Back to the Emergency Room Again
Yesterday, the MRSA infection seemed like it was going away. This morning I woke up with my arm swollen so much I had no wrinkles--not easy at 57 years old. The cut they made Thursday night to drain the would had opened and blood and pus were coming out. The MRSA is back. I called my doctor and they said to go back to the emergency room. I got a different antibiotic which is already giving me a weird taste in my mouth. They said to soak my arm in hot water.
At the hospital Jacari was hoping they would do something he could watch, like cutting and squeezing pus out of my arm. Nigel was happy when they did not do anything visual.
Looks like I am going to be a lab rat for infectious bacteria.
