The New Verdict . . .

Went to see the Infectious Disease clinic guys and had an awesome talk with the MD there. I am to have a PICC line started on Monday first thing, get my first dose of Vanco, and get set up by the home care nurses bing, bang, boom. I will give my own doses, but I think they just want to arrange for my dressing changes and supplies.

The plan is to be on IV vanco and po doxy for two weeks, have the surgery to remove the stimulator but save the leads, go without the stimulator for about a month and continue with the IV meds, get reimplanted with the stimulator, continue with the IV antibx, until officially clear. That is awesome!

Here is the newest pic (warning to Joanne at this point . . . . )
