Monday update

The wound continues to heal nicely as the latest photos show. The current plan now is to allow the "hole" to fill in and then do a skin graft to the whole lot to cover it up quickly. It sounds like this won't be too far away now which is good.

I have a new batch of antibiotics (tetracycline and fucidin) which apparantly my strain of MRSA is sensitive to. A two week course which will hopefully kill off the current infection although the bacteria hang around on the metalwork so this might be a regular treatment.

Confused everyone today by walking from the car to the clinic rather than using a wheelchair. A bit slower but much more satisfying.
