I'd say today was a good day

It was a good day.

After working late last night, I got up early this morning for an appointment with the neurologist that's been treating me for the Monster in my head. And I'm happy to report that almost 16 months after the Monster reared his ugly head, I've gotten the all clear.

I've been done with the steroids since mid-October, my last MRI looked good, I haven't been having any major problems with my head aside from an occasional dull headache and apparently whenever I go see the doc she isn't noticing any problems. So I've got one more MRI in June and those results I'll get over the phone and unless something major happens, I don't need to go back to see the neurologist.

* Knock on wood *

After getting the good news from the neurologist I headed over to the YMCA and reintroduced myself to the treadmill. I got in a nice 3.25 mile run and it felt good. I followed that up with some time on the bike, just to remind my legs what riding a bike felt like.

Overall a pretty good day, especially considering that I have a 3-day weekend ahead of me. Three days to relax, watch some Badger basketball fit in an indoor triathlon and gear up for Selection Sunday. It's going to be a good three days.
