My friend Debbie from karate came over today and brought me lunch. We had a nice time talking about karate and exchanging injury stories. Two hours went by in a flash. It makes me so happy when friends come to visit that I almost forget about my injury. Talking about karate made me miss it even more, but gave me new resolve to get back into it as soon as I am better. I am sure I will have to ease back in and take it slow at first.
My dad got here a little after 4pm. He came all the way from Hampton, VA, a three hour drive, for the second time in two weeks. It is good seeing him again and I enjoy his company. He even cooked dinner for the two of us, a meal that Tom set up before he left.
I had a worse time than usual getting up and down from the recliner today. It's that same muscle spasm in my lower back/hip/butt area. This is lower that the impact area, so it must be a muscle that is connected to the spine where I broke it. Frustrating.
