It keeps gettin' better

Looks like I won't be racing this weekend. Left leg is infected. How can I tell? It's red, warm to the touch and swollen. Oh, and it hurts like a S.O.B.

I'm callin' myself out....pussy.

Seems I have a rather low immune system. Had the flu last week and now this.

Who needs a canary in the coal mine when you've got me around. Geez.

Don't be so hard on yourself. The last thing you are is a pussy.

Dude.. ouch! Last thing you are is a pussy, infections are nasty business not to be taken lightly. I was paranoid as all get out about them with my recent road rash, thankfully it appears I'm healing without any bugs joinin' in the fun.

Hope you get to feelin' better, give yourself time to heal. I'm glad I took a week off, in the end, even if I was gettin pretty dang antsy for the past couple days...

Anti-tetanus shot?
I once fought off an infection for a long time because I did not clean it right away.
See a doc and get working on it right away.

Pussy? Not even close!

Hope it's a fast heal.

Taking it easy is surely the right move. No need to cause more damage. Many more races to come.

Are you getting better???

Leg is almost all healed up. Hip still hurts a bit, but I can ride just fine. Thanks for askin'.
