some good news. although i still am off limits when it comes to the gym, second week is noticeably better than the first. i no longer wake up feeling like a train hit me.  my chiropractor likes that my back progressing at his pace, but now has to check whether my elbow is fractured. after bending it and twisting it, i’m leaning towards no fracture

day 1384 – dr seuss

taking a page out of dr seuss to motivate myself on this rain-filled monday. it’s always hard to wake up on monday and only harder when my back and neck are not at par and now even my elbow is in damaged. my elbow is swollen and in pain, but i’m in denial that is more than a bad bruise. i’ll wait for my chiropractor’s judgement before deciding if i need further scans. i can’t picture what life would be like if it came back positive
