Haha I like making up words. Anyway, today was my last PT visit! *tear* In the last 14 months (yes 14!) I have graduated from physical therapy TWICE! Yikes! I went to PT last year for 5 months because I started a week after my surgery. I didn’t start going to PT right away this time because 1) my doctor really wanted my lateral meniscus to heal and 2) I knew the exercises I’d need to do. Regardless, I went to PT for just about 3 months. So let’s pray, sing a song, and do a little dance that I DO NOT INJURE myself again! I’ve met some really cool people and learned some different exercises, so it’s a bittersweet farewell, but I’m really glad I’m healthy again!
I was actually looking at some old photos and got a little nostaglic thinking back to playing college basketball and being injury-free! I also read an article in my parent’s local paper about a top notch high school soccer player coming back from an ACL injury, and was kind of thankful that this didn’t happen to me in high school. It has sucked that last two years to go through this, don’t get me wrong, but my college experience would have been completely different had this happened earlier in my career. I also believe in fate, things happen for a reason, so me injuring both ACLs means something, besides the obvious to take it easy for a while.
Many thanks to my readers over the past few months. As I stated in my previous post, I got into business school, and classes start next week so my time should be spent focusing on that rather than maintaining a blog. I have enjoyed every minute of writing on this blog - I never really imagined myself having one. So to be corny like Julie Powell who ended her blog with “Bon Appetit”, my farewell words of wisdom, words I think I actually live by, shall come from none other than my favorite athlete, Michael Jordan (coincidentally, this blog was in existence for 23 weeks):
“Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.”
