My lesson in what not to do, as I last wrote in my blog, ended up being a bunch of lessons all bound together in one moment of impact. The day after I drilled my shoulder into the mats I was at the Urgent Care for radiology and hopefully some relief. Rather a long story, but I'll give the short version of it: 2 doctors, 1 specialist, a trip to the MRI center to discover I'm claustrophobic, 3 new ice bags, 4 boxes of heat patches, 5 cut shirts, stacks of bills, stacks of dishes, 2 refills of pain meds, sleep and no sleep, and now on my third week of physical therapy later.... I finally am at my six week mark of my recovery! Phew! Talk about a doozie! As it turns out I fractured my Acromion and tore some beloved soft tissue. Oops!

I had a follow up last Friday. The doctor said I still can't go back to Aikido or riding horses for at least 4 more weeks and a clean x-ray. So I'm continuing, as I have been, to keep going to class to observe, read anything and everything I can get my hands on about Aikido, and practice my footwork.

So I suppose this has been my official initiation to the art? Glad to have it out of the way! I'm super eager for the day I get to get back into my gi and finally make it to my official "3rd day".

Also, learned, there are horses look alike, but have different names, something about location of spots and color. Boy, I was confused. Well, this may be piece a cake for you, and I know nothing about horses, but I do understand horses are wonderful I guess, what I am trying to say is To learn a martial art (Aikido) requires observance, practice and lot of time. Otherwise, with out it, this only limits what can be learned and taught.

Yes Sarah. For example, it is an Art to ride and understand everything about horses, which takes a lot training, learning, and patience. For me, my extend of knowing horses...during my travel to Oregon and Washington state couple of years ago, I went to indian reservation in Oregon, that's where my meeting was located and was informed there are wild horses in the area, that was great to see during my stay and saw many of them.

Thank you Thomas! Fighting spirit? That's so much more kind than some of my old elementary teachers ever put it. I appreciate your reminder to take my time in healing. I keep hearing that from everyone, yet I too easily forget that. Patience has definitely been one of the many lessons I've learned from this experience.

Wow! I am sorry to hear about your injury. You have a fighting spirit. May I say, do take your time; be patient. Practice what you already taught and master it till this becomes second nature--without thinking. You will be fine.
