Short update: footnote

Went back to Kings College Hospital for a toe check-up. The doctor looked at it, said how much he thought it had improved, cut off a little bit of dead skin, and promptly said that I should go back on the antibiotics for another two weeks just to make sure that we’d “gotten all the bugs”. Luckily, this time I’ll only be on amoxicillin and flucoxicillin, and not on either the shot-in-the-bot or the tablet-with-which-you-must-not-drink-any-alcohol. I’ll just have to ensure that I take the flucoxicillin on an empty stomach.

I’ll be taking my last dose at breakfast on the day I leave for the US.

    Well, I am pretty abstemious and hardly ever drink. Occasionally I’ll have a beer or a glass of wine with dinner, and also very occasionally a bourbon and diet coke. But compared to most Brits, I’m a teetotaller. Many British men think nothing of 7 or 8 pints of beer a night. I would be awash and just sitting on the toilet all night if I drank that much. I agree that a little is not bad for you. However, lots of alcohol is bad.

    For the beginning of the story, see this link. It’s a really sad story. I’ve taken so many antibiotics in the past month I’m surprised that any bugs within a 2 mile radius are still alive.

    I’m going to help my brother and sister sort out the mess surrounding my brother’s divorce and the questions surrounding my father’s estate. I’m also going to visit my brother’s Masonic Lodge while I’m there.
