Home from the hospital
Saturday, July 23, 2016
I came home yesterday from my visit to the hospital. I had (have) cellulitis on my chin of all places. The chin started itching and burning then turned red and swollen (think Jay Leno, no offense to him). My dr was at a loss as to what it was because the chin is a very unusual place to get this. So I was admitted, pokeed and prodded by more drs than I can count to get the official diagnosis of cellulitis. I was bombarded by antibiotics of which I'm not fond of but they were afraid with it being on my face and it was spreading IV antibiotics were necessary. After 1 1/2 days of this, the swelling had gone down enough for me to go home with oral antibiotics.
I'm just glad to be home. Nothing like sleeping through the night in your own bed!
