Return to shingling...

Last time I blogged on WSG, I was in a severe state of depression. Now, I sit at my computer with renewed spirits. I thought it would be good to let you all know how things have been going since I blogged about my hamstring injury. As the title shows, I returned to shingling last week, only having missed 6 total days work. I think I am fast healer, because the doctor said I would not be able to return to shingling for 4 weeks. It ended up only being 1 and a half weeks. (looks like doctors aren't always right, or, I am just really tough. ha). Anyway, I am back to work now and feeling a lot better. I can't run yet, but I can ride my bike and pretty much do anything else. So, my depression is gone and my summer is no longer a bummer.

Also, below you will find pictures of Olivia from a triathlon she competed in last Saturday. It was held at Augustana and she did great. It was a lot of fun watching her.

Isabel has surgery this Thursday to remove her tonsils. She is excited for it because then she will get a lot of cookie dough blizzards from Dairy Queen.

Anyway, hope all of you are doing well and enjoying your summer.

Take Care,

Summer Bummer

Well, I hope you are all having a great summer. My summer started out great, but it has now taken a turn for the worst. Last Saturday, I severely injured my hamstring water skiing. The pain was so severe that I actually passed out on the dock. On Saturday and Sunday, I wasn't even able to walk without crutches. I saw the doctor on Monday and he told me that I didn't need surgery, which is a good thing. I was able to move around without crutches on Tuesday, but very slowly. So today, the fifth day after the injury, I am still at home, unable to go shingle or do anything. I have been sitting around the house everyday going crazy. I hope I will be able to return to work soon. I thought I would just post an update on WSG about my injury. Hopefully you read this and post a comment about what you have been up to this summer so I can read it and have something to do. I hope all is well in your life.
Take Care,
