Waiting Room

I am at my doctor’s this morning hoping to finish off whatever I have had for seventeen days.

Many thanks to ITP-Readers Allan, Barb, and Debbie who forwarded me the story about the parasite. While it certainly has sucked to be sick these past weeks, especially to the point to where I am not headed to Iowa today, it is a little comforting to know that I am not the only one who has been in misery.

Now I have to hope that my doctor agrees and gives me the medication to kill this goddamn thing.

    Well, a friend has been taking his wife for treatment to a hospital in Houston and they have ebola warning signs up there, so at least you aren’t at risk for that- I hope.

    I looked for a pic from yesterdays best young rider presentation. The little Columbian was standing on the top step of the podium and still wasn’t as tall as the podium girls. That just cracked me up!

    Today, a finish on Plateau de Belle, and last I heard it had started to rain. Lovely.

    Barb, I haven’t discussed spending next Saturday evening at the Garage Mahal with Debbie, but I figure I can still get the code from you even if you’re in Iowa.

    What are you riding this weekend Paulie?


  2. Barb says:

    Somewhere just south of Nashville. 3 hours down…. Way too many left.
    Not that I want you to have a parasite, but I hope that’s it, so you can get better.

  3. Steve says:

    What parasite and where did it come from?

  4. Debbie says:

    Isn’t it nice when multiple friends think of you when they see a news story about diarrhea?

    Hope you are feeling better quickly! Wish the story had broken last week …

    My healing from falling seems to be going the wrong way. I know you see an orthopedic for broken bones, but do they also treat bone bruises?

    It’s the parasite all the cool kids are getting Steve. Parasites are the new tattoos. 🙂

    Here’s a link to one of the articles sent to me.


    My doctor thinks that I am over whatever I have, but since he hadn’t heard of this parasitic outbreak locally, relented and gave me a prescription for Bactrum anyway (just in case).

  6. I have to admit, sometimes I think about quitting blogging and then I realize what a valuable resource it is for me.

    I hope that your healing starts improving, Debbie.

    Oh, the weather in parts of France looks horrible.

    And, for all of my problems things could be worse. I heard from my mother this morning that one of my cousins succumbed to cancer today.

  7. Oh, I forgot. Steve, I have no riding plans for this weekend yet. Weather permitting I should do something as an homage to Barb and Allan.

  8. Steve says:

    OK, let me see what the mizzus has planned and we can work something out.

  9. Barb says:

    Glad you got the script, better to be safe than sorry.
    Just crossed over into Kentucky. Hope we can resist th bourbon calling.

  10. Barb says:

    Made it to St. Louis. 4-4.5 hours left.
