I went to the doctor and I have quite bad cellulitis and they are worried that there may be a DVT. I have to keep my leg raised - the GP was very firm about that. I have antibiotics and creams and I have to be v careful. If there is any sign things are getting worse it is straight back to the GP or A&E.
Tomorrow I am taking four small boys to the pictures. As it is a treat I had booked the VIP seats anyway so I will be able to keep the leg stretched out. Afterwards I shall be keeping the leg up.
There is always a bright side. I checked and the antibiotic I have been given is one I can have with alcohol - and darn it, I will drink at least two drinks over the next few days. Normally I wouldn't touch it, even if it should be okay, as alcohol is not really something that is going to make you better. However at the moment I could really do with something. Poor DH is not getting the rest he needs. Bear is resigned, although I am being careful what I say to him. Things will be okay.
Wean - challenge accepted.
