Well folks its been a strange week. Last Sunday (the 1st May) I had a recurrence of the Cellulitis (a skin infection) that knocked me for six a few years ago. Once again my left leg flared up and within a few hours looked like I'd poured boiling water all over it. Sunday itself was a bit of a blur as the forty degree temperature that accompanies the infection meant I was delirious. After an ambulance ride to Accident and Emergency (and a 3 and a half hour wait for antibiotics) I was eventually admitted to a ward.
I'm still in hospital and will be here until at least Monday. I'm on an intense dose of intravenous antibiotics and until the doctors consider it safe to move me to oral antibiotics I will have to remain in hospital. I feel fine now, although my leg isn't a pretty site and hurts when I try to walk. The main problem I have is utter boredom. I've read several books (reviews in due course!) but nothing changes the fact that I'm essentially stuck in a bed and unable to do anything.
All this means that BLMA is going to fall silent for a few days. I had several posts prepped and scheduled for the week just gone and they have now posted. But I've run out of stock articles for now and needless to say I'm not getting ANY painting or gaming done. Hopefully I'll be released from hospital next week and normal service can resume soon.
