After playing basketball Tuesday night, I noticed that my right calf was a little sore on Wednesday. I assumed it was just a normal bruise or sore muscle. Saturday night around 9:30 PM, I stood up and it hurt much worse. I reached down to touch it and felt a big bulge on the side calf. I pushed on it, felt it move like a big bubble of fluid, and a sharp pain. I tried to go to urgent care, but it was closed, so I went to the emergency room. They thought it was a hematoma but did an ultrasound of my legs to make sure there wasn't a clot. I got home around 1 AM. The next day I walked around of crutches (called "crunches" by Finn), and by Saturday I was walking fairly normally but gingerly. I don't remember getting kicked or anything traumatic in the basketball game, but maybe it was just too much running, jumping, and landing for an old man.
Last night Lisa and I went to see a concert by Sarah Groves (one of Lisa's favorites), Chris Rice, and Jars of Clay. Overall, Lisa said the experience was inspiring. All three performances were all quite enjoyable, though Lisa would have preferred a little more Sarah and a little less Chris. Elliot and Finn stayed home with Jordan the babysitter and watched Herbie Goes Bananas for movie night.
When Finn was sick last week, he fell asleep in some funny places because he was so tired but refused to lie down on his bed...
On Saturday we went to Northwood University's Kid's Day. The Timberwolves beat Findlay 34-17 in an exciting game with several long pass plays, an interception returned for a touchdown, etc.
