That was fun.

Well, the xray technicians didn't scream and say "look at the size of that" when they checked my xrays, so I guess I'm going to live. :)

Doctors just shouldn't say brain tumor in any context when you have a headache.

Got a bag full of drugs to try, and based on the result of the xrays, might get something more.

I really hope this is just a recurrent sinus infection, nothing more.

I'm getting nervous, though, that it might keep me from doing the triathlon next week. I know that my health is more important, but it's making me feel wimpy and weak to keep planning to do these things and having my body thwart me. hiddeneye, I did ask about earplugs for swimming, she said she wanted to see what was going on in my sinuses first, before making that recommendation.

I told gymgeek this morning that if I'm not able to do the reebok next weekend (I don't want it to turn into another $50 t-shirt, but I'm also not willing to make myself sicker to do it. The only person I have to prove anything to is myself, and the fact that I *can* now swim half a mile, and walk/job 3 miles is something I already know.) I'll sign up for one of the fall 5 or 10K races. That and I am training for the half marathon in January (which reminds me, I really need to get started on that fundraising).

Bleh. I hate it when my body has different ideas than my brain.

You are SOOOO inspiring to me! I can't wait to be done with the babymaking and get in shape!

I'm really glad you're okay. I was kind of worried there, but that's just because I worry about everything. Oh, and just so's you know, if you eat too many Oreos do NOT be afraid of the color of your poop. I'm learning all kinds of new things as a Mother.

Well, at least I'm not "don't let her leave this hospital" sick. :)
I'm sure it's just sinus infection, but it's annoying as hell.

Next, you can feed Miles beets, and have purple-red poop!

I'll tell you what, we can do the Reebok supersprint together next year! It's not until September--gives you a chance to wear your wetsuit, and take a nice bike ride. :)

Oh so cool! I'm going to look that up....

I think I'll need a new bike, the rules of the Danskin one I read said NO RECUMBENTS. Because they know it would be an unfair advantage. :)

good thing you asked about the ear-plugs.

BTW, I posted 2 recipes for you in my journal today.
