The infection is gone! :-)
Healing may now commence, not to mention a proper shower! Having gotten used to the lump of gauze (approx. two feet worth on Sunday's ER visit!) packed into my armpit for the past week, it feels weird now that it's gone. Surgical follow-up in two weeks to figure out what's what and, hopefully, why.
In other news, Will Eisner, one of the founding fathers of comic books, passed away yesterday at the age of 87 following quadruple bypass heart surgery. R.I.P.
