Yesterday I received the final dose of IV antibacterial. Two weeks of daily injection were finally over. Still have to take oral drug for two more weeks. My blood is full of antibiotics.
I really want to visit London again and run the London Marathon. However, if my body is not ready, I won’t force anything. Doctors said that the damage to the joints could take a long time to fully heal.
It’s been a long fight, which I hope will be over soon. I will recover and run again. Hardest part of all this is not being able to walk, which until now has been two weeks already.
If you want to do something, do it now. Want to eat something, eat it as soon as you can. Want to travel somewhere, go now. Want to do something for someone, don’t wait. You don’t know if you will be able to do it tomorrow.
Had dinner on Thursday with Dad, Mom, Nan, Lung Rin, Pa Dum, and Pa Tui at Sompong. They took care of me while I was in the hospital. It was a birthday dinner. Today is my 35th birthday. My simple wish of waking up without pain didn’t come true this morning. I did manage to go up the stairs to the second floor, very slowly and carefully using the handrail. Small steps.
Three keys to my happiness are workout, nutrition, and rest. I can’t run, but am getting plenty of sleep and eating well. Two out of three ain’t bad.
