No tennis for another 21 days. No day job either. I didn't ask for it but it appears my boss would like me to remain on the sidelines for another three weeks until all restrictions from my surgery are eliminated. My doctor's orders are no lifting over ten pounds for thirty days and I need to lift fifty in order to be considered 100% fit for duty. My teammates will need to carry me while I'm away. This is one of those glass half full or half empty situations. Is this a blessing or a curse? Those who are close to me already know the answer. I see the silver lining in the leave of absence. I get twenty-one bonus days of writing. Have a great day.
