I came down with cellulitis yesterday (actually Sunday evening). I'm on antibiotics already, thank you on-call doctor, 24-hour pharmacy and especially my sweet, sweet [personal profile] loracs. I was disappointed because I had been feeling so physically strong earlier that week. Anyway, as often happens in my life along with the truly sucky stuff, there is a little good. I had managed to horn in on [personal profile] serenejournal and [profile] leback's lunch date yesterday. We were originally going to go out to eat, but as is often the case with cellulitis and antibiotics for me, the first few days make me very weak. So I wasn't up for going out to eat. I tried to "un-horn in" on the lunch, but they both decided to come over to my place. [personal profile] serenejournal made what I was told was a very tasty polenta. I tend to shut down when I'm sick and only really felt like drinking coffee and having a peanut butter and butter sandwich. We spent a truly lovely afternoon together. [profile] leback even brought me some peanut brittle (a favorite of mine). My joke for the afternoon was, "boy do I know how to show a woman a good time". Since the last time I saw [profile] leback she visited me in the hospital during my attack of pneumonia. The next time she sees me I'm down with cellulitis. I am a party animal!

I'm glad that your attempts to bail on us were unsuccessful -- it was very much a pleasure seeing you! I am willing to believe that you *might* be better company when you're feeling well, but that's setting a pretty high standard. :-) You can horn in on my lunch dates any time you like!

Get well soon! Mark's had cellulitis twice, both times I had to take him to the hospital for IV antibiotics every 12 hours, for five days. Since the first visit was in the late evening both times, I ended up doing a run before bedtime and again in the middle of my work day.

Wow. We've mostly been lucky with oral antibiotics in this family, but I do think that [livejournal.com profile] dbubley and [livejournal.com profile] sogwife have had IVs for it at least once.

The first time I got it, they gave me an IV.

If by "IV" you mean a painful shot in the hip/butt, done that twice.

Thanks, I'm still a little weak, but once I'm on the meds I respond pretty well.

Well crap, that sounds miserable. I'm glad you're being taken care of, at any rate.

I hope you feel better soon. Mostly, though, I had to tell you that the word for "cellulite" in Spanish is "cellulitis". So I automatically read your first sentence as "I came down with cellulite yesterday." It took me a moment to work out why you'd be on antibiotics for that. Also, I kind of cracked up at the idea of suddenly coming down with it!

Heh, Gosh, I don't know what happened. Went to sleep last night. Woke up this morning and *bam* I was fat.

I got over the connection between being fat and having cellulite the first time I (when I was teaching preschool) encountered a two year old boy, not one bit fat other than what toddlers usually have, with cellulite all over his butt and thighs.
