A Health Scare
After a few big donations, our donations are at $4248 and a total mileage of 2208.08. We are very excited about getting two $1000 donations, one from Midtown Massage and Wellness Center and the other from an anonymous donor. We know who you are!!!
I hit another obstacle this week. I went to Urgent Care for what we thought was a bladder infection. After 2 days of antibiotics, and no improvement, I ended up in the E.R. I had a much more serious infection. They gave me some antibiotics and pain medications. My potassium was also low and I have a kidney stone floating around in my kidney. I am pretty much on bed rest since it is painful to stand and walk. It will probably be a week or so until I am able to train.
Apparently the antibiotics that I need for my infection can cause tendons to weaken and athletes that train after taking them tend to have their Achilles snap. They gave me a weaker dose and if it doesn't improve within the next couple days, I will have to go to the stronger antibiotics. This will mean I will not be able to finish what I have started. We are hoping that my body is able to fight the infection with the meds I am currently on.
Until then, I will be resting, drinking lots of fluids and thinking positive thoughts. Thank you to all who have donated, and I hope to be back at it soon.
