I'm in the wrong line of work! I seem to know more about this damn spider bite than the doctors. Here is a piece of the opening conversation between the doctor and I.
Doc. "How's the leg doing?"
Me. "I don't think the infection is gone yet!"
Doc. "it looks good to me"
Me. REALLY? (then I reach down and squeeze my calf just a little)
Doc. "there seems to still be some infection in there"
Me. "yea, did you notice my leg is still swollen?"
Doc. "I guess it is why is that I wonder"
Me. Trying bot to reach out and smack him in the head. "because the effing drugs arn't working"
Doc. "Hummm I think you are right"
I quit talking then, I can only be a nice guy for so long. and I think I was at my limit.
So this is what is going on now.
I'm on new drugs, I am to be off my leg for the next ten days and be back in for a unpacking (#3). and to see how it looks on Thursday.
I would post a picture but I think that would be pushing it a bit to far. Trust me its UGLY okay!!
Side note to family and friends.... I love you all for your kind words and support!!
