There are a few who wonder what is up with me. The last two weeks could have allegorically been The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
I have been rather quiet because things have went on that were dynamic, adverse, but would wind up being okay. If I went into it, it would produce more questions than answers and I prefer to not say anything. Later I would be able to fill in the blanks as well as not have people worry about me.
While going fishing a week ago (and I had not drank anything but coffee) I fell off of a plank leading to a pier, and crashed down upon the rocks. It was flexing like a diving board and I was carrying a bunch of kak. I was very bruised up and wound up ultimately with an infected leg. I went to doctor for it days later when I noticed how bad the infected leg wound was and I got prescribed a Z pack. I was going back and forth to the clinic over the past three days.
There was one kind of funny thing that happened in all of this. Some of the rocks were sharp and I got a couple places on my arm about the size of a thumbnail where the flesh was ripped off and all you could see was raw meat. I noticed one of these still on a rock when I got myself reorientated. I was cussing as I put my pole and tackle box on the pier. I then got on the plank and crawled up it to pier. When I got up there and was picking up my pole and tackle box I saw a seagull swoop down and proceed to have a snack of my skin off of that rock I fished for a couple of hours and, as usual, didn't even get a bite Maybe I should try using my flesh for bait LOL
The next day I was sore and just wanted to sleep. But caring people kept waking me up to check up on me. A buddy came by and asked if I needed anything. I had ran out of smokes. He didn't have a car so I gave him my keys to go get some. I kid you not, a cop pulled him over for littering because he threw a cigarette butt out the window. He had a outstanding misdemeanor warrant, got arrested and my car was impounded I was able to track it down and my girlfriend took me to retrieve it the next morning
The last doctor's visit (three... Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) produced mostly good news I have less than a degree of fever, my cholesterol is now back into the normal range, and albeit at the low end, my testosterone is in the normal range. It was confirmed that I have a fractured rib, no surprise there. The only thing I didn't like is that I weighed in at 242 pounds :/ Hopefully, I'll get more exercise with warmer weather and be able to shed some of it. I am feeling a lot better and healing up more and more on a daily basis :)
My tomatoes are already flowering and a lot of things are coming up in the garden. A lot of people start gardens in our community garden and abandon them. But the veggies do fine on their own and eventually go to seed. The result is that you will have a lot vegetables coming up that you didn't plant In my case it appears to be spinach. My cucumbers are up and some New Zealand spinach and basil. No sign of the black eyed peas yet The peppers are settling in and beginning to grow
I am pretty happy as I can move around now without pain and I am getting into March Madness. Opening day for major league baseball is just around the corner :)
My girlfriend is working longer hours as a cohort got canned so we can't do as much as we would like. She also found a buddy dead a couple of weeks ago which has been creeping her out and effecting her sleep with bad dreams As a result she doesn't stay up late as she needs to try and get some rest.
