Just a few more hours and I'm off until Monday! 
And have I mentioned how much I love my boss? So I requested off Dec. 22 - Jan. 1 to burn off all that vacation that I hadn't taken yet. But there are some major projects I am coordinating region-wide that have a potential to get crazy around Dec. 30-31 (multiple contract agreements with broadcasters and cable networks expire at year-end - you know, those crawls you see on your TV that say "your cable provider is negotiating with the owner of this station and your cable provider will no longer show programming on this channel if we can't come to an agreement after this date) so I know I'll be working intermittently no doubt. But yesterday my boss said she wants to be sure I'm keeping track of when I'm working on "vacation" and we will square it up. Because, you know, vacation is part of your compensation package and she doesn't want me to get slighted in the LEAST because of timing beyond our control. Bless.

I'm a little bummed. I'm not sure exactly what I expected. I guess I thought the stitches would come out and I'd be able to put a little weight on my foot and when the pins came out, I'd start walking again. Not exactly. The stitches are out. Monday I am allowed to take the bandage off and I can shower. Still no weight bearing. The doc says the longer I go, the better because I have bones fusing and the longer I give them to fuse, the better off I'll be. In two weeks, I go back for xrays and maybe have the pins removed. At that time, I'll most likely be placed in a walking cast so I can start a little weight bearing. The doc says the knee cart is my friend. Get used to it.

Stitches come out this morning. Excited and very nervous to get this over with and find out what the next step is.

Stretched and rolled last night. I found some sore, tight spots, mostly in the hips, and focused most of my time there.

Going for a swim today, then a run after work. First swim in about a month.

-Update-
So, I swam today...but got out after just 20 minutes. Called the doc's office and going to get my shoulder looked at. It's been bothering me for the past month, or so. I figured I had a strain, but think now that I may have a rotator-cuff injury.

Body fat was 16% yesterday which gave me hope, but today it's back to 19%. Hopefully I get a few runs in down in Fla this week.

Packed class with regulars and irregulars. Jose was all over the place, but no one really cared, it was still fun.

well Dad is off the breathing tube and doing better, but he is still running a fever and they can't figure out why. Apparently, he is not a good patient with  the nurses. He is still not "with it" and very confused. I hate not being there, but I know he is being taken care of and my sister is with my Mom.

Massive flooding going on around here - guess that is what happens when you have 70" of snow melt in 1.5 days. This has been one crazy week. Add to it all winds above 30mph so there is not a chance of riding in that stuff.

Heading down to Pittsburgh Friday to do the Dirty Dozen (12 Hill Climbs around the city of Pittsburgh and they are steep) - supposed to be 50 mile route and should be a blast! Meeting up with a buddy from TransIowa because he rides it each year. Should be fun fun fun!
