Two skinny J's
Getting ready to re seal the end of the dock. Phase one, pressure wash and clean.
You got this Knee - keep us posted.I was thinking, how?
Well, never smoked, but work in a firehouse.
Over the age of 35.
And it is in the upper lobe, which from what I understand, prognosis is a bit more sinister than anywhere in the lung.
So, on the horn with Hopkins, U Penn and U of MD tomorrow.
After I go for a morning ride.
Got an email from Contes about that today. Hmmm.Specialized announced the release of the new Tarmac SL7 today They are not making the venge anymore. Basically they have brought the Tarmac to market to double as their climbing all around bike and their aero bike. I wonder if others will follow suit. I’m on my 3rd Tarmac. Absolutely love them.
I had an unprovoked Dvt in December. The clot dissolves quickly. I was on the trainer the day after the ER. I rode super easy for a month before ramping it up. No lung issues. I’m on Eliquis indefinitely, or more precisely until my bleeding risk from the medication outweighs the risk of a recurrent dvt. If your clot was provoked you may only need anticoagulation for 3-6 months.I’m sitting here thinking, whatever will i do with my time, as i take a Dr. ordered break from cycling....or any strenuous activity for several weeks.
For this years family adventure, we had purchased flights to save on drive time. Then along cane CV19 & i wasn’t comfortable hitting the airports or being side by side with who knows what.
Sooo, we drove. A LOT!! ..... and I’m paying for it.
After the 8th day of travel and the 5th day of increasing calf pain, i visited the ER in Rapid City, SD. Their tests confirmed what i was afraid of.
DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) or in English. A blood clot.
Likely formed because i sat for hours & hours with almost no activity for the first two days of our trip.
Now it’s blood thinners, additional testing and no cycling until this thing dissolves & they’re more certain it’s caused by our trip and not a new feature of my troubled body.
I know what I’ll do, I’ll shop for cycling stuff!!!!
