NOTE: My normal posting time has come, only to find me under the influence of both health and cable problems. The cable problems seem by now to have been banished but too late for me to read much. There is a fair chance that I might be back in normal action by this time tomorrow.
My health problem is a post operative infection in the wound site -- most probably golden staph. I am on 300 mg of clindamycin 6 hourly so that should help. I can control the pain with di-gesic pretty well but I have to be cautious about sepsis so my next recourse may have to be a vancomycin drip.
Either the infection or the remedies seem to be making me very drowsy so I sleep for long periods, which is probably a good thing on the whole.
