    Well, I picked up an infection in my bad leg this last week. It was getting worse, so, Friday, we made a trip to the ER. They checked me out and did an ultrasound of my leg just to make sure I didn't have any blood clots. I didn't. My leg was swollen, discolored, and pretty painful. The doc said it was most likely a skin infection and prescribed two antibiotics; one is twice a day and the other is four times a day. David, my youngest, and his family were coming up to visit and ended up just saying hi and going back home. David took a picture of my leg do document it.


    The next pictures I took Sunday evening. The antibiotics seem to be knocking this thing down. It looks a whole lot less angry than it did last Friday. Most of the pain is gone, but some swelling remains. I am going to see my surgeon on Wednesday as a follow up. Thank you for your prayers.

    You got 'em, Jim! Glad to see that you're not taking a "wait and see" approach. Infections like that are nothing to mess with.

    Healing prayers. Add probiotic pills or yogurt with the antibiotics.
