My training and overuse injury has come along well, but for the last three days I have been trying to survive the most horrid intestinal flu or stomach flu. I don't recall ever being so terribly ill. I am slowly being able to eat something again, though my esophagus is burnt from acid reflux and I can even feel it when I breath. I am much better than the first two days of extremely high fever, crippling headache, and the really distressing other symptoms which I won't go into detail. I will be forever grateful when I am past this. I am going to heal, but I will need to be gentle. I will be so glad when spring and nice weather gets here. Screw crappy, cold, windy weather. The high wind and moderate chill has gotten old. Bring on the sunshine, the green trees, the open windows, the spring time clothes the young ladies wear at the first hint of warm air, bring on the Love, the freedom, and the carefree spirit of youth.
