If I Wrecked Waves as Well as I Wreck Joints . . .

By the time I die, I will be totally bionic. I'm certain of it. First it was the titanium knee. Now it's the ankle with the plate and the screws. And don't even get me started on how sexy all of these scars will be . . . not.

Oh well, you live your life like you mean it and you're going to end up at the orthopedist more than a few times, right?

I don't have the scares so much as I have a case of the dammit-what-have-I-done-nows?

I'm just bummed because this will keep me out of the water for a long time. But the other side of this is that my friends have rallied to my side as I've expressed my fears since I am now one of the uninsured.

Thank you, dear. I am not going to give up surfing and matting. This injury just highlights, once again, how very important those two things are in my life. If I have to give up other activities to ensure that I'm healthy for the ocean, I may. I'm not sure at this point. The thing about injuries are that they force you to sit and think. That's what the knee replacement did. At least with that, I could get in the pool two weeks later and start working on fitness.

With this, I have to kind of sit still. I will keep lifting weights on every body part except my left leg. I am not sure what I can do for an aerobic workout (although hoofing around the damn County hospital for hours just about did me in yesterday).

I love you, yo!! Some day we will meet. And I will get you out on a mat.

Scars are like regrets: people that don't have them haven't lived.
