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....

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.
