Day 365: One year and a ridiculous hurdle
Thursday, June 20, 2013
Well, I had wanted to write a victory blog for my one year blog. However. things haven't been so good here in my world.
Last Thursday I had to go to the hospital - I had to go in about three weeks ago for PVD, partial vitreous detachment. What it is is when the gel in your eye on top of your retina detaches. Not a big deal and nothing you can really do about t. the problem is, that it can be a precursor to retinal detachment.
And, last thursday my retina did detach.
Surgery was on Saturday.
Well, here I am. In bed for the fifth consecutive day. The first four days I spent in bed only allowed to look down. No I can lay with my head at an angle; but I'm still not allowed to do anything more difficult than a "strenuous poop."
Yes, that is my work threshold.
Humorous, but ridiculous.
So, I had to cancel my hike this saturday - I got half my deposit back. Now I'm just hoping to be able to get back to training a couple of weeks before the Triathlon. Then it's full speed ahead for Steamtown training.
I'm just praying that I'm able to start running again soon.
So far I haven't gained a crazy amount of weight. I just have to pay attention to what I'm eating. Really, what I eat is about all I can control.
So, fingers crossed, sparklers!
(Please forgive any typos - I typed most of this with my eyes closed. Yeah, I'm not supposed to be reading, either...)
Now, get out there and do something active for me!
