Default Hospital Stay

Well sometimes things do not go as planned. I was just discharged from Albany Memorial Hospital where I was treated for Cellulitis in my shin area of my right leg. Cellulitis is an infection and it was similar to one I had in 2006 when I spent six weeks in the hospital. This time I caught it sooner. I was given two different antibiotics intravenously every 2 hours for a day and a half and then started me on oral antibiotics four times a day. I still have the infection but it is better. They sent me home today, Saturday 9/5/15 to my son's house with a prescription for two different antibiotics to be taken at different times twice a day each. I am to see a doctor for followup on Monday the 14th. Roberta has cancelled all of her plans for Canada and Indiana and she wants us to return straight to Florida as soon as I am cleared for travel by the doctor.

On the positive side I stayed on Atkins Induction while in the hospital despite being placed on a cardiac diet plan and I lost 2 pounds while there.

Oh dear, so sorry to hear that you were in the hospital. I hope the infection clears up and you are back to great health soon.
