Back in the Hospital

Well, I thought things were going good. I finished up chemo last week and finished moving in to my new apartment this weekend. But this past Saturday, I began noticing an itchy bump on my leg starting to form. By Monday, it had swollen up pretty good and started ozzing stuff. So, I figured I would go to the emergency room, maybe get some antibiotics and call it good. Figured it was a spider bite or something like that. Well, after I got to the emergency room, they saw that my blood counts were very low (because of chemo-therapy), and that I had a high temperature again. And the place on my leg, I just found out may be a staff (spelling?) infection. So, I'll be here in the hospital again for a few days. Luckily I thought ahead of time and packed a bag. Seems like every time I'm not even feeling good, it ends up in a hospital stay. Hopefully this little trend stops soon. This is getting old. The thing I don't get is that I feel fine. The place on my leg is sore, but other than that, I feel fine. O'well, I'll survive. I just want to hurry up and start getting well again. So, here I am again. I should get discharged by Friday afternoon, hopefully. If I find anything new out, I'll post another update.
