a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Follow Up

Back to the doc today after my little hospital stay. I almost called him Dr Dog, because I have to use that word connection to remember his name, Dr Bernard. See how my mind works? Big Dog, Doctor Big Dog, Dr Bernard.

I really like this guy! Amazing, last week he took a culture, something my P kept saying she was not going to do, she knew what it was...I guess not! According to blood work and culture, this infection was just one step below, Sorry we can't do anything for you.

Who knew what a few gallons of antibiotics would do for me? I feel like a new women! I have energy, although I am no less lazy, but I smile and tease and am almost myself again. Wow, I was really, really sick and was just blaming it on being fifty-four!

Hubby and I thank you for all your support.

I'm not creamed but I am feeling stout.

Those bacterial infections can sweep through your body in no time flat and rob you of your life. Even if you survive sepsis/septic shock, it kicks your butt for months afterwards.

I'm so glad you're better and I'm glad you got to see the big dog to help you through this.

I'm very happy for you, Gail. You've been under the weather for a long time. How nice that you finally had a seriously good doctor. Never go back to that other doctor again. She is a bad practitioner and should be reported. Thank goodness for Dr Dog.

Who said, "Don't let that dog lick any wounds, you'll end up with an infection?"...we were always licked by the farm collies when we were wee...must have been your doc when he was a pup!
Glad to see you are better.

Yay!!!! Gail is on the mend. I was more than a little worried about you, and I am happy to hear that you are doing MUCH better. :)

Oh I'm so sorry to hear you've been ill, Gail, but very happy to hear you're on the mend. Just take it easy until you're 110%!
