It’s 3 days until that pivotal 6 month mark, and not only did I finally play a full tennis match….I WON!!! Today I felt pretty good and decided to say “what the heck” and attempt a match. My warm-up was great, my movement was pretty good and I was curious how far I could go before I said “No Mas.” It was a pretty rocky start, however. I lost the first 3 games, then went down 4-1. I don’t know what hit me, but I entered a zone that I haven’t been in since before my injury. Much to my partner’s chagrin, I rallied off 11 straight games and took the match. When we walked to the net to shake hands, I actually started to tear up a little just thinking how far I’ve come since my injury date. My partner jokingly said “Welcome Back”…. I know I still have so much further to progress, but it was a great feeling nonetheless. I hope you all are healing and getting back to your normal lives sooner rather than later and that this big smile that I have on my face right now is something you all will feel in the near future!! Happy Healing!!
