Monday was a bad day. I had to be to work early, and I knew I’d work late. I woke up late and drove to work… for the first time in months. I’m glad I did, as I was at work until 8:30pm. It did feel strange to not ride a bike on a workday.
I had an appointment with my family doctor on Tuesday morning. It was a follow-up due to my hospital stay recently. My family doctor is in New Albany. Yes, I rode the bike. There was really nothing to find as far as my intestinal problems that sent me to the hospital. Things happen. On the other hand, the CT scan I was given in the ER showed “something” on my liver. The CT scan didn’t get a good enough picture of it to make a determination what “it” is. My doctor ordered an MRI for a better image.
Anyway, I rode to work from the doctor’s office, then home later. I had 29 miles on Tuesday, more than making up for my Monday driving.
Today, Wednesday, was my MRI appointment at Floyd Memorial, again in New Albany. I rode my bike again. I discovered that Floyd Memorial has a good-sized bike rack at the front entrance. It’s your typical “wheel bender” type, but I just locked up next to it. My bike was the only one there.
I wasn’t allowed anything to eat or drink today before the MRI. Riding there with no food or coffee was not my idea of a good time. Luckily the MRI was over quickly, and I grabbed a coffee and a snack from the hospital coffee shop before heading out. The dreaded caffeine headache hadn’t had a chance to take hold yet.
After riding to work and home, I had 26.2 miles for the day. The hospital is a bit closer than my doctor’s office.
I’m slightly worried about “it” on/in my liver. It could be nothing. It probably is nothing, but my liver is necessary for processing copious quantities of beer. Please let my liver be okay.
