UPDATE: The second antibiotic, as it turns out, was not the right one, suggesting that whatever this is, it's not (as they thought) a staph infection. They're now thinking probably strep. So I am now on a third antibiotic, which I spent the entire evening up at the ER getting the first dose of intravenously. Long-time readers may be familiar, from previous rants about medical adventures, how very much I love having IV treatment of any kind. So that was a very special episode.

(Also, I now have lines drawn on my leg where the edges of the red zone were this afternoon, for comparison in a couple of days to see if the new antibiotic is working. Low-tech, but it works.)

Trying not to panic about drug-resistant anything yet, since they currently think they were just targeting the wrong species.
