Day 9 - Trip to Urgent Care

Now, a week ago I fell during one of my hikes and scraped my leg up really good.  Well, it is not looking very good right now and I decided it was time for me to go to the doctors.
But first I did the morning hike (don't want to miss out on a chance to burn some calories).

Best dessert ever!!
The hike this morning was Stop Sign. The hike is all on pavement and 4.5miles. Now one thing I must point out is that the elevation of the hike is 1000ft, with the majority of the incline being on the last 1.25 miles. I made it to the top.

After the hike I decided I had better go the doctor with my leg because it is actually looking worse than when I first fell.  Doctor decided I needed to go on antibiotics and give me a different antibiotic ointment along with telling me no pool and to elevate it whenever I can...haha!
Fitness Ridge was great, they drove me to the clinic, picked me up and took me to Walgreens to get my prescription filled.
Funny, I felt like a kid in a candy store when I was at the drugstore, but I didn't buy anything but my prescription.
Now for some good news and some bad news. First the bad news is that my ipod is toast, the good news is that my friend Tracy sent me her ipod so now I have music. Thank you Tracy for helping me keep my sanity here (I know...I know, that is if I ever had any sanity in the first place.)
I ended the day today with another lovely massage, it was wonderful.

(P.S. don't tell my mom about my leg or the visit to the urgent care clinic. I don't need her worrying any more about me than needed)


  1. Glad you got an Ipod again and look after that leg! Hope the antibiotic does it's thing.

  2. Too bad you're out of the pool for a bit. I know you find it relaxing, but don't worry the leg will heal up in no time. How are you finding the food etc at the resort? What about taking a few pics of your room, the pool, gym or whatever. Have fun and keep blogging.

  3. Looking great Janet! Glad you have music to move to again. Love your blog

  4. Sorry about your leg but i am sure the antibiotic will heal it up quickly. Your menu looks so good everyday. It sounds like your hikes are fantastic. You have quite the endurance!!! I am amazed at your schedule. I look forward to hear whats next.
