Greetings from San Diego!
I flew back to the West coast last night after 2 weeks of being in Jersey with my family. I am so happy that I made the trip back East to see my grandma in the hospital. I hung out with her yesterday before heading to the airport, and she is most definitely progressing and seeming more like herself. The pneumonia is clearing out, and the surgery to remove her tumor went great as far as we can tell. They removed her breathing tube and a bunch of other IVs and contraptions a few days ago, which was a great note to leave on.
The past few weeks I’ve been constantly thinking about the people I love and how important they are to me. Nothing compares to family!
I was super excited to see my hubby and pup last night. Reunions are always great after time apart from Adam, even after just a few weeks.
This afternoon we went hiking at Kwaay Paay Summit together. It’s gorgeous outside today! I was especially basking in the sunshine since I’ve been in the mostly freezing northeast weather as of late. I hate the cold!
Check out Harley’s face during the car ride home:
She cracks me up. Notice the dark spot in between her eyes? By Adam’s account, she ran full speed into a barbed wire fence last week, wiped out, then jumped up as if nothing happened and continued sprinting. It left a little hole in the middle of her face. She’s such a nut huh? I keep joking around with Adam that this is what happens when I leave town!!
The hike left my calf and foot feeling sore. In general, my calf has not been feeling great lately, even though I’ve been doing my stretching and exercises daily. I’ll admit that I’ve been slacking as far as icing it goes… but I’ve got an ice pack on it at this very moment. My physical therapy sessions have been paused for a few weeks now, but not because I was out of the area. They pretty much said that my calf should have healed by now. Even though I was doing a lot better, it seems that as soon as I do any kind of plyometric workouts (I’m even talking easy stuff like jumping jacks) it seems to regress. So, the plan is for me to go get an MRI done and see if they figure out what the heck is going on. Why this calf tear can’t fully heal is beyond me, and it SO frustrating! I’ll keep you all posted with what happens. I just feel like I took it easy for months and really tried to let my body rest, but enough is enough already!
Question: Have you ever had a sports injury that just won’t go away? How did you deal with it?
