I woke up in my room all to myself around 8:30 which is probably the latest I have ever slept in yet and I didn't have anything until 10 so there was still plenty of time to have breakfast, get ready, and head to hand group. In hand group, I started out with a man's wallet, thank goodness, for last time they stuck me with a ladies wallet. I practiced pulling out all of the money and credit cards that were inside. The first time I did this drill I slightly struggled and it took a couple minutes. This time, I had every credit card and drop of money out and back in, in probably about thirty seconds or less. Again, this is always the most encouraging, when you do an activity, then experience it again a week or two later and truly see the improvement due to the ease the second time around. After the wallet, I grabbed my favorite bucket of putty and puttied my way through part of the hour. Once again, I got every bean out. Next, I finished up the hour writing a birthday card to my Big Bro Tim. Which, as long as I am saying it in here, I will be giving it to him tomorrow at the golf outing.
After hand group I made sure everything was settled and ready for my day pass for the big golf outing tomorrow. I am so excited to see all of the people which consists of friends and family and people I haven't seen for years and years. It is truly going to be a really fun event.
We ate lunch, took pills, drained the dragon, so that we could head out for a movie at 1:30. Kalli, my mom and I walked over to the local AMC just a few blocks away and watched Public Enemies with Johnny Depp. It was neat seeing the scenes from Chicago, Oshkosh and Rhinelander but really all in all thought the movie was too long, a bit slow, and not really all that good. I am not trying to discourage anyone from seeing it but it just wasn't quite worth the nine bucks to me. Either way, it was fun. On the way home Kalli and I walked passed a sushi restaurant right next to the theater and some people were out on the patio where we saw a couple of rolls they were eating which looked delicious. We looked at each other and both felt the urge to go try it out. My mom headed back to the apartment to make some food while Kalli and I decided to give it a whirl. We ordered a couple rolls, edamame and were not disappointed at all! One of the rolls that we ordered had ten pieces in it which for any of you that enjoy sushi know that is a humongous roll! The food was great, we paid our bill and headed home!
Once we got back I decided to transfer into an armchair we just recently got in the corner of my room. The chair is pretty comfortable and actually turns into a bed for patients visitors to stay the night if they so desire. While sitting in the chair Kalli and I decided we really needed to catch up with our blogging for again, we have been really busy and kept not having time to keep everyone updated. So we did four days of blogging until about 8 o'clock at night where it was then time for me to start my nightly routine and try to get to bed early for Alex Wilhelms is coming tonight to pick us up and drive us to Appleton in the morning, really really early. Can't wait to see you all tomorrow. Just a reminder again, it is a 10 o'clock shotgun tee time and a 9 o'clock check-in time. We have around 100 people signed up so please everyone be there on time or early so everything can be started by 10! Sounds like the food, silent auction and activities are all ready to go and I am so excited to get out of here and see all of you in the AM! Again, wonderful day full of fun and activity. Normally, when you are done with a day and you felt fine all day you don't sit back and think how great it is that I felt fine today. But, now, with this new injury it really makes me think at the end of a good day how wonderful it is to be healthy, feel good, and have another great day! See you all tomorrow, Love Andrew.
