An Urgent Medical Update...It's back...

Warning: TMI.
I found out yesterday that I do in fact have a staph infection. Unfortunately since the culture was done at the doctor's on Friday, it's gotten much much worse and is progressing rapidly. I'm up to 8 or 9 sores on my body including the newest one which is in-between my toenail and the toe on my baby toe. Can you say Ouch!? I then have about the same amount of new ones that are coming in.
I had a Staph infection the finally went away at the end of 2007 but that was after lasting 13 months.
I'm not sure what's going to happen but I'm supposed to be starting school a week from tomorrow.
Tomorrow I head to Sacramento to see my TMJ doctor and he may end up injecting my forehead with Lidocane in hopes of helping my still-ongoing headache.
Then on Tuesday I find out what I'm doing about the infection which may land me in the hospital.

My computer's been overheating quickly for months and is finally going into the Mac Doctor at the Mac Store tomorrow so I'll borrowing my mom's computer for a few days. I'm excited to get it fixed even if it does mean feeling lonely for a few days (haha!).

I'll be sure to update as soon as I know anything or there are any new developments.

6 days left of summer..and I'm planning to make the most of them!! (Starting with buying my books tomorrow...)

My brother just got out of the hospital with a Staph infection that was turning into MRSA...very serious...and he only had one place on his foot. They ended up having to do surgery.

Please don't let it get any worse! Go to the doc asap and let them do whatever they have to do!

So sorry Krissy. What a time in your life. I hope that things get taken care of and that your transition into school goes smoothly. It sounds like you are going through a lot - take care of yourself!

I'm so sorry, I hope the doctors can get rid of it quickly and it will be gone soon!! I'll be thinking of you!

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I sure hope you recover quickly from your staph infection. No fun!! My daughter responded quickly to meds once they identified the type of staph and gave the correct antibiotic.
