KG’s Blog Post #5 – 7/21/09
Hello my fellow humans,
History in the making – my fifth blog.
I believe i didn’t tell you that i received a call from the King and the Bear while i was in the hospital. Sadly, i was high on morphine and was unable to talk to them. I’m truly honored that they called – i wasn’t even sure they even remembered me. I was able semi-alert when i received a phone call from So.Africa – no bullslap – Gary Player was on the other line – another stunner for me. I’m not exactly sure what we talked about but my sis says i was ok. Another honor.
On the medical issues, i had a 2nd opinion for my left ankle. He also said no surgery – time and a boot. Sadly will take about 4 months to fully heal, but it shouldn’t slow down my stumpo training. In the exercise world, i swam in the pool today – surprised myself with my speed – can easily beat a turtle. It is a start – my stump leg actually had more kick than my left one – i was barely moving i think. I did 5 laps in the pool and on the 6th i almost drowned in the middle of the pool.
Next Tuesday they are going to set a mold for my leg and soon after i will take my first baby steps.
Be good and stay in contact,
