Feeling a need to just be still right now

Jul 13, 2016 7:04 PM

So it's been a kind of miserable couple of days. Abscess drained last Thursday, packing changes at surgeons office Friday, Monday and Tuesday. And then the culture results come back. BAM!!!! We have heavy growth of MRSA in this one. Damn!!!!! Tried Clindamycin but that didn't take care of the whole issue, plus my body is resistant to it. So the next step for me is, you guessed it, heavy duty outpatient IV antibiotics. Yes, have gotten an order for it, just haven't been given a start date yet. I think they are going with IV Gentamicin and oral Rifampin this time, because I have so many allergies and sensitivities to antibiotics. Not making me very happy at this point, but it is what it is. Thankfully, my surgeon had left instructions this morning for the medical assistant to call the ID doc for a STAT appointment, so that is also taken care of. I just really need to kind of just let it go, cause worrying is NOT going to help matters at this point. In fact, it will just make me feel worse then I already do.
Peace out guys, chat later on tonight maybe.

Breathe slow and deep, play some uplifting or relaxing music and let go... you've done this before and you can count on us to be here for you. Get some rest. Bug hugs, love & prayers! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Flappys, Friday and Saturday went pretty well. This morning was atrocious. They had to restart mine again, but they tried 3 times before they got one at the base of my thumb. Makes for uncomfortable typing and moving that hand. Cellulitis and swelling are still there right now.
