Then around one pm David and I went to see my Immu doc to see if the infection is dying away. The infection was Staph Aureus which is not the flesh eating kind of bacteria. Thank the Goddess. It was the kind that likes to hang out with metal implants like knees and hips and eat bones. It displays all the symptoms of Strep A but isn't as deadly unless not taken care of.
Well my infection numbers for my CRP are way down from 11 to 2.3which is fucking awesome!!! That means the antibiotic is working like crazy. Can't wait to get this PICC line out of my arm. It doesn't hurt, it's just bothersome.
David has been a great nurse all through this and the only thing that bothers me is can he get through this in the next 5 weeks. I married such a sweetheart.
