So I had my knee surgery just over two weeks now. Apparently the physical therapist thinks I'm on track, but I don't know, I keep thinking I will be able to recover faster than normal. My brain is still having a hard time wrapping itself around the reality of an injury. I am getting better in slow spurts however. Just this afternoon I am practicing walking around the house with trekking poles instead of crutches. (Carefully, as I still have to be in my brace and with it locked out.) I am thankful earlier this year I invested in some super nice carbon fiber ones. Reminds me of a couple phrases and concepts. Like, no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate gear. Or, even in tough times we have the encouragement of the hope we have in Christ.
So yeah, just laying low looking forward to when I can get up and get moving. I've been trying to be productive. Making the best of my present time and getting ready for the future as well. One thing I'm excited about, I went ahead and ordered A new dry suit for the upcoming seasons. (Special thanks for the friendly people at IR for the pro deal.) I'm really looking forward to being outside this winter and being completely comfortable in my little sub environment.
Along with all my personal goals for recreation, sport, and work, I am reminded not to be too self-centered. I have a lot to learn in a long way to go, but want to be purposeful to at least be attempting to be a loving husband, and a good dad. Lots to do, reminds me of a quote I think by Martin Luther “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.”
