My Withering Leg

I just wanted to thank those of you who helped with the Tipping Bucket last month. If it was a re-post of my blog or a small donation to help a bucket tip and some needy people get some help. It is a great organization and you should check back often to see if a project comes up that you’d like to support. You can also submit your own project should you feel so inclined.

Yesterday, I went in to the doctor to get my cast off. It had been 6 weeks of casts and I was prepared to get a boot and take it slow. Come to find out that I need to take it even slower. They put me in ANOTHER cast for ANOTHER month. THEN I get a boot after that. This is a walking cast, so I am a little bit more mobile than previously but it is still annoying. I knew the recovery was going to take forever but jeez…my patience is wearing thin. Luckily there isn’t softball or soccer to tempt me.

Plus the cast and the screws and the motionless joint all help out. Oh and hopefully there will be a leg left. I am a man with the leg of a 6 year old boy.

I finished up a new poem.
Let me be more specific, I posted it. It’s been on a pad of paper for a bit and finally it became something I was able to finish. Sometimes.

I am consistently bad at consistently blogging. It seems like my journal says some similar things. More than anything I think I just don’t take the time to make it happen. I watch too much TV. My life is full of that. There are other, maybe even better things I could do my bounty of down time and yet…
