So it happened 21 years ago for round 1, and today I had it done again. Septoplasty is not fun, but I needed it as my nasal septum was bugging me over the past 6 months

I am healthy, Jennifer and Lachlan are heathly. Of course, Dot Dot is healthy. Im getting fitter each week and pushing my body harder than I have since training for the Boston marathon in 2008/9.
Working on cross-fit and strength in the weight room 4 days and week and running 30-60mins twice a week. In the cross-fit workouts I am trying to get at least one that incorporates a running portion.

It is straight, I'm just not standing straight.
Right shoulder higher than the left. Maybe a shorter left leg?

Jennifer woke up feeling sick and it just never got any better. She came home early and rested. I hope she feels better tomorrow. We were planning on going to Fort Smith tomorrow, but that is not happening now. I had a big day in school today, 8:20-4:30. Non stop. Think I sat down and 'relaxed' for about 10 minutes. Other than that it was teaching, grading, and organizing the track team. Of course, I didnt get it all done and can keep working to catch up to where I want to be tomorrow. There is only 4 more days of school this semester. Yippee!

Well I thought that I would add in some pictures from our beautiful Fall here in Arkansas. Lachlan is growing fast, as you can see in the pictures to the left. He had a blast looking at all the pumpkins and playing in the straw. The days started driving about 30mins and going down some very shady bumpy roads. We had a a picnic and the sun was out. Such a nice day. Michelle and Tracey came along and met us there. After a few hours in the sun, Lachie was tired and it was showing. Talk about grizzly.
All in all it was a fantastic day.

Ok, so after a 5 day break I'm back at school. Easy few days with a guest speaker. We only have about 3 weeks left in the school year. Happy about that.
We have our Christmas tree up. Looks great and ill post a picture in the coming days.
Lachlan loves our tree. Last year he was too young to really appreciate this time of the year, but he is good to go this year. Here is a picture of class today.

Long time since I posted so I thought id start back up again. Last year is a long time ago and I feel a million times better 365 days down the rode. Today is Thanksgiving. I give thanks to all the blessings I have had to be here today. My family, my wife, my friends, and my doctors & nurses all made it happen. I guess my belief in myself had something to do with it. Thanks to my running background for making me physically & mentally tough.

I successfully passed a girlie day.
We picked Lachie up from daycare after the feet experience. He was so happy to see us as usual.

I emailed Dr. Foster today because its been over 2 weeks since my surgery. Everything is going well and I am getting back to normal quicker than what I thought. I am limiting myself of the pain medications and just trying to stick with over the counter meds. I don't want to become dependent on the prescription ones. I feel a little numb in my right foot and I hope that Dr. Foster gets back to me on what that is. Might just go away over time... I hope so anyway.
Loving the NCAA basketball tournament on the TV these days. This is the most I have ever watched that sport. Did enjoy some soccer this morning and some World XC on the computer stream first thing.
A great day.

My staples were oozing yesterday quite a bit and not too sure if its because that the healing process or if its because Mum and Dad got me laughing a lot over the past few days. Laugher is the best medicine! but, whoo, does it hurt. I found a way I can hold me stomach together when I get into laughing and it doesn't hurt so much. I kind of squeeze my staples together! haha. short, temporary relief to a good joke or laughing moment.
Great to have mum and dad here, but they leave Tuesday morning out of Bentonville airport. Jen, Lachie and I will get them to their plane as they head over to Denver, CO for a few nights.
Glad they are not stopping in Hawaii this time after they might be hit by the tsunami today resulting from the japan Earthquake. I pray for everyone effected. It seems the world is not liking something happening to it.
I'm going to walk for an hour today. Its such a great day we gotta get outside and enjoy it. Ciao.

Gotta get my bag packed for my days in the hospital. I will hopefully post something from there in a few days.

I am glad that my parents are going to be there for the surgery and afterwards. I think afterwards it is going to be really nice to have them by my side. We can go walking together which I will love and a very important part of my recovery. Total recovery should take about 3 months, but I am hoping to be at work after 4 weeks and working without any heavy lifting. My parents are here for 2 weeks.
I will be typing up posts from IU and the recovery room. It should be very exciting and I might actually get some much needed rest!
