Hey all,

I’ve been in the hospital again for my ulcerative colitis. For those of you who were keeping up with my running progress, I thought you ought to know that this has set me back a bit. It was only a two-day stint, but yeah… kind of sad. I lost a lot of weight and am getting back into eating today.

I’ll spare us all the “I’m turning over a new leaf” thing, because I’m realizing that dramatic flare-ups like these are just a way of life for folks with UC. I at least know the point at which to go to the hospital, and I have done this enough now to mandate my quickest recovery, and the doctors trust me.

Success from this trip: only two days in the hospital, and needing much less pain medication than previous times (though I won’t lie, dilaudid is kind of awesome in small doses straight to the blood stream).

That’s everything, I think.

How I Would Paint Happiness

Something sudden, a windfall,
a meteor shower. No—
a flowering tree releasing
all its blossoms at once,
and the one standing beneath it
unexpectedly robed in bloom,
transformed into a stranger
too beautiful to touch.

Happy Sunday!

You’re going to want to see this in full view (it’s 12x18 at print resolution; I probably should’ve resized for the internet). It’s mine and Joe’s big plan for building up for the half marathon in November!  We just calculated it, and it looks like we’ll be running 587 miles!
