Story of My non-healing Wound - infection Again

Posted 08-08-2014 at 01:30 PM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

How much can we take before despair creeps in? For some not much for others quite a bit. I think I qualify for the later.
Pain is the over riding problem I face. For the last month I noticed in increase in pain. It started at the wound bed then veered to the right, where the undermining was at it's worse. I could tolerate little pressure before needing to move. I could feel this wound growing.
Answer, infection. Again. Two weeks of oral antibiotics is better than a week of IV therapy....

Sorry y'all.

Right so, I'm already filled with regret. The above sounds petulant and elitist. Let me re-phrase:...

By now you’ve seen—or at least heard of—the latest social media trend: Selfies. This phenomenon sweeping the nation involves taking a portrait of yourself with your phone’s camera, and then posting it on social networking sites like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for all to see. Pop stars like Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Rihanna post selfies to the Internet on a daily basis.
