The Ouch that Won't Quit

What started as a fun Frisbee game on the beach, became a summer wrecker for Samuel a few weeks ago. Somehow he ended up with a torn meniscus that needs surgery. He has been patiently hopping around on crutches not being able to do much except swim. He was supposed to leave yesterday for California to play in the AYSO National Games, but tickets were cancelled and all he has to show for his big chance is a t-shirt. 
 Doing nothing has been hard, but he has managed to turn even this into a sports competition and has us all time him for how long he can stay suspended in the air between his crutches. (I should probably have stopped him, but there's only so much you can do.) Today is the surgery and we're off to the hospital. And his attitude is, as always, just fine.
