Mid week blog - update

Thursday, May 12, 2016

Howdy all

So I haven't been posting my regular Saturday blog posts, scale is still broken and I still have not gotten a new one. The good news on that is that I was at the doctor's office yesterday and got on the scale and when adjusting for clothing, was right about the same as the last time I got a real number on the scale. So that's pretty good.

My back is finally feeling better, doesn't feel like it's going to give out on me at this point in time.

Also, got the news regarding surgery on my shoulder; it is scheduled for Monday May 16 !!! After talking with the doctor yesterday it seems that after the surgery my left arm may be immobilized for 6 weeks! I will be going to physical therapy and receiving passive range of motion therapy during those 6 weeks. After that I will begin moving my arm myself in therapy. There's no telling how long before I am back to 100%. It's going to be a few months at least.

On a more personal note I have met a woman :) I did meet her on a dating site and I have spent most hours of my day exchanging emails and chatting with her. As I have told my friends "she's not from around here", she's actually Russian. She is a fitness trainer, a model and a ring girl for Russia's version of the UFC, M-1 Global. Her name is Angelica Anderson (also spelled Anzhelica) and she has over 443,000 followers on Facaebook. I'm a lucky boy!

This a tame picture of her, I thought best to keep it PG here :)

I was shocked when I figured out who she was so I assumed that someone was posing as her on a dating site just to mess with guys like me. So I asked her to take a picture of herself holding a piece of paper with my name written on it. A little while later I received this picture of her, with no make up on, holding a paper with my name on it. Unbelievable!

I don't know where this will go obviously, but I'm hoping my shoulder will be healed up enough for me to fly to St. Petersburg Russia while it's still a little warm there!!! However it works out, I am "over the moon" right now, a feeling that is very unfamiliar with me.

So, that's my life right now. Thanks for reading.

    You sound so much happier and optimistic. Glad to hear that good things are happening for you! Please keep us posted on your surgery, and Angelica, too! Like another poster commented, I have both a friend and an acquaintance horror stories involving abroad relationships that began online, but won't go into gory details. You're a smart guy, It sounds like you're being cautiously optimistic.
    Good luck with surgery and keep smiling!!!!

    Yay... Surgery so soon! That's awesome! Hope they can fix it and you have a super speedy recovery. emoticon

    My personality is usually skeptical and cautious and I worry about friends, so I'm going to give you my two cents. I've personally worked with a man that was burned by an overseas romance and lost lots of money and was just about married to her before realizing it. Please be super cautious and careful with all the elaborate scams people come up with now. Also, a relationship that far apart usually gets to be pretty spendy. Just my thoughts emoticon

    If she is for real with no hidden agenda, I AM super happy for you!

    Hope you're having a amazing spring! emoticon

    May 16th...Wow! That's fast, but that's good! that's some recovery period but well worth it to be "normal"! I am sure you will be crossing off the days on the calendar for 6 weeks...being without the use of an arm / hand is harder than we think! Good Luck...will be sending thoughts and prayers for a successful surgery and recovery!
    Ok...the elephant in the room...the new lady! I am happy you met someone, but I am still skeptical and question it...have just heard so many stories of scams, etc. Just be careful and you have plenty of time to check it out before acting on it in any major way! I don't mean to be a "downer"...just be careful and check it out slowly! What is it she's looking for she can't get in Russia? Especially with her background of being a fitness trainer, model, etc? You're right to question everything and Be Safe!
    Again, best wishes on your surgery!

    Please take care, photos like that can be faked there is a photo shop mod designed to do that, but she may be employed by scammers and might take a couple of hundred custom photos a day. I used to do some scam baiting, and it looks like dating scam

    Well that is a shock, the surgery I mean :), so soon!!! Hope all goes well and with the therapy you will get a good range of motion.
    Congrats on meeting Angelica, you must be very happy!!!
