Now, it didn’t really hurt, only to the touch. But darn was there a lot of pressure. At first all I saw was this sausage toe and kind of laughed it off. I had a morning planned with the roommate so bother.
We walked about 4 miles to a little store to do some of her wedding stuff. Noon comes around and I see that this red streak is now progressing up my leg. Oh joy. I text my mom and get a GET TO THE ER text. Not what I was expecting at all.
Come 1 pm, I am sitting in the ER waiting room being looked at and doctors baffled by how fast it spread. They drew the line so they could see if after the IV drip it was still moving. They did tons of blood work just because they were so unsure of what it was. Three hours later, I am out the door with ten days of heavy antibiotics I take every six hours – bacterial infection as the most likely cause but still unsure. Plus, I have to go back tomorrow for a check up.
Luckily, I told them I was a runner and they said I should have no problem doing any activity. The only thing I see could be the *cough* stomach distress that these antibiotics cause. Not fun at all.
Saturday of fun for sure. Party animal I am I have some blogs to read and an early night with alarms set for each six hour block.
Hope you all had a better Saturday!
Questions: Ever have a really bad infection? Do you hate taking antibiotics? What did you do this Saturday?
