Injury

Stepping on a Sea Urchin

Last week, I blogged about Angel’s medical emergency, but I’m overdue to fill you in on mine . . .

As regular readers may recall, the end of July was a fun, but particularly hectic, time for me. During a brief lull one Sunday, Beau went out diving (free-diving and spear-fishing) for the day, and I decided to treat myself, too.
