Hello Play Pals,
I'm still fighting to return from a kidney illness that's not quite over yet, and hope to be able to develop and launch some new activities sometime this fall, including:
a few leisure bike rides including another Victorian Homes Ride in Alameda
a group swim or two (especially when our really warm summertime starts in September and October)
another Danz Urasoff before the Thanksgiving holiday
and a beach volleyball party on Crown Beach in Alameda.
Of course, there will be other suggestions we can implement, and it would be great to have your input.
I have my final scheduled surgery on August 16th and hope to be fully recovered by mid-to-late September. It has been very frustrating to be on medical disability and restricted from everything I normally take for granted: driving, active play, doing normal chores around the house, etc.
And not just the physical toll hurts here... the fiscal toll has been daunting as well, but with help from friends and just being plain frugal, I've managed to weather the storm so far. (Just wait until the final bills start rolling in from my emergency surgery 2 weeks ago and the final surgery in August.
The numbers are numbing to say the least, but as long as I pay something every month, and it will take years and years to pay it all off, at least I'm alive and that's what counts.
Going from just "alive" to "well" is the goal here, and once I'm feeling well enough to play again, I'll be back to join you all once more in a few short months.
If you'd like to contact me, you can e-mail me at [email protected] or use the internal e-mail within our network here (member to member -- click on my member profile and click on "e-mail").
Remember, if you have some new suggestions on activities you and others might enjoy sharing with other Play Pals, please let me know and together, we can coordinate and make it happen!
