|Christine, me, and Linny at Skydive Snohomish|
Linny was really surprised to see me, after I had left her a voice mail with a message that I would try but made no promises. This morning I felt so much better that Smart Guy and I headed to the DZ in hopes that I would be able to make at least one skydive before realizing I was really too sick. Linny got Christine and me to join her on the second load of the day for a wonderful three-way skydive that will live in my memory for a long time. I then got myself on a jump with Hank, a fun guy in our age range, and after packing and getting ready for a second jump, I found myself on a fun two-way with him that had every sign of me being completely well. But on the descent in freefall, my ears complained and when I opened my canopy, oh my, I realized it was NOT okay. Felt like an icepick in my right ear. After landing and thanking Hank for the wonderful jump, I asked Smart Guy if we could just go home.
But actually, I had two wonderful skydives to add to my memories, and now I'm home writing about it. And tomorrow I will rest, I promise! However, next week I might be able to get two hikes in before calling it a season...
