A Sunday Post??? What Am I Thinking?

Well, I'll tell you what I'm thinking.....Yippeeeeee Damned Skippeeeeee!!! I played 18 holes of golf today with almost no pain!! I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about that. At about the 16th hole my knee began to get tired, but I was not in pain. Hallelujah!!

I know better than to get too cocky about this, but I have to admit I am heartened by this turn of events. I am well aware of the pitfalls of being over confident, so I will keep things in perspective. Tuesday and Wednesday of this week is our annual Member-Guest Tournament, and I am hopeful that I will be able to continue to enjoy a pain-free golf experience. I have promised myself that I will not overdo, and I will not force myself to do things I'm not able to do. Thank goodness my partner realizes that I have certain limitations. We're in it, not to win it, but to have an enjoyable experience, and have fun. I have warned her that if I feel pain...I quit. She's good with that.

Since my injection on Thursday, I have been taking things slow and easy. I am not going to tempt the fates, but I am thinking I may be able to resume a walking schedule after the golf tournament. I have found one thing to be a problem, I cannot carry heavy things without a bit of a twinge in my knee. I think that's a sign that everyone should fetch and carry for me!! NOT!
I cannot carry my usual 5 grocery bags in at one time, but I'm ok with that. :)

In looking over this post, I see why I don't post on weekends. It's an odd post, but a happy one. I just couldn't wait to share my happy news. Hope my good fortune continues. Wish us luck.
