Well folks, I did get to meet with Dr. Berger yesterday, and he was pretty concerned with the swollen pocket. He drained it all out, sent it off to be cultured, and then sent me into the hospital. I'll be here for at least two days, possibly more. Today I actually spoke to one of the doctors from Berger's team, and he told me that so far they haven't seen any obvious infection from the fluid. I'm a complicated patient apparently. They still stumped as to whether I had an infection at all or what else it might have been. By tomorrow at 3 or so they'll have the final information about the fluid. In the meantime I'm apparently a research project yet again.And no time reserved for shavasana....


  1. Thinking of you, Eric. I'm hoping that it's not an infection.

  2. My fingers are crossed that the cure to the fever (whatever's causing it) is quick. Glad that you're pursuing all theories.

  3. Thinking of you! Even though (or especially since?) I received your lovely prize of 40 staples yesterday. I hope the swelling gets better quickly. Sending you positive thoughts!
