93 Million Miles from the Sun
So it has been a while since I posted a blog and it has been for a very good reason. Actually, it is for a very scary reason. Simply put, I didn’t listen to my body because I was so busy with work and other things in my life. It all caught up with me though on May 12th when I went to the emergency room with a temperature of 101.3, feeling lethargic and sweating profusely. However, I have to backtrack all the way back to September 2017 to really give an understanding of what was happening to me.I was heading home from Washington, DC after attending the Council for Opportunity in Educational Annual Conference when an abscess appeared on my leg. I had never experienced anything like it and was off work for a few days while I waited for the antibiotics to take hold. This was my first visit to MedExpress in Beckley, WV. Hold tight, MedExpress makes several appearances over the next few posts. Things seemed to progress well with the medication but in the back of my mind, I wondered if the infection had completely gone away. I probably should have listened to my mind and body.Fast forward a few months and I am back at MedExpress. This time it is for a urinary tract infection. I am one of those lucky dudes that occasionally come down with a UTI. I have had issues with my kidneys and UTI’s since my junior year of high school that eventually led to surgery. So the doctor gives me meds and I go on my merry way. Now comes, April 24, 2018, and I am back at the doctor with another UTI. Another round of antibiotics and I think I will be back to normal in a few days. On the other hand, I should have known it wouldn’t be that simple. I found myself back at MedExpress on May 9th.To be continued….
