Swimming update

Just wanted to post a quick note (since apparently I don't have much else to do these days, as I've been laying on my couch for the last 5 weeks). I went swimming the other night again (second post-surgery swim). You might remember from my post last week about my first swim, I had a frustrating time. This time, though, It was so much better. I swam 200m warming up, then managed to do 500m. My leg didn't hurt, and I was able to actually stabilize it in the water so it wasn't flopping around like a dead fish. I felt fine in the pool, though when I got done and got out, I was completely spent. It actually took all my energy to make it back up to my sister's apartment. I kept tripping on the crutches, and almost fell a couple of times because I had no energy (I must have looked drunk). But anyway, the swimming felt good, so I am happy. I'll be happier when I can drive myself over to the pool again, so I can swim whenever I want, rather than being a burden on Sherri, but happiness from being able to swim without any real pain. :)

Hahahha... watch out for the drunk guy on crutches!

Anyway... glad that the swimming went well.

See, if it were me, and I knew people were gonna think I was drunk anyway, I'd go and GET drunk! That'd teach 'em to judge me!

Plus, I like being drunk - but that's just me.

Good work on the swim, Joe.

We wish you a good meniscus
We wish you a good meniscus
We wish you a good meniscus
And a happy Knee Year

Sorry about the song, but I'm at work which means I'm most likely drunk. Man, I won't remember ANY of this in the morning!

Thank god!
