Cellulitis

My HandIf you were reading the blog earlier this week, then you might have noticed that I got stung by an angry wasp at the farm. I ended up going to Patient First and they were worried about Cellulitis in my hand, so they dosed me with 80 mg of Prednisone and Augmentin. The swelling went down after about 72 hours and it didn’t turn into Cellulitis, which is good, but the Prednisone was playing havoc on my body, it was of course not allowing me to sleep, and then there are the withdrawals from the Cymbalta still.

It almost looks like a Micky Mouse glove, haha.

Welcome to the Average Joe Weekly blog. This is basically my place on the web where I can help spread some of the knowledge that I have accumulated over the years. I served 10+ years in the Marine Corps on Active Duty, but that was some 25 years ago.

    So I normally read these from the most recent backward, but I had to skip ahead to find out what you did to your hand. That looked like a very serious sting. Glad to hear that you have recovered from it and are no worse for the wear.
