Well, the past week I was on the couch and thinking I was going to die (well, not literally, but felt really really sick). When I got back from California I got a phone call from Emily Z saying, "do you have poison oak? Scott does." I laughed and said no, hahaha, I don't sucks for him. No more than a couple hours later I started to itch and see little bump in my leg. I thought, "oh shit, I have poison oak and just made fun of Scott for having it." That's carma for you.

Well, the poison oak was in full force for the following week and I thought surely it should start to feel better soon. Then I came down with a sore throat and that night had a temp of 102 degrees and thought I was just getting the flu. A couple of days later I still had a fever with sore joints and muscle and then my mouth started breaking out with sores. I had about 30 sores and had gone to the urgent care twice. The doctor did not help me at all, but gave me Hydrocodone and sent me on my way. The next day I was worse with more sores, now on my tongue and on the top of my mouth. I went to a regular doctor and finally she gave me something that helped. A few hours later I started to feel better and the fever went away! So if I wouldn't have gotten poison oak and I probably wouldn't have gotten this kids mouth virus. Everything is clearing up and I can see the light!!!! I can't wait to get back on the bike and enjoy these wonderful Fall days before winter hits!!!!!

I don't have any pictures to show, you wouldn't want to see them anyhow. I will put some up of the Dolores cross race that I did. Soon, hopefully!
