Me and THIS Army!

Earlier today Helen Hip started to be a very minor nuisance again. Nothing major, but we had another super-duper conversation I thought I should share.

Helen: I'm not touching you!
Doug: Quit it.
H: Not touching youuu!
D: Go home!
H: Whyyy, I'm soo not touching you
D: Enough already, get OUT OF HERE!
H: But.. but... I'M NOT TOUCHING YOU!
D: Leave, or I'm gonna kick your butt!
H: You and what army?!

Thanks to anybody and everybody who has shown support during these past few months. I started making this list, and it turned out to be a LOT longer than I ever anticipated it being! Even if I'm going through some tough times with this hip, I have a lot of people rooting for me to get better, and its really appreciated! But not only is it appreciated, it helps keep me from doing anything stupid. Going out and hurting my hip by trying to come back too fast will effect much more than just me.

Metaphors aside, my hip is feeling fairly good this evening. The usual tightness is still there. There is one muscle which is a little worse than the other, but it isn't anything that has hurt before. And once again, its just tight, not sore. I'm thinking about going swimming in a little bit, and then I might run in the morning. If I run it will once again be no more than a mile. Once I master the slow mile, I'll let myself move up in distance.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

I so glad to be on YOUR list and so glad to count you on MINE. You are a great support!! Take care.

Don't be too hard on Ms. Hip - remember she may feel the pain but there is probably a few other trouble makers (like Mr. SI joint)... that are causing it.

Just like your full army of supports, take care of those army of body parts.
