That's right David and I have shared some very personal moments.
Jealous?.....well don't be.
To see what I'm talking about view the below video.
Watch the confusion on his face (0:05), it is exactly how I felt, except I found myself on the ground.
Almost 2 years apart (since his happened on March 14, 2010)......freaky.
Here's my story.
On March 6th I was playing squash with a group of friends, something we've been doing for a couple of months. My friends and I were 45 mins into our games and I stepped for an easy forehand.
When suddenly I heard a snap, felt something spring up my calf and found myself on the ground. I instantly knew I had blown my Achilles tendon.
My friends took me to the Health First Centre and within 36 hours I had emergency surgery and had my tendon stitched back together. Here is a drawing of a torn tendon for those of you who are sensitive to blood.
and here's what it looks like for those of us with a morbid fascination for the GROSS things in life.
When I did it you could feel that the area was all soft and it looked like this.
These are not my legs.
(ha, although after wearing a slab cast for two weeks my left leg might look a little like them)
I am finally on the recovery and felt good enough to
sit up at the computer.
(Being unable to get out of bed is not as fun as it sounds.)
I also wanted to thank all of my friends and family
who have nursed me, fed my family, babysat my kids, given rides, phoned me and given me great books/magazine to read.
I have felt VERY loved.
I should be able to put pressure on it in 4 more days
I will be perfectly whole and back on the squash court in 6 months.
Can't wait until September.
