Progress

I'm happy to report I was able to get back on the volleyball court this summer. I had to cut down on my playing and tone down my ball-before-body instincts, but it was important that I still be able to participate. I'm still doing physical therapy and faithfully seeing my chiropractor - I never would have thought I'd have to be dealing with this still. Even for the intensity of the pain early on, I never believed I'd still be affected 10 months later. The experts are hopeful I'll be back to normal, at least as normal as normal will ever be, within the next 6-10 months. Gotta keep on keeping on! My travel schedule was so busy that I couldn't get in to see my chiropractor for almost 4 weeks and the pain and immobility came back so strong I was afraid I'd stepped all the way back to the first month after the accident. I'm thankful we're back on track though and I feel like I'm improving again. I just started jogging again a couple of weeks ago and working out with bands and other light resistance. Real progress people!

The cold doesn't really help though and for awhile I thought I was going to have to sell my house because I couldn't afford to pay other people to maintain it and couldn't do so myself without being spot sore for a week or more. I'm going to stick it out. It pisses me off to no end all of the sacrifices and time I've had to lose because of this and the last thing I'm going to do is let it drive me out of my own home. However, San Diego does sound nice. :)

Emily should be welcoming a beautiful baby girl in the next 24 hours... I'm thinking Superbowl baby?

Go Pats!
