Blood tests came back significantly improved over last week's; white blood cell count is down, glucosylated hemoglobin is up to 6.8 (which is still good) and all the hepatic function numbers that had the docs worried earlier in the year are now good. Left leg wound is completely dry and the right leg is now bleeding more than it's leaking lymph fluid, which is a Good Thing. Unfortunately, the fatigue and foul taste of water are known side-effects of heavy-duty antibiotics in general and Zyvox in particular, so I can expect another week of this.
Still, I am happy that the legs and blood chemistry are continuing to improve. Yes, this is the cue for several of you on the f-list to chorus: "WE TOLD YOU SO!"
