The Scare...

If you read this site regularly you will know that it hasn’t been updated in a while. You will also know that it’s not a common occurrence as I like to up date either every day or every other day (With the exceptions of weekends). Since I’ve already been honest with you in the past about my depression, I don’t see a reason why not to share this latest issue with you, the reader. I will tell you now that this post is solely about my health in the last few days and if you want to pass it up, I understand. I will post MORE today, including a belated MotW for those that enjoy that segment.

Friday was the worst day of the year so far for me. Let me back up a little bit. Two weeks ago I went to my doctor’s office and they took a biopsy of some skin on my back. The reason behind it was that they felt that the patch of sink looked kind of questionable and might be skin cancer. It’s about a quarter in size and a few centimeters deep. It took 12 stitches to seal it shut and then I was supposed to have them in for a week. A week was up on Thursday. Went in to get them taken out and sure enough, the sucker didn’t heal and it reopened. The doctor said it would just have to heal from the inside out, yes that’s as gross as it sounds.

Unfortunately when I woke up on Friday morning I couldn’t raise my arm. See, the site is right behind my right shoulder blade. The area was swollen and infected. I took the day off and went to see the doctor, after hours because he was booked for the whole day, and had him give me the horse medicine from hell to try and cure the infection. Turns out I am prone to M.R.S.A (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or some such thing) which means that I get staph but it’s not just regular old kind but the really strong kind that could pretty much eat you up and spit you out if it isn’t taken care of properly. So for the next two weeks I’m stuck on SUPER MEDS to try and quell this uprising.

So it in closing I want to apologize for not having posted but as you can see, it’s not going to be pretty =/.

Hey Luciel, sending you good healing vibes to get well soon from the infection. Did the biopsy come back yet?

I know some of those hardcore antibiotics are rough on the system, but it is a really good thing we have them these days. Sounds like your doctors are on top of things!

I wish you a speedy recovery, and hope all is well with the biopsy.
