Welcome to the suck

I forgot to mention that one of the trailers jamestrainor and I sat through before Serenity was for Jarhead, which was a pretty decent book and looks to be a pretty decent movie. Plus it has a slogan that fits really well with the way I'm feeling this morning.

I didn't make a lot of progress on the documents last night or Sunday...as of this morning I'm up to 300 docs completed (but not all verified) which means there's no chance in hell I'm going to be done with them by tomorrow night unless I stay up really, really late. That's not in the cards. I barely managed to stay up until 2200 last night before my body said "Hey, dumbass. Your leg is infected. You better lay down." Which I did, but first I taped a bandage laced with bacitracin to the hot painful spot, hoping it would prevent further damage and maybe do a little good. When I did lay down, I was struck with the worst case of fever chills I can remember - for a minute, I couldn't do anything but lay there and shiver. The hot spot doesn't seem any bigger this morning, but it still hurts and hasn't shrunk any; it made getting the compression stockings onto the left leg all kinds of fun.

So, I have a call in to the doctor for fresh antibiotics. The triage nurse says she'll probably want to see me, but I don't see that happening since I don't have the PTO to take off and see her today; you'd think by now she'd realize that I know what infections look and feel like and know what needs doing. It's not like anyone takes antibiotics for fun. We'll see how things go. I feel ooky this morning, but not enough to stay home, so roll on the work flow...
