Preliminary Lab Results

The surgeon on-call called me with the preliminary lab results. Dr. H said, "It's a staph bacteria". I replied, "Oh great" (sarcastically). He responded, "Oh, no. Not THAT kind of staph, but the ordinary staph that lives on everyone's skins. They don't know yet if there is an anaerobic bacteria, too, or if this is antibiotic resistant. We'll know that tomorrow."

IN the meantime, I still have a low-grade fever. Felt chilly into the early afternoon. Have had a little Tylenol this morning and some Ibuprofen a couple of hours ago and my temp is still about 99.6.
