I’ve mentioned previously in my ouch posts that somewhere along the line between stabbing myself and now I have picked up some sort of superbug/infection that could cause major problems to post operative patients and as such beginning this morning I have to put ointment up my nose three times a day, wash my entire body and hair with a special antibiotic soap (hair’s only every other day) and then powder my armpits and groin with an antibiotic powder, in addition to this I have to obviously wear fresh clothing (I do anyway although trousers may go a couple of days) but much to Mrs Bunny Chows joy and delight also a fresh towel and bedding daily.

English: A ruptured MRSA cyst.

This photo from Wikipedia should give you an idea of why I’m going through with the de-lousing.

If you really want to know more about MRSA (no it’s not just one bug) but a type of bugs then have a read through or just accept that whilst it doesn’t seem to have affected my life so far too badly aside from never-ending coughs colds and sniffles and more spots and the like than your average pubescent.

Wish me well and think of the poor long-suffering and very sweet Mrs Bunny Chow.

    I’m sorry, I don’t actually ‘like’ what you’ve told us, but you know what I mean. Wow, sounds very unpleasant – I hope the bugs die a sudden and violent death, so you and the Mrs can get back to a normal life! 🙂

    • thanks Zelmare, I know where the intention lay, luckily the bugs thus far haven’t especially affected my life other than a couple of irritating spots and lots of sniffles, but then again I live with two small children so they could be equally to blame for them.

  2. Ug, I agree with the person who commented before me, it is hard to “like” this post. Hope you are better soon.

    Hope you get better soon… Wish the operation is a success.

    That looks terrible. Get better soon!!!

    • thanks Bassas, thankfully I don’t look like that and assuming that the delousing is effective then I won’t do anytime in the near future

    Best of luck with your surgery and with getting rid of this bug. It’s a nasty one, as I understand.

    That sounds dreadful! Hope it clears up soon. Mrs BC has my sympathy…. oh,and you too of course. 😉

    As one who has severed his thumb only six months ago, I wish that you get this resolved quickly and with the least amount of pain. Good luck.
