I'm not dead yet...

... on top of all else, I got a staph infection from donating blood. If I don't lose my arm, regularly scheduled blogging should continue sometime this week.

Yup. It's Lent.

'Baby come back' - that's a song lyric - anyway - 'miss you much' - that's a song lyric too!

A question......how does one get a staph infection from donating blood?

Karen said...

Praying for you.

Only because it seems like it's meant to go with your post, my Captcha word is "suckey"

Julie said...

Oy.
Get some Hibiclens soap. I've had MRSA three times. The stuff helps.
Get better soon. We miss you.

Augh, so sorry. Prayers.

Kathleen said...

hope and pray you're doing well with this and hope you're back soon.

It most certainly is Lent. I've been wearing a purple band/bracelet that we've shared with our 8th graders that says JESUS. The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal have reminded us to Joyfully Endure Suffering Until Salvation. And guess what? For the past 2 plus weeks, the sciatica has flared worse than it ever has. Can't sit, can't sleep, the foot and leg are now numb and sometimes have difficulty walking. I'm glad it's Lent. The reminders from that bracelet is making it much easier to endure.

Starting to wonder if we live in a third-world country. So, presumably the needle wasn't clean? How else does one get staph from donating blood. Eeeyuck!

Oh my goodness Kat! God bless you with quick healing. How dreadful for you.
There is something vastly wrong with being able to get a staph infection from donating blood.
It is Lent indeed.

Yes you are, you just don't know it yet.

Sorry to hear of your indisposition. Fortunately I am barred from donating blood due to a nasty little bug I contracted when I was in the Navy and which I am told I am now a carrier of.
