It seems silly to continue counting out the days when I don't know when I'll get back out there on the trail. For sure it will be seven more days, at least until the round of antibiotics I am on is complete. Given this I'd say my current job is to try and figure out why my immune system hasn't been effective in warding off infections and what I can do about it.
BTW, the medications are doing a perfect job of clearing up my face and I'd say it's about 80% cured. I hate to take them but antibiotics really will do the job when necessary. Fortunately.
