well...hmmm...

...not much I can do now I guess...

Just got back from Urgent Care a few hours ago. Felt OK today at school, but the nasty cough was not getting any better, so I thought I'd better have someone take a look-see.

3 chest x-rays later, it's offical:

Bronchial pneumonia.

Sara = sad.

So I'm forced to take another day off work and a whole week off of training.

Poop.

I wish I could think of something enlightening to say, but all I can think is,

Poop.

On the way home, though, at 6:27 pm, I noticed that the sky was not pitch black like it usually is at that time. In the west, the sky was still a bright blue, with some greenish-yellowish to the clouds. It sort of glowed a bit, and for some reason it made me feel a little better.

All is not lost--things could be much worse, and the days are even getting longer, which is good news.

So, I will be living vicariously through you guys training hard out there--know that you're lucky to be doing it! Enjoy your workouts, and I'll be back with ya as soon as I can.

Take care, and stay healthy!!!

A day off from work - no big deal.

A week off from training - sucks big time.

Get healthy

Well Poop!

Get some good poop then.

whole week off training is better than whole month of training due to training with bronchial pneumonia.

It happens. Rest up. You'll be back to your normal healthy self before you know it! Until then... enjoy the time off (if that's possible with bronchial pneumonia)! :)

Big pile of steaming POOP. Better now than in the middle of summer. I'll keep you filled in on the action at the pool 8>)

Wil said...

Oh NOOOOO! OK, but when you come back, be sure to take it slowly so you don't wind up back in the middle of all this again.

This will cheer you up, you're totally featured on the podcast this week ;)

Yikes!! Sorry to hear this!! But take heart - one week in the whole scheme of things isn't too crucial. And it's January, not May. Keep your head up and your eye on the prize. Take care.
