I spent some time in the morning heading over to our complex and meeting some of the medical staff. It definitely felt weird pulling into the parking lot and having no idea where the hell to go. Luckily there was a player just getting out of his car at the same time as me that helped me find my way around. I had to fill out some questionnaires on my past surgeries and injuries for the staff. It was a lot more fun a few years ago when I just checked "No" on every question, but unfortunately after last year there are a lot more "Yes" check marks now. After that I received my uniform and equipment, and strange enough I received my favorite number 9 without even asking for it. I guess that's a good sign.
I finished off the day by driving to a local hospital and taking a thirty minute MRI on my hand. Our doctors here just want to make sure that everything is looking good before they let me get out onto the practice field. It was probably my tenth MRI over the past year, and boy do they suck. The hand is a really tough thing to MRI, so I have to lay on my stomach with my arm stretched out over my head. It may have been the most uncomfortable thirty minutes I've ever experienced in my life. I'm just glad I got it over with, and hopefully that will be the last MRI ever.
Finally, before I head out I want you guys to watch this video and witness one of the most amazing things to ever happen on this earth. OK, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit, but I still thought it was pretty cool. For some reason it isn't allowing me to embed the video on here, but click the link below to see it.
