Protect The Internet

This is very important. It could take away sites like tumblr, facebook and twitter. Let alone put me out of a job. Let congress know you won’t stand for this.

Celebrating an Anniversary

I know I haven’t posted in a while and honestly I haven’t really be checking on Tumblr much lately and don’t know where I stand with it.  

But there are some of you that still follow me and I wanted to share some information with you.  

2 days ago was the year anniversary of my injury.  It’s been a year.  My life has changed drastically and there are many days that I thought I would never be able to run again. 

Last night,  in physical therapy, my mind changed.  

I ran.  

A whole 1/2 a mile.  

It’s the first time in over 6 months that I ran and the first time in a year that I ran without significant pain.   I still have a lot to work on but that was one big hurdle that I jumped.  

It felt good and I am excited to try again tomorrow.

Swamp Foot

How about a picture of a foot that hasn’t been washed in 1 month. 

I’m finally starting to feel better and walk easier.   I had the surgery in late July but the heat here has been so bad that my foot wouldn’t calm down.  The swelling lasted weeks and the bruising is still there.   

Because of the extended swelling I got a hematoma also.   It first went across my entire foot, but  after 3 visits to the doctor where they have squeezed ( yes you read that right, squeezed) the blood out of my wound the hematoma is now just in the hole in my foot where they removed the nerve.  

The good news is the pain is going down and I am able to start working on getting back into my running shoes again.  Also I am allowed to get the foot wet tonight and have a shower! 

So no more sitting around watching TV and asking my wife to get various things for me. Now its time to start working on my foot again so that I can be running and back in the gym soon.

LOL Texas drivers at a glance. We’re all giant assholes.

YES. YES YOU ARE. I’m looking at you, North Mississippians.

omg, Mr. Rex does this and it infuriates me and he doesn’t get why its a dick move, despite numerous explanations!

SUCH A DICK MOVE. One of my friends did this and it totally lowered my opinion of her. Jerk.

I drive an hour to work every day.  I sit in traffic everyday and it’s images like this and people blogging like this that make my commute even longer and traffic even worse. 
It’s called a Zipper Merge… Look it up assholes.  Here’s an idiot explanation for all you morons who don’t know how to drive.  http://jeffcaylor.com/2008/09/19/i-dont-know-everything-the-zipper-merge/

It’s out.

 Doc said it was the size of a tootsie roll.  She showed it to me and it looked like a red spider web covered in marshmallow cream.  Right now not in a lot of pain but I’m sure tomorrow will be different.

Foot Update

Hey guys, it’s been awhile.  

I think its time to update you on the whole foot fiasco.  

I go under the knife on Thursday.  

That’s right. Surgery. 

After 2 months of running in new shoes, orthodics, physical therapy, and whatever else the doc could come up with she gave me the recommendation of surgery.   Since this doc is an iron-women, I thought I should listen. 

So Thursday I will go under the knife and they will cut the nerve out of my foot and remove all of the scar tissue.   I shouldn’t have any feeling between my 3rd and 4th toes now and it should take a year before I get used to it.  

The good news is i can start running in 6 weeks.  (Hopefully it won’t be 110 then)  So for the next two weeks or so I’ll be wearing a shoe that makes me look 80 and taking it easy sitting on the couch playing video games.

 But come 6 weeks from now I plan to start over and create some new goals like run 1 mile.  

The great news for my wife….on Thursday I become a human bouncer for my baby.
