Yep. You read it right. Just like the famous Rumble in the Jungle, George Foreman (played by my Amoxicillin) was handily beaten by Muhammad Ali (played by my infection).
The drugs came out strong and swinging hard, after day 3 it seemed that the infections were on the ropes. By day six I was feeling pretty dang human again. Like Foreman, the sheer power of the antibiotics seemed to overwhelm the opposition, but alas, this was just part of the ear infections rope-a-dope tactic and because of that I ended up back at the doctor again today with the ear and sinus back in full blown infection mode a mere three days after finishing my antibiotics.
So now we have a new contender – Cephalexin – which is a “wide spectrum antibiotic’ which I take to mean “doesn’t give a crap what it kills” kind of drug. It has apparently killed everything living in my intestinal tract and is now moving on to the rest of my body.
With all this going on, looks like I am off the workouts for a few more days. Gonna wait till Friday, see how I feel, and if I’m good then back to the running and weights. If it’s still no, then I’ll wait till Sunday.
Yeah, this kinda sucks. Again.
