Good news

So we spent the larger part of our day at the hospital. I was lucky to be in the care of many amazing doctors, nurses and technicians at Highland hospital in Oakland. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, making a crummy situation as pleasant as it could be. They poked and prodded my leg all day and ran lots of tests. They confirmed that I have a deep infection but it appears to be contained and isn't in the bone or anything scary like that. It is still just a waiting game to see if the antibiotics do their job. If they do I will be back on the bike by the end of the week. Time will tell!

Meanwhile, we are back at Hotel Frank where we spent the first night of our journey. I cant imagine a better place to rest up and recoup. Uncle David and Auntie Renee make sure to keep me comfortable and spoiled. I think the jacuzzi really does cure everything!!


  1. So glad to hear - sounds like you are in good hands. Hopefully you will make a very quick recovery. Sending lots of love and warm wishes from both of us.

  2. Phew! So relieved to hear the good news :) (not so sure about the jacuzzi and infection but I don't want to be the pooper :))))

    I wish you a speedy recovery :)

    Big hugs xo

  3. haha, the bath was doctors orders to help loosen things up and hopefully drain the fluid...no change today which is a good sign. We are keeping a close eye on it and i'm trying to enjoy the rest even though I'm itching to get back on the road!!!
