The Skinny

This is my first visit to my site in nearly 2 months. I am gratified that somehow I received over three hundred hits in the interim... thank you faithful readers.... those of you who have seen me at Kinsley recently are aware that I hurt myself significantly on June 28th... the ordinary aches and pains did not subside as usual. New pain under the left patella persists and has resulted in me changing my gait which has put stress on all sorts of joints and muscles that had not previously been major problems. I decided to rest my knees for several weeks with an extended Florida vacation on the horizon this summer... Living in Florida I did not have to deal with steps as I do in Yonkers or the temptation to play when I was not feeling 'Titanic.'  However, I attempted to play last Saturday and realized that I was probably doing further damage to myself. I will be seeing an orthopaedic surgeon on Friday. I am prepared to follow his advice. I am hopeful that an arthroscopic procedure and/or physical therapy will get me back out there.
