Here’s a story about a barefoot lawyer.
But no, it’s not recent.
I spent the weekend in the hospital. I was supposed to go in for laparoscopic surgery to have my gallbladder taken out. However, when the surgeon got in there, the gallbladder was so inflamed (and had been so for so long) that it had attached itself to my upper intestine.
So they had to open me up fully and I ended up being in the hospital from Thursday through Sunday.
I haven’t been doing much hiking lately—I’ve just had other things to do and I haven’t made it as much of a priority. But I made it to Hocking Hills last week to do about 8½ miles, and then yesterday I went to Great Seal State Park and did about 5 miles.
And at Great Seal I had something happen that hasn’t happened in along time: I sliced the sole of my foot.
