Tomorrow morning I am going in to have my quad tendon reattached to my knee… Wish me luck. I will be on crutches for at least six more weeks and in rehab even longer as I regain usage of my leg.
I haven’t felt much like writing this past week (and there have been no adventures). It has been all I can do to maintain enough of a schedule to do what I needed to do for work. Everything takes time on crutches and just getting dressed is exhausting. For someone who likes to be active, this is a bummer! I do now have a handicap sticker!
Speaking of bummers. Although I liked some of David Bowie’s music and was sai to learn of his demise, he was never a favorite. But the Eagles were the soundtrack of my youth and more than one person in my past suggested that “Desperado” should be my theme song. I’ve often felt that I was living“Life in the Fast Lane” and at times I wondered if I'd checked into “Hotel California,” where I could check out whenever I wanted, but could never leave. Then I could relax and “chill out” to “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and “Take it Easy.” The death of Glen Frey caused me to pause and realize the years are moving along way too fast.
I won’t mention the Steelers, but am taking consolation in the realization that spring training isn’t too far off in the future. I just finished a reading George Will’s book on Wrigley’s Field and maybe after my drug-induced surgery stupor wears off, I’ll write a review.
