At least I’m consistent

After being assured that my latest batch of antibiotics would work on killing the infection in my leg.  Taking the antibiotics via IV was supposed to give me a deeper penetration and therefore kill the infection fully.  I finished my last batch of them on Thursday (and out came the pic line) and things looked better.  Last night I told Wendy that I could feel the infection return.  This morning I could see that it had and it is currently moving up my leg.

Tomorrow I have a doctor’s appointment with a vascular surgeon and we will talk, umm, options for what to do next.   It’s not going to be a fun appointment.

My white blood cell count is normal which means that my body has just given up fighting the infection.  My protein count is supposed to be 7.  It’s 150.8 because of the infection and inflammation.   Not only that but the ulcer on the bottom of my foot is bleeding horribly this morning after months of improvement. 

So I am off to City Hospital for treatment of the ulcer.  Then I am going to head downtown to shoot some photos and deny what is happening.  This afternoon I am off to Don’s Photo where I am going to calibrate some lenses for Mark and I before returning home to battle the coming chills and fever all night. 

I hate this.  I just want it to end.  Hopefully I have two legs at the end of the process.
