one slow crawl towards recovery
Today I have got out of bed, had a bath, got dressed and am now sitting in the front room. The fact that this is a Big Achievement is probably proof of how ill I've been.

I've been lying in bed since I got back from the hospital on Wednesday, asleep for more than 15 hours each day and not very awake for much of the rest. I had thought "ooh, if I'm going to be ill at home I could catch up on lj", but today has actually been the first day where I've felt able to look at a computer for more than a few minutes. The rest of the time I've been dozing and playing Dragon Quest VIII, an RPG that I started aaages ago, and which is amazingly possible to play with your eyes closed. Well, I was doing things like the Slime Bingo, where you hit the X button every 30 seconds or so and know from the music if you've won anything...

The other good news of the day is that it seems the "best guess" antibiotic was actually the right one, because the blood tests came back today and the culture was sensitive to amoxicillin and insensitive to, er, some other things. So I'll keep taking the Augmentin for the full course. This is good because it means that a) I am genuinely getting better and b) I didn't have to leave the house to pick up a new prescription.

Gosh, this livejournal entry is boring and self-indulgent, isn't it? So... what's new with you?

Glad to hear you are on the road to recovery.

The only thing of news is that Linz spent a day getting a massive two-piece splinter surgically removed from his thumb and didn't have the decency to summon me to the hospital and extract me from work like I asked him to!

Munchkin is happy and healthy, I'm happy but still snotty.

Nothing to report, but glad to hear that you are getting better. Need more Baratron rants :-)
