Exhausted



The path of the penitent man gets broken by the cheers of joy when the tests of contrition are fulfilled and one is presented with the "grail gift" Last October when I stepped on a nail with the ensuring infection, coupled with the hours spent in treatment and infusions paid off. Today on Ash Wednesday after blood tests and xrays, both my Doctor and my infectious disease specialist unanimously concluded I have been successfully healed! I've been given a clear bill of health. The specialist would still like to see me in 6 months just to be absolutely certain but the worst has been, by all appearances, averted.

So happy to hear the infection is fully cured. Like the others say, please be more careful around boards with protruding nails.

I had like 5 infusions since then aqt $5K a pop.. that's $25K of meds. Would have been cheaper to cut off my toe! But it is back a pretty pink with just a dimple where the nail went through.

It's NOT really my job to clean up the shop. The other guys can do it from now on. I don't know what it is making me so physically tired I am getting plenty of rest. I wouldn't even be awake now were it not for Ruby needing out.
