Slight Improvement

I guess that it's a good thing that I'm just sitting here at my computer all weekend at virtual Norwescon 43, given the need to rest and (I hope) let my leg recover.

Leg Show, Day 6

Today's report is about the same as yesterday: slightly less swelling again.

Leg Show, Day 6

I think the rash is not quite as widespread as it was, and it's definitely not as warm as the touch. I haven't felt the need to apply ice packs today, although to the extent possible, I've kept the leg elevated and it does seem to help.

I continue to have pain in my leg, but it's nowhere near as bad as it was three days ago. I shan't be running any races soon, but at least I can get from room to room in the house.
