The saga continues... (Day 8 -11)

Day 8, then last two days have been more restful than previous. The docs are pleased with the effects of the antibiotics on the infection, blood-sugar levels have been down and blood pressure getting back to normal levels at last... that being said, I've still will most likely have at least another 4-5 days in here, unless I can get off this antibiotic drip machine...

For the food lovers, choices for my food menus over the last two days are as follows (bold selection = what I had...)

Saturday Lunch

Soup - Chicken Noodle (great for the soul)

Main Course:
Home style Lamb casserole
Spinach & Ricotta patties with chargrilled vegetable relish
