Hi, so I’m out of the hospital and in pretty good shape, all things considered. I indeed had a staph infection like Martin Prado’s, in this case MRSA, or “Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus“. That is, a strain resistent to some of the most common antibiotics. I actually was prescribed the correct drug, but (tender imaginations might stop reading here) I developed a large abcess — I compared it to a potato — that served as a reservoir for the bacteria so the antibiotics didn’t reach it all. The surgeon went in and drained the abcess and now the antibotics are working.

I may recap tonight, I may recap tomorrow morning. Depends. Still using a borrowed computer.
