Well its taken almost two weeks, but I’m finally starting to do some of the things I used to do. Still can’t pick up the kids (or wrestle 🙁 ), but I am able to go out and get sround reasonably well. The thing thats giving me the most trouble now is something I didn’t even realize was injured at the time: my achilles tendon in my left leg. Its really making it hard to go up and down steps and worse, it throbs when I’m trying to sleep. I think it must have been masked during the first week by a combination of the pain killers, the cast I was in and the pains of my other injuries. Now that two of the three of those things are gone (cast and pain killers, unfortunately…) it’s popped up front and center.
Hopefully its nothing too permanent, because it would really be a bummer if I had to change my training regimen (i.e. stop running or something). I don’t think its torn, so hopefully it will rehab along with the rest of me.
On a lighter note, it looks like we’re getting close to buying a new car for my wife. It’s been almost 2 1/2 years since I got my car and she’s had hers for over 5…it must be a record for me! I’ll let everyone know what we decide, but right now we’re looking at either a Tahoe or a Suburban. We drove the Silverado Crew Cab and she eliminated that straight out of the dealers lot…should’ve had her drive that first before the Tahoe!
