‘Lotta Challenges — The Recovery Continues

As many of you know, Lotta Sports is still recovering from her serious accident (shattered left elbow and broken right shoulder) walking one her dogs.   Each day has presented challenges with adjusting to life with limitations.  There are good days and bad days…. Some therapy days are great and pain-free while others are agonizing and never-ending.

There are the monumental days like the day I almost formed the TD stance.   Getting there — baby steps…

Excerpt from my Hill Country Happenings column on the stands tomorrow.   “It has always amazed me how football players who make lunging catches and scrape across the solid turf,  get up like nothing happened.  Unfortunately, some don’t.  Instead they end up carted off the field in excruciating pain, loaded in an ambulance and within hours, are in surgery.  Weeks or months later they return to the playing field, but what happens in between?  I have lived it first-hand. “

    I shattered my left elbow several years ago. Good luck with your recovery and stick with the rehab. So sorry you’re going through this. Hilarious that you’re using the TD Stance as a marker of recovery. You go!
