No bodysurfing yet

Hiya,  Yesterday was 7 weeks, boot, NWB,  I almost typed “again”, but last time I only made it to 6 weeks.  This has been a heck of a summer.  I saw a lot of good surf go by without me.  For the most part I felt lucky to be able to watch.  Hurricane  Bertha was just  a classic groundswell.  But yesterday was cranking bodysurfing conditions, which can be rare here in old Jax Bch.  I did get a little anxious seeing my friends heading out with their swim fins.  I can’t wait to put on a pair myself.  That may be a few months away.

I have a doc appt in a few hours, hoping to get cleared to walk in the boot.  The excitement and hope had me awake @ 4:30 AM.   I realize that now is really the time to go slow.  A gal who has only known me on crutches asked, “Are you going to be this nice when you get better?”,   the answer is, of course, yes.

  1. Good luck at the appt. Get some weight on that boot and that leg. The waves will still be there in a few months.

  2. I’m sure you’ll be walking around today in the boot. It’s like awaiting Christmas, huh, waiting for the appointment. :) Have fun hobbling in the boot. It’s better than those crutches! Be careful. You should have told your friend that “nope…I’m only like this when I’m disabled and needing assistance from others, usually I’m a _________.” :)
