MRSA, maybe.

I miss everyone. And I hope all of your are doing well.
I'm not doing very well myself. I've ballooned up to 106.4 lbs. I learned this when I went to the doctor the other day, to get an infected cut looked at. The thing that I'm most worried about, is that it might be MRSA, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. In English, that's basically staph that is resistant to the majority of antibiotics. One of my closest friends was in the hospital with it a few weeks ago, and I was exposed to it when I went to visit him. He's fine now, but there's also a two-inch wide and two-and-a-half-inch deep section of his leg that's been taken out. I'd like to keep all of my leg, thanks.
Needless to say, I'm worried.


  1. Hope you feel better soon. That sounds nasty, poor you :( But knowing there is a possibilty of having it will undoubatable have made you paranoid. I'm sure you'll be fine.

    And doctors scales are never accurate. I did some work in a surgery and I'm not joking, those things were like 6 pounds out. All those years in med school, and they can't get proper freaking scales.

  2. Ouch, that really doesn't sound so nice at all. But, that probably isn't it, it probably going to be just fine. The wait is the hardest part. xo.
