day 2195 – walk in clinic

as much as i didn’t want to go back to work after a long weekend, i was less happy to be spending three and a half hours at a walk in clinic waiting for both the doctor and pharmacy. the mosquito bite flared up so bad overnight i didn’t get any sleep. i got up in the middle of the night to apply and reapply the hydrocortisone. when i woke up, my leg was so red and swelled up it no longer looked like a leg. the doctor prescribed the same antibiotics as last time. i guess that’s what i get for not finishing it last time

day 2185 – hydrocortisone

the mosquito bite from yesterday got so out of hand that i couldn’t concentrate on anything. nurse friend said i may have cellulitis and should see a doctor at emergency, but instead i rushed to walmart and settled for some topical cream with hydrocortisone. i even pulled out of hockey last minute because it was burning hot. i felt horrible for staying in on such short notice especially when it’s the start of playoffs for civil war

say 2109 – ankle update

inflammation and infection seems to have gone down but it’s a no go for hockey. i jammed my foot and ankle pretty bad at the tail end of training yesterday, which makes me believe i am in dire need for the ultrasound or mri. it frustrates me because the fact i actually got my foot around on my butterfly twist attempt was also the cause of the jam. i was hoping i would get in earlier from cancelations, but doesn’t look like i’ll get my results before i leave for my trip

day 2107 – swollen infection

when i look down at my ankle, it’s safe to say there’s something really wrong with it. i got myself into my chiropractor because i thought my ankle was locked, jammed or sprained of some sort, turns out i needed to go to hospital more. the size of my ankle is twice the size of my normal and there’s random bruising on my ankle bone not to mention it’s burning inside. he suggested there’s an infection and get it checked out as soon. me being me, i checked the emergency wait times and declined. i wasn’t going to spend six hours at the hospital, but booked in to see my family doctor tomorrow morning

day 1653 – juicingĀ 

blending my banana kiwi almond milk smoothie at my desk. just the sound of it already makes me feel like i’m having something ultra healthy, which i won’t deny. the main reason i’m having this instead of my normal grapes is so i can have some solids and some liquids in my body. funny when people were looking around searching for the sounds that my blender was making

day 1651 – amoxicillin

the toothache got so unbearable it ruined my mood for any kind of gym time and i ended up at the dentist office. the antibiotics was meant to be a temporary fix for some kind of infection and if it doesn’t get better, it has to be reopened. guess i’ll look forward to tomorrow to makeup my heavy leg day. this better not persist and make me miss another workout day cause i’m already really upset to have postponed it on back to back days. the upside is this is another forced rest day which also forces me to sleep early 

day 541 – dry cough

woke up not being able to speak and only sounded more like human an hour upon waking up. been coughing my lungs out in the morning, good thing it got a bit better as the day went on or i’d end up with a really bad throat infection. i almost finished the whole bag of ricola and some strepsil in one day accompanied with some honey water and some sort of chinese cough candy
