In a March post I mentioned being happy with a 7.5 minute mile I ran. Funny how quickly you can end up back at square one. I might be at a new record low now. For the past three weeks, I have had a fever, cough, and other cold-like symptoms, pretty much without break. (Wiped out my PTO for the year). I am getting very little sleep at night. And my abdomen is a source of much pain. I think it is primarily due to the coughing, but not certain. My Gastroenterologist (ughh! that's the kind of thing really old people say!), started me on Pentasa, and a hard hitting, broad spectrum antibiotic. We also drew lots of blood for lots of tests, but so far no answers. If I am not improving dramatically by Monday, I get to start hunting for an internal medicine specialist.
Enjoy your health, and don't take it for granted. It can slip away quite unexpectedly.
