Somewhere on the way to Alaska, I got a bug bite or whacked my elbow, it swelled, got infected & hurt like crazy! Didn't really notice until Tok, and by then who knows where the nearest nursing station/pharmacy was. So I put ice on it and ignored it. It quit hurting after 2 days.
Fast forward to home Aug 2 . . . I called & made an appt with the Doc, she saw it and put me on antibiotics for one week. I go to check in this morning . . . It doesn't look any different, leaving me to contemplate IV antibiotics, aspiration and who knows what else . . . . Catch you up later.
Later: Good News! The infection is gone, she will drain it and insert cortizone on Monday and I can have my elbow back!
