Icing on the cake

I'm getting sick. I just have not been feeling good for the past couple days (lack of appetite, headache) and today my throat started to hurt. I have been around a lot of sick people (not to mention all the time spent in the hospital), so I won't be too surprised if I picked something up. Hopefully it won't amount to much.

Not much else to report here - I've been getting my shots and taking my meds. I have another blood test (and an appointment with my family doctor) tomorrow, so I am hoping for good news.

I planned to hit the gym tonight, but some family stuff came up after work and now I'm curled up in a blanket on the couch with a bowl of soup and I'm not going anywhere. I'll try again tomorrow.

My tentative plan is to try a light run this weekend, which will be four weeks from the accident. My shoulder has been feeling really good and I think (hope) I'm ready.

Ohhhh Marlene I'm with you! I can feel "something" coming on and it totally stinks. We can be miserable together :-) Or maybe we'll get lucky and it will pass with nothing more :-)

Melanie said...

You have gone thru so much... :(. Hugs. Hope you feel better soon... Mine seemed to pass quickly except I don't have a voice left right now... Which is making Jay happy LOL. Rest up

Heather said...

You just can't catch a break! I hope the soup helps and you feel better soon. :)

Hope you shake the ick soon so you can go for that run!

Sonia said...

Geez you're just not getting any relief are you? Hope you don't get a full blown cold. Take it easy with the run you don't want to be too eager and hurt yourself more (creating even more recovery time!).

Feel better soon sweetie! Hopefully we will see you on Sunday!

you poor thing! one hiccup after another. here's hoping it's just a quick, light cold. i started to feel gross on monday with sniffles/sneezes/body ache but it miraculously cleared up by tuesday and i'm hoping that was it. i am still logging miles for you and think about you on each of my runs!!

Man, really, really sucks to be you. Hope you are back to 100% really soon.

Road Warrior said...

You're just getting all the bad stuff out of the way now. When Mark comes home, you'll be healthy, happy and running. Not too much longer!

Feel better soon!

Heres hoping for good news tomorrow. I will be thinking of you!!

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Run Mommy said...

I am sure you want to get back at it but be careful before you jump in to the run. Maybe stick with some cardio that stays away from your injury for just a little while more until you are closer to 100% . You really don't want to risk further injury and longer delays. :) Feel better soon!

I hope it doesn't amount to a huge illness - you've been through enough!

teacherwoman said...

That "sick" crap is definitely going around. Definitely take the time to REST and get it out of your system. no fun.

Denise said...

Man, you've definitely had a rough couple of weeks!! I hope the doctor appt goes well tomorrow. Get some rest and hopefully you can get out there for a run this wknd.

Toni said...

I hope you feel better soon! When I start to feel like I am getting sick I drink EmeregenC for a few days and that usually helps.
I hope your run goes well.

aron said...

yikes, just one thing after another :( it will be over soon!!!

tfh said...

You're really being tested, eh? I'm guessing your hubby feels pretty lousy that he can't be there to support you through all this. Good luck with your appointment today!

Brian said...

Being sick is no fun, hope whatever you have goes away. Have an AWESOME easy run this weekend!

D10 said...

Oh man, you have your fair share lately. Hope you feel better soon. Sending some positive vibes your way.

Blyfinn said...

Wow, you can't seem to get a break can you. I hope that the cold isn't much.

X-Country2 said...

Sheesh, what a rough month. Get well soon, and take care of yourself.

Amanda said...

Bless your heart, feel better soon!

littlesack said...

this is not your month!
Good luck with the light jog, but play it safe. Stop while you feel good, it'll ensure you feel fine the next day.

ps_blood work? what did I miss?

Laura said...

hope all is well. Your attitude is better than mine - I have been wiped out with a cold for only 4 days and am losing my mind.l
