Not again!!!

Most of you know that at the start of the year, about 4 weeks after Zeke was born, I came down with a MRSA *staph* infection in my right foot. It took about a month and a half for it to clear up and for the hole that was in my toe to close up. Everything was going great and I was only having to see my foot Dr. once every 2 months, instead of every day or every other day! I was so excited! Then, yesterday morning I woke up and my left foot hurt the way my right one did at first. You see, when my right foot first started to hurt I thought maybe I had stubbed my toe in the night and broke it. A few days went by and my foot was so swollen I couldn't walk and I had red streaking up my leg. That is when my toe formed a HUGE blister like thing which turned into a hole that went almost all the way through my toe. Anyway, so yesterday morning I woke up and my left foot felt the way my right one did at the start of all that mess. I went in the bathroom, turned on the light, and you wouldn't believe it.....the SAME TOE ON THE LEFT FOOT was starting to swell and get red. I didn't fool around this time! I went right to the Dr. He pu tmy right back on Bactim, Cipro, and Clinadmycin. Also a topical antibotic that I apply to the area twice a day. He also sent me to the ER for a round of blood work...8 tubes you can imagine. So, he said he will look at my bloodwork when it comes back, and if he doesn't like the numbers, he is going to admit me for 3 days for intese IV antibotics. So as the title of this blog is not again, I wish this wasn't happening again. I have now taken 4 pills each of the oral antibotic, and it seems to be getting worse not better. :( Keep me in your thoughts and prayers. If I could only describe how painful this is...
