...5 hundred steps back!
Man I have been sick for about a month. Once I got over the stupid cold I was subjected to cough of doom! Try exercising when you cant breathe, I did and I thought I was going to die. Not a good idea. So my workouts have been crap and I have been eating more to keep up my energy because I am that dumb to think that I am going to feel better by eating more! The reason why I am sluggish is not because of lack of food but sickness! So I gained 2lbs, blah.
Despite being sick I still dragged my butt to the gym and coughed and blew my nose through all my workouts and I have been back on diet and then...........
..........a third surgery hangs above my head. WHAT, REALLY? I saw my surgeon today and despite my 4 months of physical therapy and no running and no doing anything fun I am still having ankle issues. Great. So apparently I am not allowed to run for a year or I will blow up my tendon and then STILL require surgery but what is this? if if doesn't get better I also need surgery! I also have an MRI next week because I have a meeting tomorrow that I cant reschedule (one good thing about the US). Apparently more steroid injections are in my future with lots of reassessments. Next Friday I have an appt with my surgeon to go over the results and then we discuss surgery. Really a third surgery all because the first one was messed up? Seriously? Another surgery means my leg wasted and it took 2 years to build it back up and it is still not there. Another surgery means months of physical therapy not to mention no gym. I have been doing all my physical therapy and I work on my ankle all the time and still nadda.
So now I play the waiting game and good thing I am going to Hawaii where I wasn't going to drink but I think I am going to just checkout for 4 days.
