My Recovery is coming along nicely. I was diagnosed with a staph infection on my left foot during the last phases of the Ocean Rescue Run. The infection has now subsided but the wound itself is still healing. I was given antibiotics via IV daily for 6 days. This dramatically reduced the swelling. I was then given oral antibiotics to be taken over the next 10 days. The decision made to postpone the completion of the run and come home was the right one. Staph infections can easily get out of hand and the infection got worse every day until I received the IV at home.
I am proud of what was accomplished. Not only the distance covered on the run, but the amount of exposure we received. Thank you to everyone who shared our story and helped get the word out. Those people made it all worthwhile. I also want to give a very special and big thank you to Kate. She suspended her life for a time to help someone else reach their goals. She was amazing during the run and played a big part in the decision making processes.
