Hope everyone is doing well out there. I appreciate the comments and the support on the blog. To answer the question about winter ball, I will not be playing. The knee just won’t be healed enough to be able to play this winter. All of my energy and focus is on being 100% by the start of Spring Training and having a healthy and successful 2010.
Well, it’s been a while since i’ve written in here but i’ve had some people tell me they were looking forward to hearing about me and how rehab is coming along. It’s such a strange feeling when you miss a year, especially it being your first year in an organization. Rehab is the same thing day in and out but over time you make strides and notice improvement, and I’m starting to get to that point.
Well, sorry for the long hiatus i took from the blog. Honestly it’s been hard to actually want to write in here and look forward to talking about my knee and not playing this season. But i guess this is also part of the recovery and coming to terms with injuries and the affect they can have on you. I have never had to deal with anything like this before in my life, all of the sudden I was unable to do what I love and had to figure out what needed to be done to be able to return.
Sorry for the time in between these last two blogs, there are a couple reasons for it. The first one is that I actually got to go home for a 4 day weekend this past weekend. I had my last injection last Wednesday and went home Thursday thru Monday morning. It was very nice to go home for the first time in a few months and also probably the last time for a while. The weekend included home cooked meals, time with the family, time with the girlfriend, the beach, haha it was really nice…… The second reason was I forgot my password to log into my blog. Haha, so I had to get a new password and finally get back into things.
First of all I want to say thank you to everyone wishing me well with my potential surgery and recovery.
Hows everybody doing out there? Well, here goes nothing. Just wanted to start this blog off right and introduce myself. Im looking forward to the opportunity of hopefully make some fans on this thing haha. We can talk about anything you want to talk about. Just a little brief update on me, I have been having some problems with my right knee since about September last year. I recently had an arthroscopic surgery on it to clean it out a bit and the doctor found some soft cartilage in there that didnt show up on the previous exams. Right now Im continuing to rehab and do everything the trainers tell me to do so that I can play ASAP. I havent been experiencing any relief thus far but am still hoping to turn a corner sometime soon. There is a possibility that if I dont turn that corner soon that I would need further surgery on my knee and would be out for this season. I have never missed time due to injury before this past year so Im chompin at the bit to get back out there. Whatever ends up happening I know that i will come back from this stronger mentally and physically. And I can assure you that from the next time I get to lace up my spikes on, I will be more grateful for the game of baseball and for being healthy every time out there. Well I look forward to hearing some responses from you all.
