Not Admitted – Thankfully

In my previous post, I wrote that I was heading to the hospital for a follow up with the doctor and anticipated being admitted. Thankfully, that didn’t happen.

Instead, upon inspection she decided the abscess in my neck seemed to be reducing so ordered a double-strength dose of IV antibiotics and another return visit Saturday afternoon. 

If all goes as planned, I’ll receive one more IV Saturday and then move to tabled antibiotics for another four days. Hopefully, all does go as planned.

Thanks for the comments and kind wishes shared on the previous post. I will return to more interesting subjects soon!

  1. Thankful you were not admitted and am sending more good vibes and healing lights. Hopefully the antibiotic treatments clears it up completely.

    • Thanks for your kind words and best wishes. Yes, the strong antibiotics seem to be doing their job. As of Monday afternoon, I’m about 90% better and have two more days of treatment.

  2. I’m glad that you didn’t have to spend time in the hospital. I hope that double strength of antibiotics will do the trick. I also hope the side effects are tolerable.

    • Thanks for your well wishes. Yes, the treatment seems to have been working and no side effects. (Although not being able to drink does seem like a horrible side effect!) Two more days of meds and all should be cleared up.

    • Thanks for your kind words and best wishes. Yes, the strong antibiotics seem to be doing their job. As of Monday afternoon, I’m about 90% better and have two more days of treatment. The only negative side effect: I wasn’t able to drink alcohol at the brunch I hosted yesterday!
