Well it's been 9 days now and things are getting better. After more trips to the hospital (I am up to 6 in the past 8 weeks) I was diagnosed with tendonitis and have to take a complete rest.
Meanwhile the swelling that turned the bottom half of my left leg into something out of the Elephant Man, has gradually moved to my foot, so now I can't put on shoes. Great, eh!
I'll try to update Isaka Sensei's lessons this week, focusing on double yoko-geri.
