It appears that I underestimated how badly off I was earlier this week.
My left calf kept swelling up to the point where I couldn’t remove it from my workboot without severe difficulty at the end of the day on Thursday and had to wear lace-ups on Friday to even get it into work wear on Friday.
And now my current place of residence is in a hospital bed, having been diagnosed with a blood infection, which they’re telling could have been fatal if I hadn’t listened to the wife and visited the local urgent care center this morning. The urgent care folks took one look at it and said gtfo and over to the local ER. They saw it and popped out some admission paperwork, a huge syringe of antibiotics, and another of dilaudin and told me to cancel my weekend plans and call my employer about next week.
Anyway, the docs seem to have it and me under control for the foreseeable future. Lots of antibiotics and a decent amount of pain meds on tap. Discharge goal is Monday.
Carry on all. I got this handled. I’ll do a full write up when I get home.
