This is one Demon you`ll come to love and not fear!!!
October 30, 2011Glad you are home, but sounds like you`ve had a pretty rough week. Take care of yourself and be careful that the infection doesn`t spread. Do they know what caused it?

October 30, 2011Sorry to hear that Will, there have been some bad virus`s going around lately. Good to hear your on your way to recovery, get better buddy

October 31, 2011They didn`t say what caused it, but did say that it also flared up cellulitis in my leg. What ever that is. But wow! Today I was able to get pants on again instead of shorts, even though they are my baggy work pants. Now just a little worried about income for the rest of the time off. I used up all my sick days last week. Hmmm I will figure it out.
November 7, 2011cellulitis is what they said about me about 2 weeks ago when the left side of my of neck and face swelled. I got a bad infection in one of my teeth. It started to affect my air way and they flew me to Pittsburgh.
I am glad that you are home and getting better. Take it easy and take care of yourself.
December 9, 2011My wife had cellulitis over 2 years ago
Luckily we caught it when it was just about 3 inches in diameter on her leg
Had to spend 2 days in the hospital on IV antibiotics
We were real worried but the family DR said it was a very mild case
After reading your post I can see way he said that
