Day count suspended

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. 


  1. So glad to hear the meds are working! Yay! --julie o.

  2. I agree with you about taking medicine. Only if I really need it will I take it. And I think that is why antibiotics when prescribed work for me. I think this probably applies to you too. Maybe a supplement or two taken daily to boost your immune system while on this journey might be an idea to ponder. Unless you have been known to get infections a lot before this trip you may just be experiencing "Life happens." And "Shit happens!" Get well and back on the trail my friend.
