Personal:

†I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired from competitive racing.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;

answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever Iím in trouble,
and you will answer me.† - Psalm 86:1-7

Well, interesting weekend, highs and lows.  Today marks my official date for 30 years working for the Department of Energy.  With this milestone, now I just need to keep going 2.5 years to my minimum retirement age to retire!  

This milestone takes on new meaning as of yesterday. I have finally figured out my pain from the past 1.5 months.  Last night it got so bad my wife took me to the emergency room.  Back pain, chest pain, trouble breathing.  After some meds, blood work and a CT scan, I found out I have two pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in my lungs).  They are small and treatable and I wil be on meds, but now to find out why I have them (no causes evident and traditional precursors not present).  At least I can name my pain, which means I can treat it.  All other indicators are great, so I was released early this morning and now just need to have my body get rid of these and hopefully prevent additional occurrences.   Good news is that exercise is a primary treatment, so keep on running!

Wow, Jeff. Iím glad you finally identified it, and lots of prayers and positive energy your way!

From steve ash on Mon, May 30, 2022 at 22:48:39 from 174.52.121.51

Yes, definitely keep on running. Hoping this resolves for you.

From Jon on Tue, May 31, 2022 at 00:17:15 from 75.136.121.106

Glad they found the cause and can treat it. It's worrisome when there's unknown issues.

Ignore if you wish, but there's drastically increased reports of PE since the covid vaccine rollouts. Something to consider. They say having Covid can also increase risk of PE.

Lots of info if you want to look for it.

Oh wow, that's pretty scary you were walking around with that but so glad it is treatable and no longer a mystery. Get better soon and keep on running!

From Tom on Thu, Jun 02, 2022 at 17:27:16 from 104.243.51.104

So sorry to hear about the blood clots but hope now that you know what is the cause you can move forward and get back to full health and no pain.

Recover quickly my friend.

Thanks to you all. Several of you have been through tougher health scares than me in the past and you are inspiration to me.

5 miles today walking.  Pain is down quite a bit the last two days, still have a cough and some shortness of breath.

Today marks the one year anniversary of my son starting his job with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta!  Time flies!

Got to connect for dinner with old friends and colleagues from my previous position who are in town for meetings (even got a few out especially to see Kami and I who normally don't do the "dinner" thing after meetings!).  I really miss them (have not made friendships like them since in my current job) and the mission, but am glad to be done with some of those stresses of that job.

Just depressed. Living in country that regulates guns less than women's rights while at the same time marketing to men to "increase their performance in bed" and to make sure "she likes it too" but not holding the men accountable as well for the result (just the woman's problem to deal with). Cares more about "unborn" fetuses than living people.  Wants to arm teachers rather than hold law enforcement to ethical standards and their "duty to serve and protect".  Says My body my choice then tells others what to do with their bodies.  Supports a regime that has been proven to have lied, coerced and conspired to stay in power, supported lawlessness at the house of demoncracy but then dispands marches for human rights.  

Still in pain, can't sleep and just pissed.  Ran 10 miles (5 with Moxie) harder with the hopes of dislodging the blood clots in my lungs to travel and be done with it.  Didn't work, now to drink.  (React Black)
