Medical Update

I had an extremely aggressive bacterial infection, which I discovered last Saturday. By Sunday it was really on the move. Urgent Care doctors quickly identified the culprit and put me on massive doses of antibiotics, including IV infusions for a couple days. As one of the doctors said yesterday, “You’re over the hump.” That appears to be modern-day medical language to mean I’m getting better. If all proceeds normally, and there is every reason to believe that it will, I’ll be back to my regular schedule next Monday. It was a bit of a scare. Watch out for infections, there are some nasty bugs out there.

Thanks to all who sent notes of concern; I really appreciated it.

So glad to hear that it was something treatable.

I totally agree with Rachelle. People and the state of Wisconsin and all lovers of history and recent times NEED you.

Any notion of where you got the infection?

Jerry,I am just now made aware of this and am so glad you are doing well. Good thing you got on it right away.
Time to plant the garden pretty soon so it's a good thing you had it taken care of. I have the planting bug (no pun intended) bad this year. Potatoes cut and ready to go in as well as onion sets, etc. planter is greased up and ready to go to the sweetcorn fields when weather allows. It's been a long winter! happy gardening up there in the dairy state keep us advised how it goes this year! Dennis.
