He is older and not in the shape you are, but still don't give it a chance to take you down any more than it already has.

Rest, fluids, food and whatever the doctor ordered should be your goal. Hell if you can eat try and put on some weight while you are on the mend. Fitness is a long term project and even if you are out 2 weeks you are gonna come back strong.

Like I said above sorry for the unasked for advice I just feel really passionate about this kind of thing.
I really appreciate the advice and totally agree, though its going to be tough. There have actually been a couple new developments since my last post... I spiked a fever Friday night. My dad, an Internist, had flown up advise for the weekend. On Saturday, he insisted that the neurologist do the LP she had deemed unnecessary...turns out I have a 40-50 white count in my CSF, meaning the bacteria is in my brain. Treatment is now IV anitiotics for 2-6 weeks. I am in Birmingham (home) at the moment for treatment. I decided to go home, just cause I think that the stress of work, upcoming MCAT, having an infection in my CNS, and self administering antibiotics alone every afternoon with no outlet/distraction seemed like a recipe for a breakdown. Thanks again for your concern.

Last day without the PIC line for the IV antibiotics. I am in the hospital now for a regular IV dose, the line goes in tomorrow. Since it was the last day I will have complete freedom in the gym for a while, I went ahead and had a good day.

1x145# overhead press, felt good, 5#s below BW, probably could have hit BW.
2x325# DL, no chalk at the YMCA and crappy bar made this tougher than I would have liked.

Accessory work, slower pace:
4x [5x145# PP /// 10x30# Dip]
3x [8xGHR /// 12X45# Split Squat]
Ab work, rear delt and trap ring work

Wow. I am glad your dad pushed for the LP. At least you know now. God speed in your recovery.

Off Day

These next few days are weird. I am going to a friends lake in arkansas tomorrow. I am planning on trying to get my lift in in the morning before I leave but I will be limited to low weights once I am there. I will probably just work on conditioning and such.

Brief swim and as much soccer as the soles of my feet would allow today.

Off day

Tried to drink a diet coke and vodka last night...won't make that mistake again.

Ran 2-3 miles, easy pace.

Stupidly mixed a few scoops of protein powder in some naturally more peanut butter...its like candy...eating way too much of it.
