Nah, it's a staph infection. (See previous post for the beauty on my hip that looks like a boob.)
Here's today's photo:
It's like the Eye of Sauron.
They're about to drain this bitch, pack it, and send me home chock full of antibiotics.
They gave me a tetanus shot about 20 minutes ago. So I'm good for 5 years.
I went ahead and asked if they could switch out my Mirena IUD while they're at it. That way, I can take care of renewing both in 2018. You know, for convenience. But the cute man-nurse with a girlfriend was uncomfortable with how excitedly I asked him to do it.
No new Mirena.
So I'll go home with a snoopy band-aid instead.
(I'm a good girl.)
Dude in bed across from me is getting his hand sewn up. They just told him to close his eyes. I'm just countin' my blessings is all. I may change my tune once they slice The Eye open. I'm a teensy bit nervous.
