St. Anthony's Fire
It's one of those immuno-compromised things. Old people, people with chemo, alcoholics and AIDS patients get it. The left side of my face is swollen and red. I have penicillin capsules, and if those don't have a pretty dramatic effect by tomorrow, I'll go into the hospital for 48 hours to have an IV drip. It's an old disease, actually. Medievil peasant kind of disease, when it was called St. Anthony's Fire. Needless to say I would be tons happier without it.
Mostly I'm unhappy because until it is under control, no chemo. I was two weeks away from my last chemo and now that's receeding. I'm tentatively scheduled for chemo on Thursday. Pray to St. Anthony, I guess.
