i need a doctor

"i'm about to lose my mind
You’ve been gone for so long
i’m running out of time
i need a doctor
call me a doctor
i need a doctor, doctor
to bring me back to life" (Dr. Dre ft. Eminem & Skylar Grey - I Need a Doctor, 2011)

a doctor can only do so much. i'm both body and soul. however,
i'm off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz
, er i mean i'm off to see the doctor at Montfort Hospital. the doctor can fix my body, but only a priest can absolve me of my sins. therefore, since i'll be in, i'll be stopping into St-Pat's for my weekly check up, in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

remember this? that's right, almost a year + half later, i'm due for my knee surgery (tomorrow) - left knee that is! my old squash/ping-pong injury has knocked the wind out of me but i'm not down for the count just yet! indeed, i just saw that there is a local gym here in my new neck of the woods, along with two squash courts! i look forward to my knee healing so that i can get back on track! pray for me tomorrow - that surgery goes well, that both body and soul can heal.

pray also for all pilgrims enjoying WYD2011 in Madrid, Spain! it brings back good memories of WYD2008 in Sydney, Australia! peace.
