So Thursday I was suppose to fly to Vegas to surprise @thejimriley for his birthday and see the boys. I’ve been having knee issues, and had a CT scan planned for the day after I got back. When I woke up Thursday my knee was hugeeeeeee and rest of my leg was swollen. I was advised to go to the ER, and never left. They did surgery the next morning, clearing out tons of infected tissue and fluid, and taking out the screw in my knee. I’ve most likely had this infection for a long time (months or more), so they are keeping a close eye on it. The past few days I’ve had a fever of 102 deg +. When Im cleared I’ll got home with a PICC line and administer anti-biotics 4 times a day for the next 6 weeks. So lucky number 13 surgery done, and hope it’s the last.
