Not Much Change

Today's report is that not much has changed, but it's not getting any worse, and there was sufficiently less pain today that I felt comfortable walking (with a bit of a limp) to the Wigwam and getting at take-away breakfast.

Leg Show, Day 7

Swelling seems about the same to me. Slightly concerning is that it looks a bit like I'm starting to accumulate water in my left foot.

Leg Show, Day 7

The rash doesn't seem any worse, and I'm not sure, but maybe it isn't itching as much.

One suggestion in the comments has been that this is possibly a tick bite, which makes Lyme Disease a possibility. They did not take a blood test or a lab culture to test for it; however, checking the CDC web site on this subject, the suggested treatment is exactly the same type of antibiotics I was prescribed. Also, I'm not showing any of the other symptoms other than the rash, so I remain cautiously optimistic.
