Quick Update

I went to the Ortho doc yesterday and he took out my stitches. I hate staples. They hurt so much when they are taken out. I don't have to see my Ortho doc for another four weeks and hopefully that will be the day he sets me up for my knee surgery so I can get back on track.

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.

Dude... I fall off the planet (again) for a few weeks, months, whatever, and you get all this crazy shit happening! @_@

Hope you're truly on the mend and that all those little asshole bacteria kick the bucket ASAP.

I've been out of the blogging loop for awhile and just now attempting to get caught up. I'm sorry to hear of your health troubles. My goodness girl, I hope you are feeling better!
