I don’t know if it was the antibiotics, the pain relief, or the afternoon sweets and coffee at Cafe Sicilia, but I’m feeling much better tonight.
Stupidly, I thought I could go to work this morning. I think it was the Voltaren Rapid that made me think I was invincible.Although initially greeted with a bunch of “how are you feeling?” comments, it was soon followed up with some “it looks like you’re leaking” observations.
And indeed I was. There was gunk coming out of back and the pain relief was wearing off. I came home took some more pain relief and went back to bed for most of the day. By mid-late afternoon I was starting to feel okay again, wandered off to purchase some bandages to deal with the the gunk, and then wandered down the road to Cafe Sicilia for coffee and cake.
I swear the coffee and cake did more for me than all of the drugs combined. Or maybe it was their hotter than hot waiters? :) Ok, that’s an exaggeration. But I have to say the coffee and cake tasted a hell of a lot better than Cephalexin, the anti-biotic treatment program I’m on. Seriously, I have never tasted or smelled anything quite as disgusting in my life.
A few hours later, I’m bandaged up, and I’m feeling quite good, so will head into work for a few hours tomorrow (there’s stuff I have to get done) ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s visit to the surgeon.
