I’m fighting an infection- a small cut on my left hand, pointer finger- that’s gotten infected by the antibiotic- resistant  staph that’s going around. I spent a week in the hospital, on IV antibiotics- then was sent home on oral antibios. Some days are better, some worse- today I’m listless and edgy, stir crazy and feeling a little unwell. No fever, but the swelling is still there and today there was some definitive oozing; the finger hurts slightly- but that started after I was wringing the finger out re : oozing  fairly roughly.

My sense of stir craziness and blahs almost makes the hospital a desirable change… almost. But I’ve done that, I know better.

If there is no improvement, back I go. I the meantime, I’m just gonna bang my head against the wall awhile.
