It has so many meanings to me right now.
First, I realized that my tumblr account will now, and forever be, kicked off with the topic of Gall Bladders. Not so cool. But, it does give me the rest of the time to move up from that point and write about things more important to the world and still keep it my feelings.
Day two of being home brought a few interesting feelings. First of all, the healing has begun. It seems like every hour brings more mobility and more comfort with moving around instead of being tied to the bed. My family has come through with flying colors in my time of need and I am eternally grateful for all of their help.
Secondly, I missed a Game Day tournament, as well as a GP that was within an hour of our house. I wanted to play in GP Baltimore, but the main event was out for me anyway, due to point number three. I was, however, going to cruse down on Sunday (day 2) and get some cards signed and play in a side event or two. Sorry, I guess I should explain for what this babble is focused on. I play Magic the Gathering and have for over 15 years off and on. Long story that I will not go into in this post and if you know me, you already know as to the extent. I will not get to do any of the above, but I did get to follow along with some of my new found friends in the Magic world via Twitter. (Tom, Justin, Don, Ian, Roger, and those I have not found yet.) It was sad to have to watch, but certainly less sad being able to stay somewhat connected.
Thirdly, I missed playing in the Church band on Saturday morning. I haven’t played in a while and I was going to get to play with some very good friends that I have not played with in a while. Not only that, but it was the music I miss playing as well and I put a lot of time into practice.
All of these thing pale in the shadow of the pain I felt for over 12 hours, but they still were a low point in my weekend. I am working on better foods and a better way of life out of it. Something I should have done years ago. I just hope it is not too late.
