I've been GONE. almost DIED a few times. the last 5 or 6 years have been ROUGH
Some of you know that I used to be a Basketball Referee working my way up through the College Ranks, tall strong and in great shape, then I tore my MCL during a game and couldn't walk for a bit. Set me back in my career for a year. But, just had to rest and let it heal and then I could get back at it. BUT NO.

While rehabbing I caught Pnumonia (and apparently cannot spell it). boom instantly bedridden for another month... and it all snowballed from there. I caught EVERYTHING that you can catch and recover from without having a permanent illness. I had NewMonia (I know that is spelled wrong) 5 times, SARS, COVID TWICE and even had a STROKE. Every time I got well and started to try to make a comeback BOOM bedridden.

The last bad thing was the STROKE, I've been coming bac from that the last 2 years. Basically have everything back for day-to-day life but NOW I'm FAT and WAY OUT OF SHAPE. I used to run at least a hour a day if not 2 for WORK, and most weekends I ran for 6 to 12 hours each day. Now I can't run.

Just started back working FULL TIME as a Public Safety Officer at a College about a Mile from my home. Lots of sitting and lots of walking involved. I too the job for the PAY and the Walking to try to get back in shape again. I have been working several Part Time jobs the last 5 or 6 years just to have something to do and some kind of income.

I run a Flag Football League in the Spring and Fall that is affiliated with the NFL.
I still Referee Volleyball and Umpire Fastpitch Softball during those seasons.
I picked up a gig as a Basketball Scout for am almost Nationwide Scouting Service.
And the scouting led to me getting hired as an Assistant Basketball Coach for a small Private Girls High School.

So now I have ALL of those jobs and my Full Time job. So... some of those jobs have go to go LOL.

Anyways... if you knew me when that is my update.
How are things going with you? What is the news?
I obviously do not have timee to play right now. But I hope to be back playing soon.

I too had some tough times (including 3x pneumonia also) which ended in a set of surgeries five years back, which included splitting my abs three times in a year. It took a few months to get back to work(s) and finish my degree. Then a few years to make the first sit up properly controlled and yesterday I managed to do a sideways tilted reverse sit up (not sure, if its the right term =D) fully controlled, like snail pace.
It has been a long and frustrating way to get back to "normal life" with the covid etc. and I sincerely hope the best for you and your comeback.

I wet mad in 2019, totally lost all control of my faculties, like if I'd killed someone I'd have had a legit insanity defense, ended up in the asylum. Took about 4 months to get my senses back, still haven't fully recovered. Yikes, though, you've been through the ringer worse than me.

Things are all awhirl with me. Father's Alzheimer's is full blown now, kid's activities taking more time and budget, in-law's feuding. Got promoted so work is.... mostly less fun but finances a bit more stable. Wife finally getting an MRI for debilitating migraines this weekend.

But I'm really content! Started meeting with some guys once a week to talk about whatever, and my marriage seems to just keep getting stronger/better. I have also decided to throw my hat in for the next election, so that will be.... something.

Take care of yourself, friend!
