Cellulitis; again

Tuesday 10th August, 2021

After six months of no updates here, it’s ironic that this entry is on the same subject as the previous one.

On Saturday 24th July I felt tired and ached all over. The next day my temperature shot up to 39°C and, naturally, I was put into isolation. There was no change Monday or Tuesday, but on Wednesday morning I woke up to a severely swollen left leg, so I was back on the antibiotics.

My temperature calmed down by Thursday and since then I’ve been languishing in bed; the last time I got into my chair while my foot was still swollen I regretted it immensely, so this time I’m staying put until the swelling has completely gone.
