Day 43: Chest Infections

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Hi all, I thought I would just give a bit of an update on how things are going. Monday last week I did 15 minutes on the elliptical, it was amazing for my motivation and a great way to start the month. I was a bit out of breath afterwards which I just put down to being overweight and having a good, hard workout. I then developed a cough, which got a bit deep before fading. Anyway, long story short, I spent yesterday and the day before in the hospital getting checked for blood clots, getting blood tests done, and all sorts of other very not fun things. Doctors are 98% sure its just a viral infection, but there is still some doubt. So I've been ordered to take it easy for the next week or so and go back to my doctor before I start working out again. All in all I'm breathing much easier now. I have medicines which will clear up the infection and an inhaler for when I start having trouble catching my breath. Now that I'm more relaxed about it all I'm going to make an effort to log into Spark every day again.

I hope everyone is doing well!
