My husband is a self proclaimed extreme sport addict. He’s been skateboarding and surfing since he was a kid. I don’t think he’ll stop, until he’s unable to stand up on his own two legs! He’s broken multiple bones from his adventures and it doesn’t slow him down.
Some times I like to join him on his milder adventures, like when we went zip-lining in Mexico, but usually I just play the photographer and hope he doesn’t get hurt.
Just the other day he tried to skateboard in an 8 foot bowl. For those of you who don’t know much about skateboarding, this is a pool like structure with walls that are 8 feet high! It sounds a little crazy for a 40 something year old right? What do you think happened? You’re right. He broke a rib. The worst part is that you can’t do anything for a broken rib, to help it heal faster, except take it easy. He just has to put up with the pain, day after day, until it gets better. Add to that the fact that he has Arthritis from old broken bone injuries and he’s pretty much sore all the time lately. I’ll never forget the time he walked home from the skate park on a broken leg! He was in a lot of pain that week I can tell you!
One of the reasons we love to travel to warmer climates is because it helps with Arthritis. The heat makes us both feel better and takes the aches away. Unfortunately, we always have to come back to life in Canada, where we have to live with the aches and pains from October to April! What would my husband do if he had 12 hours pain free? Well I think you know by now that he would use that time to the fullest of his abilities and have fun! This is part of what makes him a great father. No one wants a grumpy, sad and sore dad! He constantly motivates our family to appreciate life, laugh often and take risks! After all, we never know what tomorrow will bring.
Did you know that ALEVE® relieves the daily pain and stiffness of arthritis and works for up to 12 hours? We’re going to need this more and more the older Trevor gets! These primary symptoms of arthritis result in significant disability and cause us to reduce our activity. Oh no! ALEVE® is an over-the-counter pain reliever indicated to quickly and effectively relieve aches and pains due to arthritis, headache, muscular aches, toothache or backache. Sounds good to me!
