today is a holiday apparently. So I am waiting until tomorrow to see a real docot.
the swelling is WAY down, just a little bit numbed and slightly swollen. I was able to drain a lot of it this morning.
my lymph nodes are swollen, which indicates they are fighting an infection, but I won't be sure how serious until tomorrow.
In my opinion, the doc is going to slice me open, drain it like an elbow, and put me on antibiotics tomorrow. Does that sound about right to anyone??
thanks for the well wishes everyone. I never ever get infections and this is legitimately scary for me, I just realize that I'm over-reacting because everybody has a horror story about infections.
