Bit tired this morning after vigorous day yesterday. Tuesday is a day off work and an exercise day. Started the laborious task of trying to get the bloodstains out of everything. Blood splatters are all through my sheets, clothes and even pillowcases. I don’t know how I got blood on the pillowcases but it must’ve been by thrashing around and scratching in my sleep. Left a pile of sheets and clothes soaking in the laundry tub, then headed down to Manly for a swim. The Manly Surf Club clubhouse is quiet and deserted – a change from the usual, cheery tumult. Swam over to Shelly on a bright sunny day with a chill, southerly wind blowing. Water cooling down but not cold. It’s not as much fun on your own although there is a certain joy being in the water on a bright sunny day and there are myriads of fish in the water. I missed the human dynamic. I was also tentative about whether yesterday’s exertions would hurt my shoulders and leave me with residual pain. No evidence of that so I just cruised along. It would appear that about seven weeks after finally leaving wheelchair and crutches behind, I have overcome the damage I did to my shoulders. I feel this is a major milestone as I compounded the leg injury by injuring both my shoulders. This was unnecessary but nobody warned me how careful you have to be with a wheelchair and crutches. Given the damage you can do to shoulders, it’s amazing that nobody warns you.
