No philosophical points of view or reflective questions in this blog, just a medical update on another uphill climb.

I’m on day 18 of debilitating and excruciating pain from the bone thats exposed from the hole behind my ear. The bone is infected and I have a CT early next week to assess the degree of infection. I’m on heavy duty antibiotics which make me tired, nauseous and clumsy. The teamwork between the Dr’s in Boston & Milwaukee is quite impressive and definitely validates the effectiveness of Electronic Medical Records. The goal is to get the infection under control and then have the hole closed in March. I’m told they will need to take some fat from my tummy to fill in the hole and that’s OK because it’s a target rich environment. I just wanted to provide the valuable members of my network with a current update along with a quick reminder that sometimes no news means bad news.
