Nice to hear from you, Patti!

I was at St. Mary's Warrick. Closer to home and the ER was less of a hassle. Ended up having several nurses/techs who know my sis and niece and nephew.

So glad to see that you are feeling better, Jan. Dr's orders are to continue to rest and get lots of love and cuddles from your kitties.

I'm so glad you are better, Jan! That happened to my aunt once - she sustained an injury (right after a dental procedure) and developed necrotizing fasciitis! Be careful, girl!

Thank you to all my forum friends for carring about me.

I am doing better and still on oral antibiotics for a few more days. (Just wish they didn't upset my stomach - even when taken with food. )

Hope they're not interfering with your chocolate appetite.

My chocolate comsumption has been down these past couple of weeks. I have a 3 ounce bag of M&Ms that still have some left - after being opened several days ago. I did have a chocolate ice cream bar earlier.

I had the same thing, Cellulitis (I had it in my neck and shoulder). It's no fun, as you know all too well. Did they give you the pill forms of the antibiotics? I couldn't after about a week, as one got stuck in my throat (never could take pills well, esp. big old horse ones). So they had me on one chewable (almost as bad as the pills), and one liquid. I had to take four teaspoons of the liquid, so I had it down: one, then half a soda cracker, then the second spoonful, the other half. and repeat twice more. That got REALLY old, REALLY fast. I knew when I felt like cooking, I was on my way to normal. I started cooking after three weeks. Scrambled eggs. I think the chocolate started as soon as I could get my hands on some!!

it sounds like you've had it before, so you know the drill. Hope you don't have to take the antibiotics as long as I did... which IV antibiotic did they have you on in the hospital? If any. I think I read early on they did.

Feel better soon... I know it takes a little while to get back up to normal.

Thanks, Amanda. I have 2 days of Clindomycin left - yep, big old capsules - and have to make sure I drink plenty of water to flush it down.,

I was on Vancomycin while in the hospital. After the third dose, they had to start another IV line as it was getting painful when it entered the vein. I think after the fourth dose they had me on another antibiotic. Hard to remember as I wasn't sleeping well and my back was acting up (because of the hospital bed).

I came home with a bag of Arby's roast beef sandwiches because I didn't want to cook. (Gotta love microwaves.) So far the extent of my cooking has been baking rolls to nibble and broiling hamburger patties.

My nephew's daughter has been coming after school to check on me and do some chores. She's been a big help.

It's nice to see you are on the mend, and feeling better...even though it may be a slow recovery, a little better each day is better than not.

Hi Jan. Glad to hear you are getting better albeit slowly. Nieces can be wonderful little creatures can't they! Is fuzzybutt helping you out? I just know Topaz is a big help - Bijou says she cannot do any wrong.

Keep us posted hon.
post #113 of 117
Yes, great niece has been a great help, but seemed to balk when I suggested a sponge bath.

The fuzzybutts are their usual fuzzybuttiness. Topaz will curl up with me during the night and Ari has been giving me my chest massages and shedding all over the computer.

Once they admitted me, they had me on Vanco (once you wrote it, I remembered) the whole time... had to change IV sites pretty much once a day. Brutal stuff. My friends took me to their place, refusing to let me go home until I could stand and function by myself. After three days, I was ready to go home to my own cats, a ton of microwave meals, and my own bed. One of my favorite frozen foods that time was Amy's Organic Macaroni & Cheese. Pop in the microwave, and you have what I've figured is the closest to 'from scratch' M&C. Ooohh... now I want to pick some up when I hit the store later today... but i literally tried nearly every frozen meal type out there.

Glad to hear things are looking up, and you have someone to come check on you.

Amanda

When I hear that Jan's chocolate consumption is on the rise, I'll know she's truly on the mend.
