Quick Update

On Saturday I finished the brief course of antibiotics I’d been prescribed Thursday. I continue to take the antimicrobials as prescribed, however, today I feel again almost as ill as I did when first struck by the waterborne parasite. Yesterday evening I did not even feel like riding, and returned home after rounding the block. This morning I rode only about three miles, then returned home and sprayed front and back yards to kill bugs. By lunch time I was feeling poorly. I felt worse still after a short nap.

On the other hand, I am happy to report that the work of my local bike mechanic effected a cure for the shifting mechanisms’ problems, and front brake now also works very well.
