Would.Like.To.Catch.A.Break

So, I'd really like to catch a break here. Not only am I trying to heal from surgery, I have a horrible rash. Oh, it's not your run of the mill rash. It's an angry, hivey, whelpy, I will make you miserable in any way possible rash. And yes this rash is down there on my hiney. It appears I am having an allergic reaction to surgical tape.Really? Come on here? Can't I just catch a break?

So I called the Dr's office. They called me back and said the Dr. said to swipe nail polish remover "down there' to try to remove any tape residue. I bet you didn't see that coming did you? At this point, I'm about ready to try anything. So off I go with my bottle of nail polish remover. At first swipe, I thought maybe it was going to help. Two hours later, I'm back on the phone with the Dr's office, asking, begging, pleading to see if there is anything I can do to stop this intense itching.

So where am I with this upcoming marathon that is in 11 days? Currently I'm crying. Hey, I just had my rear cut and cored open like an apple (according to my husband - you have to love his analogy). So I think I'm allowed a few minutes of emotional weeping. Do I want to try? Yes. Do I think it would be a wise decision to try? I don't know. Do I think I have a chance of finishing? I'm not so sure. I need to run this weekend. But right now, unless something changes drastically, I don't see me getting a training run in this weekend.

So right now.. I'm torn.. literally and emotionally on so many levels ...
