Starting Fresh Again

Saturday, May 09, 2015

My chronic cough that lasted about 2 months is finally gone! It took 3 antibiotics to clear it up! The last antibiotics, the doctor said to not weightlift or jog since it can damage or loosen tendons. Then I developed swelling and weakness in my left arm and hand. I was sent to the main hospital for a Doppler test to check for blood clots - which they did not find.

Went on vacation to Las Vegas during that "Fight of the Century". My son bought his airline tickets but his friends didn't and he was going to go solo. My parents and sister lives there so I decided to go to Las Vegas to see my family. I refused to go to the fight. My son had an amazing time though.... He crashed a celebrity party and met a lot of famous people, with photos to show! Of course in Vegas, there is tons of food and free drinks.

I am back home now and the swelling is gone. I've gained 9 pounds since early March when I got sick. I am back in the "obesity" category, boo! I feel all jiggly again. My plan is to begin walking to re-strengthen my muscles and then ease into jogging. I may even pick up swimming....

Okay, here I go again......
