KG’s Blog Post #16 – 9/14/09 9:03pm
Hello my friends of snap lore,
I have interesting and fascinating news to tell you all. I finally got out of bed and walked a bit. I was seeing a doctor who is trying to find the “spot” in my spinal cord that is controlling the nerve pain in my leg. There are 4 locations in the spinal cord so it is a process. After we locate the spot, we will inject it 4 or 5 times and kill the nerve that has been causing me so many tears. Sounds simple, but it will be a trial, and luck will be needed.
That was done on Friday, and then on Saturday I elected to play some golf at Breakers. Not sure why but i did – 9 holes from the reds (they are so lucky to be way up there). It was a comical disaster. I was awful at best and wow do i have a long way to go. I flushed an 8-iron and it went 120 yards – ouch, so short. My short game was its usual self and shot 3 over. I was ecstatic to be out there but this will be a battle.
Stan, my protho guru, fitted me today with a new liner and tomorrow a new socket which will make it easier to walk n swing. I can’t wait for him to start coming up with his adjustments to my leg so it will be easier to play the game – not easier, but you know what i mean. If the ankle holds up, we will start playing together where he will be able to see what parts need tinkering and adjusting.
I hope this blog makes sense and I’m sorry it’s humorless, but I’m just really serious about what happened today. All the names that you have all sent in have been great – not sure yet which name i’m using for my new boy, but will keep you posted.
On a soupy corny note, I want to say thanks for all your support and please keep the responses coming in, cause i cant tell you how many days i still have that are just awful.
Be good and swing hard,
