Tired but still going… Day 1106 27NOV11
Joshua woke up today on the tired side with his back giving him some trouble. It has been 6 days since his LP so this is unfortunately pretty routine for him. He spent the morning on the heating pad resting and taking it easy. At lunchtime Jarrod and I were getting ready to head up for the open skate and Joshua decided he felt up to going along so we all loaded up and left for the rink. He did okay on the ice, he took frequent breaks on the bench and skated for almost half the session before he decided he needed to call it a day. He is very good at deciding when his body says it is time to quit doing something. So he headed of the ice and got out of his gear. When Jarrod and I got off the ice a little while later Joshua was over on the north rink talking to the Jr. Bulls team that he is friends with. All of the guys on the team remember Joshua and were excited to see him and talk a little hockey. He made sure to tell them he is using the gear they donated and how much he loves ice skating. We headed home a little while later and took it easy for the rest of the day.
Tomorrow we all get to kick it back into gear with work and school but before you know it Christmas break will be here and we can go back to playing :)
