Michal's friend Alex is hitting the rollercoaster portion of recovery. He is still awake and talking and trying to recover as quickly as possible, but he has been diagnosed with pneumonia and 2 infections are require a good fight. One is MRSA and it isn't clear if he has a MRSA infection or is colonized. Hospitals have swab nearly everyone and a large number of us are colonized but don't have an active infection. I'm sure after so many years of treating sick people that my nasal swab would be positive. MRSA is worse than the other bug so I'm hopeful that he is simply colonized by MRSA and suspect that's true.
As for me I'm tired. I think I am anemic from blood loss last week. I drove all the way to Cleveland to have labs drawn today since that's the only place I don't have to pay out of pocket. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get results. I slept almost all day yesterday and was very tired all day today. I tried to exercise. The segment I was doing is 20 minutes; I rapidly realized I wasn't going to make it and tried for 10 but was so tired at 8 that I lay down and fell asleep for 2 hours.
So better post coming soon.
