It seems I’m battling an infection; an infection that is quite possibly resistant to a lot of antibiotics.
In September, I experienced my first boil. It was on my chin and so painful. I ended up at my doctor who used a scalpel to drain & clean it out. Over the past couple months, I’ve continued to experience boil-like sores on my legs. I had another really painful one this week and went to my doctor. He drained the boil (actual 2 of them, ugh!) and sent the drainage away for testing. I am hoping to get the results back today. Until then, I’ve been trying to lay super low, get my rest and drink plenty of waters. I’m also making sure to treat my body with the real food it needs, as well as the antibiotics the doctor has prescribed to hopefully help. Because what the doctor thinks it is tends to be resistant to a lot of antibiotics, I hesitate to treat with more antibiotics. But, I am trying to trust my doctor at the same time.
Carlos had a similar infection earlier this week and was on IV antibiotics to help fight his. So apparently, we are good at sharing?
So say a little prayer for us? Pray for both Carlos’ and my immune system to stand up and take some serious whacks out of whatever this infection is; pray for the results of my tests come back conclusive for something rather than nothing.
