    I am alive and a little better, I went to the hospital again, and I WILL live!!! :woohoo: The infection had spread to the skin, and is now cellulitis.... what ever that is. The Er doc and the local hospital had even mentioned gangrene, and that wigged me out pretty bad, but things didn't get worse over night and the fever didn't go up.... so we will wait and see.

    I just spent 1 hr on the phone with windstream to finally get my dsl working again. So I will be on and off for a while.

    I really want to thank everybody for your thought and prayers and well wishes, it means a lot to me!!! You guys really are the best.

    I will keep in touch!

    Thanks Pete that made my day.... not. :)

    Thanks everybody else.... I am still the same, with a little more pain, so that has me concerned. Erica is trying to talk me into another trip to the er, but I say no way!!!

    I swear you are trying to make us come up there and kick your butt all the way to the ER. Listen to your wife she is right this time.

    Don't make us come over there, John. I have rectal thermometers and I know how to use them!! :scared1:

    I don't want to gross anyone out, but cellulitis is a serious skin infection which can spread into the lymph nodes & bloodstream. John....if your wife says you need to go back to the E.R., then listen to her please. She knows you better than we do & if she says go....then GO!!! The secret to a happy life is a happy wife!!
