It was a complete surprise to me to get a diagnosis of bursitis in my elbow last week. I thought I'd gotten some strange bug bite because my elbow suddenly got all swollen and black and blue. I did not remember banging it or hurting it in any way....but I've got bursitis all of a sudden and I can't do my aerobics or weight lifting or pilates or... just about anything until it clears up. It's a minor problem,of course, and I'm grateful for that. A reminder to be grateful for normal range of motion!
Another reminder: Last night I watched "Touching the Void" about a disastrous mountain climb in Peru. Talk about determination! It was inspirational to hear about this climber's struggle to get himself out of a life-threatening situation (that his own stupidity had helped get him in to begin with, it's true). A good lesson in never giving up!
p.s. New emoticons!!! I'm so excited!!!
