AE had his gall bladder removed yesterday at about 8 pm. It had stones and sludge and gross gall things in it.
Today he saw some other patients walking the halls outside his room.
And he thought they were walking pretty slow.
Slower than he would walk. So he got up and sauntered out into the hall. And he started to bend over towards the floor.
Kirin hustled out to see if he needed help. It had been just over 12 hours since he had his operation.
Dad told her he was just getting down into the starting position. Thankfully he didn't get into a full four point stance, but he did bend over there and waited for Kirin to start him.
And then he took off. He walked 17 laps of his floor, lapping the slowest. He had Kirin start timing his laps so he could compete with himself.
And so as Zoe snores in the bed next to me, her grandfather is snoring somewhere. They will not go like they're supposed to. You cannot forget to fight. And if fight is in you, it doesn't leave. Ever.
