So..... I ended up in hospital with a possible infected ankle joint this whole last weekend.
It all started with some poison ivy on my leg, that I left too long to get steroids for.... once I was done my 6 day pack of those, my ankle swole up and turned red.
Sat morning at 3am I woke up to it throbbing and headed into the clinic...who promptly sent me to the hospital!
2 days in hospital
I was released on Sunday late afternoon with a month long prescription of antibiotics, orders to stay low on Monday and keep my ankle up. I'm working today, but headed home at noon.
Thankfully, the infection is external to the joint, but still very painful and sore and serious.
Needless to say... I'm taking it easy. This afternoon will be couch time and ankle up.
