And I am back from the dead again! moved twice since the last update, but still in the same general area.
Was in the hospital for over 3 weeks in November to December. Those superbugs and such you see specials about on the news and discovery are no joke. Was diagnosed with Necrotizing Fasciitis and if I didn't go in when I did , would have lost my arm or worse. Luckily I was able to get in, have surgery to remove large amounts of the infected/dying tissue before it was able to get too far past my elbow. Other than loss of feeling in a few areas, some swelling and a handful of scars I've pretty much recovered. Not quite full strength in the right arm, but close enough. Went back to work fully in February.
Now that I have internet, a newer computer and some free time in the evenings, Ill jump on here a little more often and what not. Good to be back.
P.S. For anyone in the area, stay far far away from John Randolph medical center, that is all. lol.
