The bowls went well yesterday where I won my first 4 games to make it to the semi-finals. Played well in the semis but went down narrowly to the eventual winner of the title. 5 games at 1.25 hours per game was a big day for me and I was very sore in the feet, ankles and knees plus quite tired both physically and mentally. There is no time to switch off and relax during the singles games so you have to find time to relax during the 3 short breaks in between the 6 games.
Had another operation on my arm this morning where the Doc took another 10mm of skin and a bit of sub layer all around the previous op. This was sent away for further analysis and hopefully will be clear this time. Quite a scar there now with 20 stitches to be removed in 12 days time. Just as well our skin stretches. The internal stitches necessary to tie off exposed veins etc will dissolve eventually. Feeling rather sore and sorry for myself at the moment but self pity is not something I'm really into so will find something non-strenuous to take my concentration elsewhere.
