Off Restriction.....Think I Learned Anything?
Yesterday's appointment with the neuro group resulted in a February appointment for an angiogram of the narrowed vessels in my brain and a lifting of the exercise restrictions. The restriction had included that I relax - not doing anything to elevate my blood pressure or pulse until I was cleared of imminent danger. Considering our life it was a pretty funny restriction to be on - go ahead and laugh. But I did it and they decided I am not about to have a stroke or similar event and that I could resume regular activities without blows to the head or hard neck jerks. Which means no sparing at TKD but plenty of practice for weapons and forms.
Steam and I celebrated with a Ssahng Nat (AKA kama) warm-up using plastic ladles....I really do need to get some curtains up in the kitchen - I am sure the neighbors are seriously worried when they see us wielding kitchen implements in such strange ways......I dont think the restriction helped at all. I'm still as unpredictable as I was before they enforced it.
