Waking this morning the temperature was a mild 18 degrees, then, the winds picked up speed, grey clouds swept angrily across the sky, thunder rumbled like a hungry stomach and flashes of lightening flashed. Not long after heavy drops of rain began falling and it rained for the rest of the day as the temperature dramatically dropped. What a way to finish Term Three off at School, hopefully we will see an improvement for the two weeks of School Holidays.Following my efforts in the Athletics Carnival, I spent last weekend feeling just so totally exhausted and in terrible pain, pushing myself had taken its toll but to just be part of such a special day made up for it.
My last week of School was enjoyable and also a relief as it has just been one of the most hectic terms ever. In English we are working on ‘A Bridge to Wiseman’s Cove’ talking about themes and their importance to the characters in the novel. In Maths we finished off our unit on Statistical Data and in Sports Science we continued with peer coaching sessions. I think next Term will be extraordinarily busy also as it is a short term and we also have exams and many end of year celebrations.
I had physiotherapy again this week, it is always something that I look forward to, Kaitlyn worked on my spine, doing releasing, then I had ultrasound on it followed by heat packs. Physiotherapy is so important to me because it assists with my pain relief and I am fortunate to have Kaitlyn looking after me.
This week I also had an appointment with my Paediatrician, he monitors my progress and decides on increases in my pain medication. This time he also decided to do some blood tests, to check several things. He did the reflex testing on me, I have no response in my ankles which have been that way for a while now, but my knees are still responding. My Paediatrician is a very caring doctor and I know that I am in good hands.
The football Grand Finals are this weekend, my team, the Tigers are not in the main game but are playing the Raiders in the lower grade. Perhaps next year the Tigers will find their fighting spirit and make it to the Grand Final.
