if the drugs dont work, youre taking the wrong drugs.

here’s a list of the fine fine pharmaceuticals i’ve been asked to take daily:

omeprazal:  1 to line the stomach first thing in the morning before eating

paracetamol:  2 every 8 hours

enantyum (dexibuprofeno): 1 every four hours after food

fraxiparina (warfarin): 1 injection subcataneuous at 6′oopm every day to thin the blood

so basically i’m taking painkillers, a stomach liner and ratpoison.

however i eat 6 times a day (lo carbs, fiber and up top 160 grams of protein a day as well as fruit and vitamins) as part of my get fit and well (ha ha ha) diet… i havent tried yet but i plan to continue with upper body workouts…for lats, biceps, triceps, pecs etc etc.. most of these i can do sitting down. i will also try some low level squeeze crunches for upper abs… this shouldnt effect my achilles as i use very slow deliberate form when working out.. slow and steady…never jerky…

that with the occasional crutch hop to the bathroom should keep me fit and burning fat….

hmmm still losing weight…. took the heavybag down depresses me to think i wont be hitting that for a few months yet..and skipping is right out the window…

bloat like a blubberfly fall like a tree.

now where’s that “when we were kings”  dvd?


ps: for a workout click the link on my page for SCOOBY.  great free advice and free videos.


op hop and drop

was only in one nite… hoorah…

took the nurse 5 yes 5 goes to find a vein… hand now swollen like a badly fitting glove.

woke up in plaster… a bloody great heavy thing…is this normal?

read all of… “the man who mistook his wife for a hat” … special notes on the chapter about phantom limbs.

phone calls from mum, dad, brothers (all 4 of them!) even thomas … fighting in afghanistan… humbled.

offer of a sponge bath in nurses uniform from my girlfriend…least that still works.

they reckon first cast off on 14th of september… hope they replace it with fibreglass job… lighter.

i want an aggresive recovery… depends on me i suppose….take it easy first three weeks

already lost weight.. not counting the heavy plaster…reckon i lost half a kilo this week… (about a pound)

now to sit in my gym doing upper body…cant afford to lose muscle mass.

then back to the sofa for more leg up….dreaming of leg over.
