I saw a doctor with sports medicine knowledge this past Thursday. He recommended that I cease running and stay off the stationary bike for one more week. The doctor gave me an RX for a medication. I didn't fill it right away wanting the injury to heal naturally. I have a lot of allergies and hate taking new medicines. By Saturday, I decided to take the medication. I'd done a Leslie Sansone Power mile workout tape and the hip on the troubled leg hurt a lot and wasn't getting better with ice.
The medicine is helping a lot. It's in the same class of medications as Celebrex. It's not a narcotic. I no longer remember that I even have a leg. I'm looking forward to running again.
I received some terrible news Saturday morning while I was at work. I received one of those 3:30 AM calls that no one wants to receive. An uncle I was close to was killed on his bicycle by a hit and run driver. Today, I received some more bad news from a close family member. It is nothing that I can post on a blog. It was a terrible holiday for me. I spent a lot of time weeping. I am confident that I will see my uncle in heaven and I look forward to seeing him again.
1 Cor. 15:54, 55
54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
55 “O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
