So, the weekly trip to the wound clinic today reveals a deep infection has popped up in my left foot leading to a prescription for Cipro and a new off-loading knee-length brace that I can't remove (it has a special security zip tie) and threatens to trip me with every step, especially up the stairs. No more showers for me for a while. It would have to be 108 in the frigging shade. Must stay off my feet, sez the man with the medical degree. Easy to say, hard to do.
