My sister-in-law Pat is a pharmacist and was on call Saturday, so we could not see Woody Allen’s “To Rome with Love.” But, if it is still showing, we might see it next Saturday. Either that or we might watch “Midnight in Paris” on Netflix. David said he reserved it for us and it should arrive in a few days.
Pat also told me I should be taking an antibiotic for my infected toes right now, so I made an appointment with the internist on call at the clinic. Dr. C is an Indian woman, who was born in India but raised in the mainland USA. When I told her I was going to tour northern India in November, she smiled and said, “Have fun!”
After she examined both toes, she prescribed a sulfa drug called Bactrim, which will kill the staph and bacteria on the surface of the infected areas. She told me to soak my toes in warm salt water, which will reduce swelling and help drain the pus and blood.
Finally, Dr. C advised me to keep my appointment with the podiatrist on Thursday. I hope to be on the mend very soon!
