Getting Better

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Hopefully, this infection that i have continues to clear up. It is amazing the progress that it is making even since yesterday. Thanks to those of you who have prayed for me as I try to recover from this inconvenience. Hopefully, I will be able to get back on the road this week, and i will count this staph as a bad memory.

Blessings

Taking it easy

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Iwas unable to run today due to this mess that we have been dealing with since earlier last week. Looks like i'll be taking a few days break from running and exercise in general.

This staph infection is one irritating mess. It seems to be getting better with the anti-biotics that i am taking along with the constant changing of the bandage, along with about three epson salt baths per day.

The main thing is that i don't want to spread this mess to any of the members of my family. Of course this thing would come to make its presence known the weekend of our oldest daughter's birthday.

Looks like i'll head back to the doctor on Monday and see what the test results were from the culture they took, and see if they want me to continue on this medication or do something else.

Prayers are much appreciated.

  


Back to the Doc

Friday, August 26, 2011

After going to the doctor a few days ago, the sore on my upper thigh was still not healing, so i went back to the doctor again. It seems that i don't have a bug or spider bite, but now i have a staph infection. Yuck!!! They put me on some stronger anti-biotics and gave me some helpful advice. i won't go into the gorey details, but it was a painful experience.

They wanted me to try to allow the anti-biotics to reduce the swelling of the infection, rather than having to drain it. For the first time in a while it is actually starting to feel a little better.

I hope that this stuff is working.

    I hope this heals quickly for you. At least it doesn't sound like it is impacting your running schedule! Keep Sparking and have a great weekend!

Encouraging News

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Last night we received an encouraging phone call from a church. Please pray for our family as we enter the next stage of dialogue with a church in central MO that wants me to consider being their senior Pastor.

Not many details to discuss yet, but we would greatly appreciate your prayers.

Blessings.

Running in the Dark

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

My wife and I headed out for our run in the dark this morning. Despite being a little more muggy than usual, the run went pretty well. I am still amazed at the progress she has been making these past several months. Her unconquerable spirit and attitude are just two of the many reasons why I love her.

Hope your Wednesday has been a blessing.

    Good for you!

All of my running is in the dark, it is too hot here when the sun is up, and then in the winter it is dark when I'm not at the office. It is so cool to hear that you run together.
