Achilles Tendon


It seems that this blogger has taken a fall from all that is fun in recent days. My Valentine's gift: Rupturing my achilles tendon while teaching racquetball class. So, in the past 5 days I have visited urgent care, ER, foot and ankle specialist, had an MRI, hosted a climbing competiton and will have surgery tomorrow. Do you know what this means? It means that about everything I find fun and exciting will be off the table for months. The final judgment came down this morning when I got the MRI results. "A high grade tear, but not complete. " There are "a few fibers" holding it together right now.

Tomorrow at 7am I am heading in for surgery. Sounds crappy, and it is. Maybe I can make some blog posts while I am rocking some strong painkillers. It sounds like Vicatin is the pill of choice for the pain so that should be interesting. Hopefully I don't Favre on the painkillers. While I am in a pretty foul mood, my wife surely is the biggest loser in this deal. Anyone who has to spend large amounts of time around me, when I can't be active, I certainly do not envy. If you see her, please buy her a drink, I'll pay ya back later. (make sure she doesn't have to drive me anywhere, because without a right foot I am pretty much screwed on the transportation front)

I feasted on Chipotle for my last supper tonight and nothing goes better with eating than some video footage of surgery. Here is a video of the surgery, compliments of Beck. I figure if I eat Chipotle for two meals a day while I'm and invalid I will probably fit in the whale sling that Andy so graciously has offered to buy for me. My friends are always looking out for me.

Mitch-
Sorry to hear about the injury. Knowing you from back in the day and sure things haven't changed, I am sure you are going out of your flipping mind.

I had the flu all last week and was home on the couch and like you said in another post. There certainly is not much to do. I watched a lot of "World's Wildest Police Chases." For some reason this show is on about 4 different stations from 10-3 everyday. Incredible. Get well soon buddy.

Mitch,

Sorry to hear that you've ruptured your achilles tendon. I did the same thing on Feb 8th, 2008. Well, I've decided to create a website that will be helpful for people suffering from ATR.
http://achillesblog.com


I hope you find it helpful. There are lots of resources linked from i, as well as other people's blogs about their experiences

I'll put you on that list! If you can mention my site, if you find it to be helpful on your blog, I'd appreciate it.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Hello

I just joined this lovely place. I found loads of useful information here. I would also like to add up some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you wish to know how to lose 10 lbs in a calendar week, you are likely not seeing for a basic dieting and work out plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and exercise plan, However this demands a lot of time doing utmost cardio drills and sticking with a strict diet. Here I will outline the right steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Keep Distance from all deep-fried foods for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast every day. (this speeds up up your metabolism)
3. Take reasonable portions (stop taking when you are full)
4. Instead of consuming 3 big a meals a day, eat up 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. Its good to eat before 9 P.M. so that our body gets proper time to burn calories before sleep.
6. Proper sleep is necessary everyday.. Not taking adequate rest has been proven to be a major element to the body storing excess fat.
7. Utilise a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of unneeded fat stored close to the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those individuals who desire to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol.
10[url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips].[/url] A low GI diet is an brilliant method of burning weight quickly.

Thanks![url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com].[/url]!
