My Road To Recovery

To Cycling Fans

I have been diagnosed with a Parasite and a Yeast infection of the Intestines (Candida Albicans). I have been having stomach problems for sometime now so I am happy that the Doctors have found out the root of the problems.

My Team NetApp is very supportive and I expect to make a full recovery. My goal is to be back racing by June. I am greatly disappointed that I cannot take place in the Tour of California. On the other hand I am very happy to finally know what is wrong with my health and that I have a chance to get back to racing like I use too. The lucky thing is this is a long season and there are still many races to be raced. I just need to make sure I am back to 100% before I put my body through the stress of racing again. My Doctor is helping me with my treatment. I have just finished taking anti parasitic medication and now I am about to start the anti fungal medication to help cure me of the Candida Albicans infection.

I just can’t wait to feel good again on the bike and am very motivated to do all I can to make this happen.

    You will be in my prayers and I am asking the prayers of the community of St. Andrew.

    Prayer is a powerful weapon to help you wipe these maladies from your system.

    You are in my thoughts for a speedy recovery and a return to the race.
