Well… this week started off awesome…we got to go to the Elton John concert with a few of Glen’s “co-workers” where we sat in the second row… and wait for it…. we got to go backstage and meet him!!!! Yes- we meet undeniable on of the biggest musicians of all times and he could not have been nicer and more personable!! He apparently is a huge baseball fan! This was so refreshing because Glen and I have had the chance to meet a few other quasi-celebrities who were rather rude and “too cool” for us…. and here he his… Rocket man himself… talking baseball and whipping out his ipad to show us pictures of his little boy…. seriously a moment I will never forget!!
Unfortunately from there my week went downhill…. I first went to the ENT to discover that I have yet another sinus infection… and to be honest as some one who has had countless ones I can say this is the worst one I have had… even 3 days into meds now I feel worst- it is super disheartening after having sinus surgery to still be having problems… but this new ENT is looking into a possible immune deficiency and allergies so hopefully we can get some answers and treat the underlying problem once and for all. I also chatted with a friend of mine and she mentioned an article by the Mayo clinic in which their research showed that sinus infections may not be bacterial or viral… but rather fungal. So after looking into it I headed to a local natural foods shop and got a few herbs that are supposed to help support immune function and clear out fungus and mold that may be lingering in the body. We will see how it goes… I am open to anything at this point to feel better!!
Oh and then there was the podiatrist…. I went there on Wednesday to have my big toe looked at and found out that I either strained or torn a tendon in my toe….. I am on anti-inflamatories and if I don’t get better by next week I have to go back in for an MRI and see if I tore it… please pray that I didn’t… I cannot handle another surgery!! The bad news is no running for at least 3 weeks…. which was terrible to hear. I am going to try cycling, yoga, and maybe swimming in the mean time but I know I am going to be dying to run. Not the news I was hoping to hear….
So needless to say…. after getting my first real running injury I guess that makes me a legit runner now… even though I can’t do it for a while…ugh!
Also- the Minnesota Twins Wives are now on twitter and tweeting about their events and charity work… you can follow them here….
