Man have I had a rough week. The elbow is healing slowly and is still really tender. All attempts at swimming have been futile, needless to say I'm a little concerned. Then at the end of last week I came down with a UTI that wouldn't go away despite all the homeopathic remedies that were suggested. After getting fed up with peeing blood I dragged myself into urgent care late this evening to get set up with antibiotics. Woke up this morning with swollen tonsils, luckily they tested at urgent care and it's not strep. So, since it's not strep, I'm pretending it's not happening. That leaves the elbow, and letting the antibiotics kick in. I have a recommendation on someone to go see about the elbow. He actually looked at it briefly at the gravel pond Saturday and said it looks a lot like "tennis elbow". T-riffic (with a capital T).

So last week I asked you all to send healing thoughts. Well, I need you to think a little harder, I'm in dire need now.

It's the middle of the season, one of my biggest races is in 6 days and I'm a mess. It's disheartening, at best.

Troy is SICK AS A DOG as well. It's like a flu thing, sore throat, body aches, etc. I finally went and got him some Theraflu and I opted for the PM variety to knock him out for awhile so he can rest.

Many thanks to my mom who was so sweet to have dinner delivered at our house this evening. She sure knows how to cheer a girl up. Thanks mom!

Annie is fine, happy as a jay bird, peeing and pooing on the potty like a rock star, so that's been a relief!

I'm holding together, but it's dicy. I want to take care of Troy like a good wife, but I hurt too. I'm frustrated, I'm mad, and I'm ready for whoever is kicking me while I'm down to lay the (insert favorite cuss word) off.
