Hi @clodaghcov , I'm very pleased you're recovering. Enjoy your geraniums :) :-) (:. I hope you will recover more and more from now on. You're doing great and you have a really positive attitude considering the fact that it's even harder with hospital treatment and recovery with the corona restrictions in place. Have you had your vaccination, yet? I'd like to get vaccinated but, in Germany, they are excruciatingly slow. They still haven't finished with group 1 (over 80 year-olds, people with serious pre-existing diseases and health care personnel). I wish you all the best - Constanze

Thank you @clodaghcov,
Yes, indeed, I'm back to cycling. Today, I did 65 km (around 40 miles) - along the Main and Rhine rivers. I'm actually back to running also. I signed up for the Frankfurt Ironman (June) and Frankfurt marathon October) 2020, but it's been postponed to June/October 2021. I hope more people will be vaccinated by then. My husband registered but hasn't got an appointment yet. He might get one in March since had had his 70th birthday in November. I'll probably have to wait until summer. I wish you a great hip recovery. Do carry on reporting on here about your progress.

The picture shows me and my new bike. Bests from Constanze

I'm so sorry to hear this. :console2:

But full marks to your GP for taking urgent action.
It's a pain to be back in hospital again, but that's the right place for you at present.

I hope they soon sort out the right antibiotic and other treatment for you.

I am ok! They spent 6 hours trying to replace everything debride and clean so now its in the lap of the gods there is nothing i can do. We have the first results back which is very quick so my IV has changed toAnudulafungin so although i have not heard much about the bug i guess its fungi type. It will be 77 days before final results come back,but i guess its fungi bug. Now i have to start fighting again,since Thursday I really felt i couldnt do it. but hey ho life in the old bird yet! Thank you all for your support,hugsxxxxxxxxxx

Just catching up, and was holding my breath as I ventured over here to your thread, my friend. Wish it were better news for you.

They spent 6 hours trying to replace everything debride and clean
Jeez...six hours! Bless your heart, for real. I'll bet you are sore as the dickens.:sad:

We have the first results back which is very quick so my IV has changed toAnudulafungin so although i have not heard much about the bug i guess its fungi type
Glad they got results back quick and from what I read this medicine is a novel antifungal drug that is very effective against resistant strains so I pray it works quickly.

Now i have to start fighting again,since Thursday I really felt i couldnt do it.
I'm sure you are tired but yes, fight you must. I cannot do anything but pray and cheer for you so that's what I will do with all my heart.

In my work, the strongest people I’ve met have not been given an easier life. They’ve created strength and even happiness from dark places.

You deserve a break, for real.
Keep keeping on...I'm rooting for you dear @clodaghcov
