My Eye Injury: A physical and emotional battle

This article is a detailed account of the past 90 days of my life.  A big part of me wants to forget everything that happened to me over the past three months, but something inside of me wants to tell the story.  I warn you, that every time I go into detail about what I actually went through, people squirm and shy away, so this is my forum to get it all out.  It was the darkest, lowest part of my life to date and I am still only just collecting myself to re-establish some normalcy for my family and business.  I returned to work just a few weeks ago, under three weeks after my fourth eye surgery in two months after I was struck in the right eye with a hard orange floor hockey ball on August 19th, 2014.

My wife and three children were away at our family cabin.  I had returned to work for the week after an amazing almost 3 week holiday, but I only made it to Tuesday before my world changed.  Earlier in the summer a client had told me about a regular pick up floor hockey game at a nearby community centre.  I went a few times before my vacation, but I was the new guy amongst a group that had been playing together for a while.  The only guy I somewhat knew was my client who had told me about the game.

The game was social, but competitive.  Every guy had a different level of protective gear, but most did not have any form of eye protection.  I happened to have my squash goggles with me, but forget them in the car because I was running late.  I had never worn eye protection playing floor hockey before, but was definitely considering it with this group; unfortunately I never got the chance.  I decided to jump right into the game and was having a great time.  I scored five goals in the first two games before it happened.  I ended up in the corner just off to the side of net.  I turned back to follow the ball when I saw a split second of an orange ball flying right at my face.

Envision Physiotherapy becomes a Multidisciplinary clinic

This post is just a quick update of what I have been up to in the last
two months and my excuse for not updating this site as I had intended.  I
promise there is lots more content to come.

In the last three months I have:

  • Located and negotiated a great 1600 sq ft space on South Granville to move Envision Physiotherapy into (#201-3077 Granville St., Vancouver, BC)
  • Met with and built a team of some of the best allied health
    professionals in Vancouver and arranged for them to join us in our new
    space
  • We now have registered massage therapists, experienced Pilates instructors and a veteran Kinesiologist all under the same roof EnvisionPhysio.com
  • My wife had our third baby in three years.  I now have two boys and 1 girl
  • In the middle of all this my partner fell sick and hasn’t been able to work for 6 weeks
  • My receptionist quit and I interviewed and hired a new one
  • I hired a new physio named Tony Gui
  • Renovated the new clinic space to be ready for November 28th, 2011
  • We redid our website EnvisionPhysio.com

 

This is officially the home stretch.  We are moving everything into
the new clinic this weekend and will be up and running on Monday,
November 28th, 2011.

Starting next week I will get back to editing videos and writing
posts for this site.  Please feel free to leave comments on the blog
with feedback.  There is lots of content on here, but much more to come!
