Good afternoon everyone,

Some people may find a small part of this update up setting.

Its been a quiet week this week, two visits to the doctors, I'm now on two different types of antibiotics, they are to be taken one hour before or two hours after food, this is causing a slight problem for me, I'm only realy getting one meal a day. On the plus side the antibiotics seem to be starting to win...

******************* Messy Bit ******************

The second visit to the doctors this week was to have wounds and dressings checked, of the seven on my legs six have healed and with the help of the nurse twisting my leg I was able to see the extent of the injury to my foot, its a 2x1 inch open wound and is rather angry looking. The nurse washed it out and was being very gentle with it and surprised when I didn't whimper, moan or have a sharp intake of breath! I had to smile and tell her I've not been able to feel the leg for twenty-six years :)

******************* Messy Bit ******************

The other side of the infection is the insidious creeping through the body, I've been sleeping terribly, waking up dripping in sweat and shivering at the same time! Another not nice part is I'm not allowed alchol, it will react with one of the antibiotics. Strangly I don't miss the evening side of the drink, its when I go to bed, I normally go to sleep and will go through for four to five hours and then wake up with the pain and discomfort, I've been going to bed and struggling to get comfortable, tossing and turning. Las night was a particuarly bad night, headed to be at around 2230hrs, the last time I looked at the clock it was 0136hrs and I was at really low point...

I have another two appointments this week with the doctors, Tuesday and Wednesday, I'll let you know more after those...
