I have bacterial contamination!! No, it’s not an infection, it’s “contamination”. Well, that’s what Dr. Wilson says, and boy is it pretty. Lucky for you, I forgot to bring the camera. Stupid, stupid, stupid! The green discharge around the bloody staples, bruises and redness was impressive. I get to take a really good antibiotic for a while to make sure it doesn’t turn into staph, and keep my foot elevated for another week (although the bandage is getting progressively smaller).\
In other news, my sleep schedule is completely out of whack, thanks to the pain pills. I usually sleep from 5:30pm-6:30pm, sometimes until 8. Then, from 3:30pm-7pm when everyone else gets up. Sometimes, it’s much later, like today, I slept from 4am until almost noon.\
It’s really weird to be awake in the middle of the night. The feeds all go to sleep and nothing gets updated except Flickr.\
Sorry I forgot my camera… it was really impressive. It’s naptime!

  1. I don’t know about contamination vs. infection, but I thought I’d clarify. It either is or isn’t staph, which is a genus of bacteria. It could be a strain of strep or one of three or four strains of staph. However your doctor wants to describe it, I think antibiotics are a good idea. Now, about my consulting fee…

  2. Kev, for when the feeds go to sleep in the middle of the night, learn, love, know For An additional $5 a month, you can be a TotalFark member, and have more things to click and read than you can shake a stick at.
