Pain and Projects....

I will first apologize for taking forever to make another post. This is due to pain and projects. First the pain. The insurance still hasn't approved or denied my surgery. This complicates thing, esp since management at my work only understands 'productivity' issues. As it turns out there is a line between people they like and therefore understand, and those whom they don't. I wont elaborate on that, however you get the idea. My knee has been swollen since my injury, and to complicate it a lack of use has invited my other good friend gout over. The pain is horrible. So pain meds, and rest have been my best friend.
During my moments of clarity I have been working hard on the project I asked for volunteers for earlier in my blog. As things are progressing, I will keep you posted. I am very fortunate to know so many talented individuals. This has the potential to be a real game changer when it comes to starting something big.
Anyhow I a sure hope you are doing better than I. I would not curse this condition on my worst enemy. :)

The Sum of all my parts...

Nothing like going to the doctors office and waiting an hour to see the doctor. Well I went to go see the orthopedic specialist and as it turns out I need surgery. Yup, I managed to tear my minisus in two spots, and the doc says it is possible that I may have to endure micro fracturing. (the drilling of small holes in a bone to create a more natural cartilage replacement. If this is the case then I will be down for up to six weeks. That is before I start physical therapy. The Doc wants to do the surgery as soon as possible, it all comes down to when the insurance will approve it. One nurse remarked that it could take up to a month before that happens. (oh joy)

On a much brighter note, now that I am on stronger meds I have kinda returned to work. Kinda is because even though I am physically there, I am not mentally all there. I also found out that my first doctor jipped me, he kept sending paperwork to my work that says 'Full Duty', ya let me climb ladders or move boxes in this condition. We will see what happens from here.

On a much much brighter note, I have been able to successfully begun gathering a group of highly trained specialists. I will have the privileged of working these highly skilled individuals on the big blog project. As soon as things are up and running I will announce to everyone what the sites name is and what it will be about. I am very excited because I have landed some of the best talent out there.

I realized early on in life that the human imagination and general creativity are limitless. Actually I should say they are limited by the individual. When I was young I would speculate on the places I would go and the things I could become. As I got older those became limited, I would tell myself that I wasn't shorting myself, but making my imagination more realistic. I had fallen victim to the all powerful reality. In this moment I had forgotten what imagination and creativity were for. Sure they seemed like goal and aspirations, but those are different things altogether. I have been given a second chance to revitalize my imagination and creativity. I happen to be very fortunate, first I have a very creative wife who can imagine things into reality, just check her etsy shop. ( Second, I have children who tell me ideas and points of view, often expressing their young developing imagination. Third, I have friends who never cease to amaze me, wither its the amazing travels they go on, the interesting people they meet, or adventures their everyday lives have to offer.
I am going to be honest, I always thought of myself as a creative person, but now I have been given a glimpse. This new perspective is promising, esp since I am slated to start new stories, and books.

On a different topic altogether, I had a dream that really began to show my age. The dream was that I was in China, and was one of several chaperons escorting this large group of sixteen and seventeen years olds, and they were in China to compete in a video game competition. I was there only to watch. Ya that pretty much was a killer, since I am a very video game person.

Mixed can of nuts....

So several things happened today. My brother came out to help me watch the kids, esp since I am down with injury (tomorrow I find out more on the details). While he was out here, I was able to hang out (in my legal drug induced state). My wife was able to take my youngest son to the hospital to get looked over. I have decided that there needs to be a video instruction when you walk into a hospital, it should say something like this, "Whatever happens please do not panic, we are highly trained specialists who may not fully understand the art of tactful conversation, also if we do not jump up and down screaming or rushing you to some awkward emergency area of the hospital, you will probably be just fine." There of course should be much more covered, but that should be the beginning. I would go as far as to say that Patrick Stewart should do the voice for the video. My son is due back Friday in the hospital for follow ups and more tests. I would as always recommend avoiding the hospital whenever convenient, please note for gushing blood and other life threatening conditions, please see hospital.
