It's a green light !!

Today I went to see the doctor for my first check up after surgery. It will be 2 weeks tomorrow since I went under the knife. I have been feeling pretty good each day. I am still pretty sore where I got cut but I am told that is normal. I guess I kind of remember feeling sore like this last year as well. I was thinking Saturday would be the first run of the comeback. Maybe a big old mile or two !!! But in true Kurt fashion I had something go wrong and ended up getting in a big 1/2 mile tonight in my jeans.

While picking up Evan at daycare which is like 1/4 mile from home Summer was sleeping in the car. I left it running so she would stay warm and then lock the doors to keep her safe while I got Evan inside with the idea of knocking on the window to have her let us in. Well one problem she was sound asleep with her ipod playing music in her ears. I knocked so many time on the window real hard I was thinking I was going to break the window. Sound sleeper huh.

So it was then I picked up Evan and ran with him in my arms to the house. At this point I left him with Sonya and ran back to the car with a spare key. When I opened the door Summer woke up !!! Man what a night. It was fun to feel like a runner even if it was only like a 1/2 mile or so.

Great news, Kurt! Glad to hear your recovery is going well. Keep it up and you'll be back in no time. Stay positive (you always do...and that's the name of a notable 2008 album, by the way...:) ).
