I'm trending upward!
I was told that the next selfie I post better have me smiling. So, here you go!
I'm doing much better today. Just 18 additional hours on my current antibiotic have made a significant difference (see the photo here: https://plus.google.com/109135504962884574503/posts/VWptKnd3CnL
). I walked a lot more yesterday, unaided by my cane, but pain upon I lowering my leg was still astoundingly high.
After a good rest last night, when I got up this morning, I got out of bed with hardly any pain at all! (Well, there were still white knuckles and much grimacing, but I could weather this much better than before.) and I've already logged a half-mile of walking today.
I'm well-oxygenated, my blood pressure was good (108/68), my heart rate was the lowest yet (68, which I verified for myself, later), and while my blood sugar still isn't acceptable it was the lowest so far.
I'm pretty sure we've turned the corner.
I haven't been rounded on by the doc yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if he considers discharging me today.
Thank you friends, family, minions, coworkers, and strangers for ALL your
prayers! And thank God for good docs and effective medicine!
