Thanks to everyone who took the time to post some kind words on yesterday’s blog entry. To be honest, even though it may have sounded like I was down and in need of cheering up, I was simply stating fact. Writing can be immensely rewarding. But most of the time, it’s tough – and occasionally frustrating. Still, it was heartening to read such positive support – and Matthew’s father’s reminder that Haydn was feeling creatively tapped out when he wrote his most famous symphonies.
Today, Akemi and I went in for our annual physicals which, in my case, included a very blood panel, urine test (in the event I opt to play pro ball this year), ultrasound, ECG, vision check, and general inspection. To prepare for for it (aka fool the blood test), in the days leading up to my appointment, I chose fish over fried chicken and limited myself to a single dessert a day. I look forward to the results!
Meanwhile, back in Montreal, my 86 year old mother is nursing a strained back, suffered following an afternoon of leaf raking. Some time after the ninth bag, she apparently experienced pain in her knee that progressed to leg pain, possibly the result of pinched nerve. She’s scheduled to see a specialist in the coming weeks. Not sure if it’s to check out her back or help her with the raking but either would be greatly appreciated I’m sure.
