I am finally beginning to recover a bit from being sick. 

Turns out that I had MRSA infection as a result of surgery.  I pretty much lost all of the month of April just hanging out in the house.  I was unable to go anywhere and got tired out just going out to retreive my mail.  

I took a round of antibiotics and my most recent lab results this week show that the bacteria is gone.   Whew....

Been sick

I have been sick and unable to do much for the past few weeks including updating the blog.

It is looking like this is going to take a while to recover from.  I had a type of surgery that knocked me into a place that I did not expect.  I will recover eventually, but doesn't it always feel like recovery goes on and on and on?  Two weeks after surgery I thought I would be a lot better than I actually am right now. 

I researched on line to see how others coped with this kind of thing and it varies all over the place.   But almost everybody had a more difficult time than they expected.   My doctor did not prepare me correctly.  He did not explain the consequences adequately.   But in the end I had no other options anyway, so I had to do it regardless.

I do feel incrementally better today than yesterday.   Maybe I might be on the road back finally?   Man.... I sure hope so.

I really liked Rodney Dangerfield so I borrowed his picture today.  Too bad we lost such a great comedian.
