Yesterday was a pretty big day. I was officially released from the care of the wound clinic. I also had my last blood draw for the infectious disease clinic I was seeing. I had called them earlier in the week to get prior test results, and the first round of post-medicine labs were clear and the "bone biopsy" taken from the final surgery came back negative meaning the infection was pretty minimal. Finally, and this is the big one, I was given the blessing by my surgeon on Monday to go back to work. So, Thursday I go back to work for the first time in four months. Even though it's going to be tough, I'm ready.
