That Looks Unusually Like a Normal Leg

Well, fourteen days of Augmentin did not kill the staph infection in my leg, so on Wednesday I went back to see Dr. Bob who wrote me a prescription for 21 days of Bactrim. The leg has slowly been becoming less red and is almost looking normal -- save for the slowly closing hole where the original infection erupted.

However, the swelling in my left foot that has been there ever since the surgery has gone away, my knee no longer feels swollen at all, and the leg looks like it's more or less the same size as my other leg. That's a major improvement.

We'll see how it goes. Bob has promised an update on the wound culture tomorrow. They already determined that it's staph and that it wasn't growing too quickly, but it'd be nice to know more about the pedigree of the beasts in my leg.
