Infection sets in...

Friday, June 27, 2008

So ,went to the doctor today. He had the results of the cultures, well at least the right side. The right breast has a staph infection. Very nasty and it hurts. The left side is red and swelled and looks almost burnt. The hospital didn't have the results of the left breast . It was taken at the same time but the report said pending. The doctor called while I was there and they said they were still growing the culture. Oh great! I feel so much better now that they said that. I'm waiting for them to fall in my lap as I type. ok so that is probably being dramatic, but it scares the c#*p out of me. This is not what i signed up for. All I wanted was back relief and at least decent looking boobs. Well at least I got half of that. My back does feel better. Well, I need to stop, coz I could keep ranting for a while longer and really bore you.

    I am so sorry to hear this news. This too shall pass. Tell these doctors you want results and a plan of action ASAP for healing. DO NOT let them jerk you around. It think it sucks that you had to even wait so I am mad too! Keep us posted on the progress. If you need anything send me a sparkmail.

    You're going to be good as new in no time flat! Hopefully they will get you going on some good antibiotics and knock out that infection and you'll be feeling wonderful and all healed up before you know it! Are you still smoke free? I had a bit of a relapse, but I am back on the wagon. It's so tough to quit and STAY quit!

    Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about ya!!

    On the plus side (no pun intended) your back feels better. Staph infections are nasty, been there, Well not where yours is, but you get my drift. It will clear up and your going to be 110%. Even the best doctors in the world sometimes lack in the bedside manner. And really what could he had told you other than they're still growing the culture. Not a big comfort, but hey, your healthy and your body is fighting it. So get your rest and keep fighting those unknown demons. I don't mean to sound glib it's just, do what you have to and keep a positive attitude. You and the girls will be OK. PERKY is how I like to think of your new girls. The way I wish mine were again. If I had my 20 year old body in the shape I'm in now..... Momma lock up your boys. LOL

    Best wishes and a very, very quick recovery. emoticon
