A short to do list:
I have an old separated shoulder that never healed correctly, a torn rotator cuff in the other shoulder, knees that ache, herniated discs, sciatica, a torn thumb ligament… basically I’m your average man in his late thirties.
I want to hold my child.
That’s exactly what I told my physical therapist.
I want to hold my child. And teach her how to hit a tennis ball, shoot a free throw, a proper lay-up; teach him how to catch a fade, take him to a yankees game with our mitts in hope of a dinger coming our way. I want to carry her on my shoulders through Times Square, hold his hand as we walk through the Bronx Zoo.
Get healthy. You’ll need it.
