Health Update

Just so you know, I'm not dead.....not yet anyway.  On July 14, 2012, I checked into Sparrow hospital in Lansing, MI.  At the time I had several things going on.  Cellulitis for one, and as I suspected, several other serious infections.

They put me in isolation, pumped me full of anti-biotics, and operated on my left knee and right foot to remove several serious abscesses.  The surgeon's hope is this will help save both legs from amputation.

I'm told there are still several abscesses in my right leg, below the knee, but apparently they're not serious enough to warrant surgery.  In any event, I'm now staying at the Ovid Health Center, in Ovid.  A small, one horse town, that doesn't have a Hungry Howies I could order from.  I don't think there's even a McDonald's in town.

They got wound vacs on my injuries, which seem to be accelerating the healing process.  My hope is they'll let me go home to stay soon.  Right now, I can go home for a few hours, but living in Mason, makes it a bit of a drive to go home very often.

Here's hoping I'm home soon, and can post more.  I promise, my next one will be about guns, and/or politics.

 Current Mood: Awake
 Current Music: Need You Now - Lady Antebellum
My Carry Pistol: None at the moment.
