Freedom!!! (sorta)

Yay!

The Doctor has declared me free of pneumonia!
I have permission to gradually work back in to my cycling.
I probably won't officially start back until Saturday (for my commute into work), but may start by taking a few "victory laps" around the block when it stops raining.

I still have a residual cough (yay...more drugs ) so I'll apologize in advance to anyone silly enough to ride my wheel as I cough and spit.

I hope to be riding soon so I don't gain back the 12 pounds I lost whilst being sick.

Now I think I'll take another lie down, and think of fair weather tomorrow....

Good News.
Had the stuff twice.
Took me 6 months to get completely over it each time.

WooHoo! That's great news Jtgyx




I'd bet this was all Doug's fault all along.

I've actually been thinking....that with all my misfortune this year, I should go back and leave an assortment of water bottles on the path to appease the GREAT AND POWERFUL DOUG. (May his slither never kink)

Outstanding! Looks like you are going to beat me by a week. I have one more PT session to measure range of motion and I see the Doc next Friday.

I need a new avatar. I've been walking around for almost a week now.
