Update from Oxford-reposted because I deleted it by accident

I just got back from visiting my local doctor. The news wasn't as awesome as I had hoped. Evidently, recovery time for nerve damage is going to take longer than I had hoped. Dr. Hoke told me that nerves repair themselves at the rate of millimetres per month and considering the size of my legs...

We decided to take his recommendations; continued time off from work and physical therapy.

I am very anxious about the extended time off from work (he thinks I should stay home until the end of April). I have classes starting soon and the ShalomPhone program requires a lot of over seeing. Plus I was about to start a video project that I was looking forward to doing.

I often tell friends and acquaintances who are undergoing physical therapy, "If it doesn't hurt, you're not doing it right." I guess there is such a thing as karma!

Anyway, "one task, one step, one day at a time." The next right thing is to post this and get the physical therapy arranged.


  1. I had a Dr. Hoke here at J.Hopkins in the nerve dept. That's strange. I've had a lot of plans that I made that I had to put on hold. While waiting on hold, I found that my directions shifted towards things that I hadn't even considered.

  2. Yes, I can't help but feel the same way.Here is a joke from a movie:
