I've been sick for so long, I'm not sure I remember what it feels like not to be. I've come down with that impossible to diagnose sore throat, hot and cold spells, and hacking cough that takes forever to heal from. I actually did go to the doctor after the first weekend and she did diagnose a sinus infection. I have never had one before and would cheerfully kill to never have another one. I was ready to cut off my own head, waiting for the day it would take the medication to kick in.
So I have entered my third week of this, and have been house suspended the last four weekends. Nuts!! Thinking that I was feeling a tad better, we went for a ride the weekend before last. But 60 miles down the road had me shaking and exhausted on energy. We turned around and went back home.
The only good thing that I can say is that the hammock has been nice. And I have gotten a lot of books read. The bad news is that what little energy I had was devoted to work (stupid!) and home has been horizontal on the sofa. That means I didn't read blogs, didn't write blogs, ignored the world in general because I've missed out on tons of fun things and great weather.
A couple of co-workers and friends of my doctor say that it takes about 4 weeks to get over this crud. I can't believe it, but seems to be true. Sheesh I hope this is the last week. But it also means that I have a ton of catching up to do! Reading about your lives, catching up with your packing plans, work on my own packing and travel plans.
I'm too late for George, but I really hope he has a wonderful time and the roads are smooth and obstacle free. Otherwise, I look forward to catching up with everyone else and maybe getting in a missing ride report or two of my own.
Hope you are all well and healthy staring down the last couple of weeks before vacation (for some of you).
P.S. Even if I am feeling better, this Saturday is supposed to be 99F (37C). I'm not sure how much riding I'm going to get in with those temps... :(
