And another thing happened…

If I was not frustrated enough…

Last night my oldest cat Fluffy jumped on me my while I had my legs up on a foot rest. She normally does this and wants me to pet her for ten to fifteen minutes then she walks back down my legs and sleeps between or on my feet on the foot rest. With that being said, this time, however, when she walked down my legs to the foot rest one of her legs slipped. One of her claws clawed deep into the lower part of my right calf close to the ankle, but not quite. I freaked out and it was bleeding profusely. I made it to my tub to get it cleaned with the shower head and dabbed rubbing alcohol on it and also poured it onto the wound. I wanted peroxide, but I found out later it was a good thing I could not find it in my house because it will kill the good bacteria as well as the bad. I bandaged it and even showered with it this morning. I had someone who is a nurse look at it today. I got clean bandages and alcohol wipes to clean it again and bandage it again because it was bleeding again through out the day I guess or it happened after I had my shower with it on. I limp a little bit cause it hurts a little bit, but it hurt like a mofo last night when I put that rubbing alcohol on it when it was fresh. And now I can not go to the gym or exercise for awhile until this heals.

My cats are out to get me and sabotage me…

Hospital Stay…

Sorry, I have not blogged in awhile, but I had been admitted into a hospital for the past week or so. I was a bit under the weather before, but then it really got to me Tuesday evening going into Wednesday morning last week. I did not go into the hospital because of my diabetes or anything I did (thank goodness!). I initially went in because of a very bad viral stomach bug that wrecked havoc on my whole immune system and body. It was so bad that it rendered my heart so much stress it was giving me chest pains every time I breathed in. I could go on about the health care system and my whole journey through the insurance process and the two hospitals that I stayed at, but I am going to spare everyone the details of that horror story for another day. Today I am back at work, still recovering slowly, but yet recovering and hopefully after my follow up visit with my regular physician on Friday I can get back to training next week? But, all that I have been through took me down a couple of notches and I think I have to start over….again.

 

This is frustrating.

 

P.S. I also have gotten new books in the mail while I was away at the hospital. Another blog post about them later or tomorrow.
