hey before i forget the last post was my 100th!

so i'm walking the dogs on friday arvo with TOH.
start to lag behind.
just couldnt keep up - feel 'unwell'.
go home and just lie down for a few hrs then go to bed.
woke with a fever the next morning.
by the time i had rigors ('shaking chills') in the arvo i figured i had better pop into work and play 'the other role'

dont mind putting this on the blog as everyone at work now knows :(
but i have a urine infection.
yes it is a strange thing for boys to get.
ruth started wondering what my weekend with spoonman and maggot entailed ;)
and mellum have simply concluded that if i am getting girls diseases that i must be a girl.
lets hope that improves my IQ and cleanliness.

was worried for a while i actually had a septicaemia (bugs in the blood).
with temps of 39.4 i was expecting it but thankfully not the case as the bug i had is a common one that can spread from there to the heart valves.
one of those cases of better to know less i think.

had a few weird thoughts over this time.
first was that even when i felt crappest i had felt worse during glasshouse 100 mile in 2003.
the other was (when getting better) how nice it is to feel well again and do simple things like eat!
and how far going for a even short training run is from lying on the couch all day unable to get up or eat or do anything.
puts a lot of things into perspective.

then just to blow me away i watched australian story tonight
diagnosed with lung cancer at 19 dead at 24.
met jessica once or twice.
just terrible.
running is just so unimportant.
it is just a small but hopefully pleasureable part of our lives.

Hope you recover soon Bro. And don't worry about having a girl's disease. A mate of mine once had thrush! In his mouth!

Next thing you'll be telling us you are pregnant. Too bad that American dud beat you to the punch.

Just kidding. Hope you are on the mend.

Thanks for the link. Every now and then we need to be reminded just how lucky we are.
