Road to Recovery?
Regardless I had already decided to drop my game at St. Marys for tomorrow, I got another old Air Force Vet, a Colonel no less, with 38 years experience to fill in for me...thus ending my basketball season. I just could not see trying to run up and down the court, a large floor, while trying to recover from the Bronchitis and under the medication that can cause lower leg pain and possible Achilles Tendon Rupture. Don't you just love prescribed meds? The doc gives me the possible side effects and of course you imagine you are having them....or at least you hope it's just your imagination.
With the medication, something called Ciprofloxacin, I did sleep better, not as "noisy" or as much rattle in my lungs and brain...but I am nowhere near 100%. Looks like I will take a few more days off from working out...satisfied with turning up the volume on my XM Radio that is on my Internet, or watching the tube at night....last night, I switched the channels between Ohio State kick ass on Minnesota in men's basketball, and the NHL Game between the Philly Flyers, my favorite team, and the hated rivals, Pittsburgh. In a back and forth penalty filled game at Pitt, the Flyers rebounded for a late tying goal to slap one in with 90 seconds left and came away with a 6-5 thriller. I then headed off to bed, to try and make up for the 3 hours restless sleep the night before...Mission Accomplished!
I blew off the Baseball Rules Meeting at Van Wert....I've got plenty of time to get my four required meetings in...although as President-Elect and the head of the Mentor/Mentee Program I want to get most of the meetings attended...but I just wasn't feeling up to the 22 mile drive in the cold last night.
Hopefully I will feel better by Saturday, Patricia and I will be heading down to Centerville to sit with Grandson Kasyn, while Hal and Lisa belatedly celebrate their 2nd Anniversary....speaking of family, Anissa also came down with Bronchitis...and was put on meds last night...her bout does not appear to be as serious as mine....but with her other handicaps the last thing she needs is a major illness.
So while I attemp to recover...today I will maybe watch the twin races at Daytona...now you will know just how bored I am, being sick and all....I don't watch daytime TV...and NASCAR these days in a drag....just sayin'
Photos-Basketball, for me, is finished for another year, and hopefully I will recover enough to sit with 15 month old grandson Kasyn this weekend...
