Thanks for the message about Hubs and thankfully his test came back negative on a blood clot in his leg. Having a scare about someone you love really puts things into perspective. Bad as the global economy is now, health is still the most important thing, and us as a running community are doing the right thing to keep ourselves healthy.
Hubs will still have to do more tests to look into the Baker's cyst, but his doctor said he can run as long as there is no pain (none now), and he should ice and elevate to help shrink the cyst and jeep it under control.
I also had my own mini health scare this weekend. I just got back from a visit with my doctor to discuss some blood work I had done in the summer. Yes, you read that right. The blood work was done in August as part of my annual physical. I was super annoyed/worried when I picked up a phone message at 4pm this past Friday to call my doctors office to discuss my test results. I had long since put the blood work I had done in August out of my mind, because I assumed, if anythings wrong they will call. They did, SIX months later, and on a Friday afternoon, so I had to wait and worry all weekend to get an appointment (today).
When I arrived at my doctors office the medical secretary said that they had called me four times over the past few months. I smiled politely and informed them that I never received any message, thinking in the back of my mind if this is serious, I will sue your pants off, so don't feed me a line of doo-doo to CYA!!
Thankfully it was not serious. Apparently I have borderline low iron levels. Not shocking I suppose since I don't eat red meat or pork, but does explain why I feel lethargic at times. Does anyone else have low iron? Is it common amoungst runners? Anyway, I am now on prescription iron pills.
I hope everyone is having a good week. Its Friday tomorrow and its a long weekend in Ontario, Family Day is Monday!! Woo Hoo! Thanks for reading
