Eventless, Eventful Week

This has been a very eventful week. It all started on Saturday after our half marathon in Pinedale. The right side of my neck, chest, arm and body started aching. I didn't know why I hurt so bad but decided to see if I felt better in the morning.

On Sunday morning I woke up in pain and I could hardly move my right arm without excruciating pain in my chest and up my neck. Since chest pain isn't something to mess around with, we went into the ER here in Kemmerer.

Since I had just run 13.1 miles the doctor said we could skip the EKG and stress test. After all the normal ER stuff though I found out that I had torn my pectoral muscle and that I had a bad sinus infection. I would never pieced it all together myself. Anyways that was good news considering the things that go through your head when you have chest pain. The doctor sent me home with a list of prescriptions to start taking and instruction to rest and get a massage ( I can handle that)

The rest of the week is kind of a blur. It's been a slow mix of sleeping, taking meds, laying on a heating pad, sitting in hot tubs, ice, reading magazines, and a sprinkling of pain. Not exactly my idea of fun. I'm not a good sick person. I hate laying around and I felt a little trapped in my own body.

On fridy we had the women's retreat for the Intermountain West District which our church is a part of. I went even though I wasn't feeling up to par. I was sick half of the time however it still ended up being good. I got to spend almost all of Saturday talking with my sister Heather while I layed in bed with my heating pad. Then my little sister Amanda came for one night I got to spend a little time with her. My retreat experience was probably different from everyone elses considering I didn't go to all the sessions but nevertheless it still ended up being a retreat for me.

Now it's Monday. I'm finally feeling better and I'm ready for a normal week. I think my sinus infection is clearing up and my body doesn't hurt as bad. So hopefully hopefully hopefully I'm on the tale end of this thing
