2 Years on

May 15th, 2011 2 comments

Well. Here we are, 2 years on from the break. I am still in China, and my leg is becoming less of an issue every day now. I have started walking up the stairs at work rather than using the lift, as much to lose weight as to improve my leg. Read more…

Crutchless Ambulation

September 22nd, 2009 No comments

As a further update, I have been mooching about without the aid of my crutch for a week now. I have taken to leaving one in the back of my car, and the other is near the front door at my parent’s.

I am still limping a fair bit as my knee is not quite right. Last Friday, I walked to the pub in record time (10 minutes), and when I got there, a friend of Danny’s who I have met before asked about my leg. I told him about my knee, and before I could say anything, he was feeling my thigh and knee. He proclaimed that it was some ligament / tendon type thing. It turns out he is a chiropractor, and he was used to feeling up people, although, I doubt I looked like the happiest of customers. I needed a couple of half shandies to take away the mental anguish. On a less homoerotic note, I am now walking around like John Wayne. Well, it’s either that or I am walking around like a serial self defecator. I prefer the former.

2 1/2 days of work before a well earned break (forgive the pun).

Italian GP + Update

September 12th, 2009 1 comment

I have added another of my weight charts to show the relative qualifying performances of the F1 drivers for tomorrows race. From the looks of the weights, Hamilton, Sutil and Raikkonen have all gone for the glory of Pole Position. While that might be good for Saturday, when you look at the weights of the other drivers, you can see that only these 3 will be on 2 stop strategies.

2 months since the Surgery

July 20th, 2009 No comments

When I got back tonight, I took off my rucksack, and then went for the 300m walk again. I did it in 6 minutes the same as yesterday. When I got back again, I read a letter that was addressed to me from the NHS. It was my new appointment for the fracture clinic. It is on Monday 24th August at 2:55pm. So now, it is only 5 weeks to go!!

Fracture Clinic

July 16th, 2009 No comments

I did not go to work today, as I was going to the hospital. My check in time was 1:55pm, but Mum and Dad were busy this morning at the field, so I did not want them to come and fetch me from work.

It is one week until my return to Warwick Hospital for the fracture clinic. I am hoping that all is going well, and that I will be given the all clear to start putting weight on my leg. Read more…

Recovery Update Part 2

July 2nd, 2009 2 comments

Today I am just going to reflect on my recovery. I am getting bored of the whole “Got up, had breakfast”. I am sure anyone else who reads this feels the same. It was when I was lying in bed about to write this that I decided to change the style of this post.

I planned to get up at 7:30am this morning. However, I got a phone call at 7:20am, and was on the phone for 20 minutes. That then put me back a bit. I checked my emails, so that put me back more, and then I missed my chance in the bathroom. I got downstairs for 9:00am.

Sunday… Plus a quandary.

June 28th, 2009 2 comments

Nothing much happened today. I was tired after all my sticking yesterday, especially my right shoulder. I must favour that arm more when I stick, or something like that. I breakfasted, sudokued, exercised and interneted.
