My ATR isn’t the Only Thing that Need Healing

Just laying here with multiple thoughts going on in my mind and I am glad to know that there are so many people that are going through the same or similar healing process with their Achilles Tendon Rupture (ATR) and there are plenty of valuable resources to aid in this journey. I have joined a couple of ATR Injury groups and communities and they are very helpful in terms of information to look for in all things related to the Achilles Tendon Rupture. Information on the injury itself, information on the type of casts, boots, crutches, socks, wraps. etc… from day 1 all the way out to several years after surgery, have been invaluable.

After reading through so many posts and comments on healing, recovery and rehab, it’s very easy to get caught up in comparing your own healing process and time-line related to the ATR recovery, to that of others going through the same injury. We can easily forget what we should be doing after listening to our doctor and our own body’s response to treatment. Don’t get me wrong, it’s always good to see where you line up with other’s recovery progress, rehab timeline and pictures, however, I have to remind myself that this is God’s way of positioning me to slow down during this season for a reason.

Before my ATR, there was so many things on my plate that needed to be worked on or completed however I would  get caught up in the hustle and bustle of being an entrepreneur , a “Go- Getter” and simply leave projects undone or books unread. Now, the time invested with this ATR injury has me looking at other things that need healing and full recovery. I will use my time of elevating, icing and resting my leg for this deeper purpose to not only heal the physical, but the mental and spiritual component of my well being.

There is so much learning and healing from the neck up that need to take place and for this I am thankful. I mentioned on one of my social media posts, that being a competitive athlete and a Type A personality, enables my mindset to always find a challenge to conquer, a mountain to climb and to try and accomplish it in record breaking time or to at least be way ahead of schedule. However, with my ATR recovery and rehab journey ahead of me, I will allow myself the blessing of learning how to take my time , learning how to utilize and maximize these “slow” periods of time to heal and get better in other areas of my life and prayerfully come out a better man, husband, father, son, brother, leader and follower.

Yes, the internal challenge to be ahead of schedule or break the “healing record” for ATR full recovery, may raise up it’s ambitious head from time to time, however the main thing for all of us going through this injury, is to heal properly and complete and this includes our entire person also. Then we all can get together, challenge and play our games, (football, basketball, tennis, dance, etc…) against each other at full strength, not only physically but also in these other areas as well. I look forward to everyone’s healing progress report and I will continue to encourage you and look for your encouragement as well.
Make it HAPPEN!!!

Surgery or Non Surgery Options Week 1

Surgery or Non Surgery Options

Now that I have had the surgery, my late night thoughts bring me to the question of why would anyone want to go through a ruptured achilles tendon injury and not get it surgically repaired. Yes I researched and read information on how the nonsurgical option is good for someone that is not active or may not be able to afford the surgery. I also became aware that the time for healing is about the same with surgery as it was without surgery.

My doctor discussed the options with me and with not having surgery, the discomfort and not knowing the exact things that could be going on with my foot, was just not in the cards for me. I had the surgery and  the only thing I remember is being wheeled down the hall going to surgery and getting dressed and having the crutches placed under my arms.

What was funny for me is that my wife started telling me what the doctor said (good things) and the physical therapist was also in the room talking to her about some of the exercises that they will put me through. I now realize that the anesthesia is some powerful stuff and now that I am off of it and ready to go home, I’m glad that surgery went well and now it’s time for pain killers, leg elevation and rest.

Did Someone Hit Me in the Back of the Leg?

Hello my friends, I am pretty sure you are reading this because you or someone you may know have just experienced some kind of achilles tendon injury. If so, “Did someone hit me in the back of the leg?”, may be the first question you asked yourself upon injuring your heel. I was playing basketball last week and after getting a rebound and dribbling the ball up court, this is what I initially thought when my achilles tendon ruptured. I even looked back and questioned the guys closest to me as well as the referee regarding getting hit in the back of the leg and they all had the same response which was, “no one hit me in the back of the leg.”

I knew then that it must be my achilles tendon! I remember seeing and hearing stories firsthand from athletes that I played with and against and how they felt like they got hit by a baseball bat, or getting shot by a gun or hit by a ball in the back of the leg. As a former Pro football player in the position of wide receiver, I always thought about how an achilles tendon injury could end my playing career however it was always ankle sprains and hamstring pulls. Ironically my playing career ended over 20+ years ago with a badly dislocated ankle break and not an achilles injury.

Now, let’s fast forward our way to the hospital to get x-rays/mri performed to see the damage, get fitted for a walking boot and schedule the followup visit to go over the options to have surgery or nonsurgical procedures done and get geared up for a long road to recovery.
Be Strong!

An MLK Photo to Remember

An MLK Photo to Remember

I just came in from enjoying a great time at a family reunion and we made sure to take a few tours throughout the city of Atlanta, Ga., to catch in some great and historic landmarks that the city has to offer. My family and I invested time at the Martin Luther King Center and as we toured this historic and meaningful site regarding Martin Luther King Jr. life before and during the Civil Rights Movement.

mlk pj and the girls

We came across a MLK photo that resonated with both my girls and myself, so we decided to line up and mimic the image of Martin Luther King, Jr. (in the background) and make a special family moment out of it. We all shared a laugh with this moment and made the most out of this and other sites we visited in the center.  We got an up close and more realistic view of just how much this man and other people involved in the movement did for mankind!

Why Lebron James is My New Favorite “B”Player

lebron

Well here we are, sitting on the horizon of another NBA Championship and even though the teams are different from last year, there’s one name that remains the same and that name is LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers. For the record, I have never been a die-hard Lebron James fan because of the players ahead of him such as, Dr. J, Magic, Jordan and Kobe for that matter in my opinion, played with such tenacity and strong-willed determination and now I’m coming to terms that LeBron plays that way too he just has a smooth way of making the game look easy. I must say that he is fast rising to the top of the list of top “B” Players and doing it in a totally different way.

Now, I know there are many discussions this time of the sports year about who’s the best player thats ever played, the best in the playoffs, blah, blah, blah… well, if LeBron’s team win the championship within the next few weeks these talks will only get hotter. I mean this guy was born for the game of basketball. When you think of LeBron, of course you think of Basketball and the awesome talent he possesses and displays on a nightly basis with the coast to coast flying dunks, and the “out of nowhere” block shots. The reason he is fast becoming my favorite “B” Player is not for basketball, it’s for Business.

The Business World

In the Business world, LeBron James is moving up the charts when it comes to athletes taking things on another level with business. He sits with Warren Buffet, a Billionaire, friends with Jay Z, Multi-millionaire and a host of other big time business players, that have been instrumental in his knowledge and growth in business and financial matters. Yes he sits with Warren Buffet and does deals with Jay Z and other deep pocketed business brands however what he and a couple of his friends have established is something that we don’t see in the sports world with high profile athletes and their business structure.

lebron and his guys

My main reason is because of what he and a few of his St. Vincent-St. Mary high school friends such as Maverick Carter, Frankie Walker, Jr. and fellow Akron friends Jaron Kanfer and Mike Hurley. Maverick has formed an agent and sports marketing company, LRMR, that manages LeBron as well as a few other athletes and is doing well. I remember the backlash from some of the the media personnel the minute that LeBron announced the plans of allowing his guys to manage him with his career. Statements like, “They are too young with no experience in the business world of the NBA, plus there are more established people in the business to manage the best basketball player in the world with his business matters.” Frankie, Jaron and Mike has started a high-end retail shop for men called Unknwn, which recently had its grand opening. Its first location is in the city’s swanky Aventura Mall. LeBron’s money is behind this venture but, with all of Jame’s time focused on basketball, Walker, Jr. likely will get the chance to run the show.

To LeBron and the guys credit, he just didn’t hand the keys over with his ever growing basketball and business kingdom the minute he signed a  Pro contract. They all had a plan regardless of what was said behind and in front of the scenes. They went and got the necessary education, information and resources to be qualified and make it happen. These guys found a way to bridge the gap from being good friends to doing business together.

End Results!

The long and short of this post is that everyone gets a chance to eat! This is the Blueprint on how one person made a decision to keep the very people that was supportive, the very people that helped and push him with early successes in life both on and off the court, are still a big part of the team. We have so many athletes that have built a team of professionals to assist them with their finances and brand off the court, however you may be hard-pressed to find any top athlete in any field of sport still maintain a good relationship with their close friends in their private setting and still have those same friends in the boardroom making business decisions for success. For this reason alone is why LeBron James is my new favorite “B” Player.
