    GO!!!!!! AJ!!:clap

    I've been sick for almost two weeks now. Went for a WALK yesterday and wanted to go to bed afterwards. Doing anything strenuous in these two weeks were like walking up a mountain without oxygen, so I think you're doing mighty freaking fine there!:thumb


    GO!!!!!!! AJ!!!:clap:freaky

    isnt it insane how you can be totally fine and two days later you can hardly throw back the covers? Im tellin' ya.... this last one was BAD for me. I had vertigo, disorientation..... it was so bad I actually went to the doctor and got bloodwork.
    Anyways, that was all behind me till two days ago I wake up with a scratchy throat!

    WTF!?

    nearly got the holeshot today but another rider decided to turn in front of me at about 60 mph and i crashed pretty hard. Just got home - heading to urgent care now.
    Was a perfect day for racing too.....

    Sorry to hear that. I crashed twice - the first one bent my thumb back a little - no biggie. The second has me sitting in the ER with a pain filled foot. I do t think it's broken like you had but I need something done to it. Both crashes were my fault - just got crossed up in a rut the first time. The second time I think I was just tired - it was right after the 1-2 loop merge.

    was in Emergency for 7 hours yesterday. While I was getting X rayed apparently I passed out and hit the floor. I dont remember any of it, then I got a catscan....
    Was a very long day. Up for 22 hours, no food for 12. Good news is everything came back clean. The entire right side of my body has swelled up so much I can hardly get on a pair of jeans and so painful....I have three bottles of pills now! Ive discovered new colors on my legs - it aint pretty!

    Now I gotta go to court for my fun Lawnmower thing...

    Ouch. That's way too fast to be wrecking safely. I hope you heal up quickly.

    There's a new photo on the NHHA Facebook page you might recognize. No credit was given but some of us know where it started...
