Out Like a Lamb?
Yesterday was a windy, but sunny and warm day, with highs in the lower 70s as I headed north to my birth town of Van Wert....to work another game. A varsity contest between the home town Cougars and visiting Lincolnview....George did the plate, as I still wait for my staples to be removed from the carotid artery...Saturday I will probably take a turn behind the dish, but I'm still trying to figure out how to give my self some extra support and protection around and under the new Diamond Helmet/Mask I will work on that tomorrow, a rare day off, with the exception of Sundays, between now and mid May.
Today I will head for New Breman to for a doctor's appointment with the cardio doctor, but frankly, I am not sure what the appointment, made before surgery, is about. A check up is my guess, but with still a visit to the surgeon next week, for the staple removal...I'm not sure why this is needed? I almost canceled, but decided one more visit, more or less, isn't worth the hassle to cancel and reappoint.
Later this afternoon, it's off to Spencerville for a game between the Bearcats and last seasons Division IV state champions, Minster. Off Friday, and a scheduled triple header at Delphos St. Johns on Saturday...as I posted yesterday, my first big post surgery challenge of the season.
