Two weeks ago I had my fifth colonoscopy in four months. The plan was, get it done and then get on with my life. I got good news and won’t need another one until February.
After the procedure I felt oddly tired. For nearly a week it didn’t go away. Then last Tuesday night I went out to dinner with my wife and daughter out to eat at The Feve in Oberlin. Great meal but I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I came home and slept for fourteen hours. I had a severe sore throat with running eyes, nose and severe coughs. For the next five days it got better and worse. Each day I slept twelve to sixteen hours. It got so bad that I thought about going to Texas and getting Ebola, it might be a lesser disease. Right now I’m calling what I have Coldbola, It’s brutal. Right now I only have sporadic attacks of coughing. My eyes are running but is is 80% better.
The weather has been nasty but I need to get on the bike. The weather is supposed to get really nice by the weekend. I’m hoping that I will be well enough to do some riding. We’ll see.
