Better late than never

Finally got the culture results back from last week's "OMG hurry up and get in here!" appointment, and they were a trifecta of streptococcus beta-hemolytic B, pseudomonas aeruginosa, and staphyloccous aureus, most of which were apparently just hanging around on the skin waiting for a friendly environment to show up. It's possible I may have actually had this infection for a while and just written it off as depression or a lack of sleep, but at any rate it's being beaten back quite nicely by the Cipro and the sulfa.

In other news, work went pretty smoothly today, and we're pretty much ready to get through the month-end close tomorrow. That's what the senior controller thinks, anyway, and he ought to know. Came home to find the replacement bread robot blades in the mailbox, and may crank out some oat bread in the near future, especially if it keeps being pleasantly cool in the evenings.

Long term infections
I too have suffered from long term infections. The affects you report (depression and exhaustion) are exactly how I felt. I too responded well to antibiotics and have felt great since. I recommend taking the full course of drugs and kill 'em all!

Re: Long term infections
Yeah, we're going to be keeping an eye on the situation and I suspect I'm going to wind up with a multiple-refill set of antibiotic prescriptions.
