Adam usually spends his birthday skiing up at Mountain High because you get to ski free on your birthday. He always looks forward to it. Well he hasn't it done it in a few years because 4 years ago I got a call to meet him at the Emergency Room because he was headed there with a busted shoulder. He had a bad fall skiing and it ended up that he had ripped all the tendons in his shoulder. Ouch!! To say the least, he was in alot of pain for many weeks and actually still has pain in it from time to time. The shoulder will never be the same. So here is what he looked like last time he went skiing on his birthday, this was taken the day after the accident. Not looking so good, I believe he was pretty drugged up at the time.
So when he told me that he was going to go skiing this year on his birthday, I was a little concerned. Not only was he going skiing but he was going night skiing after a long day at work! I told him that he better take it easy and reminded him of how much he hated being injured. Well, I am happy to report that he made it home safely and I received no phone calls from the Emergency Room. He had a great time and it felt good for him to get back on skiis. In this picture he looks much better and he was able to enjoy his birthday so much more:)
