Modern medicine wins
I was a little bit concerned that things would get out of control last night. Fever, especially. But the first two pills of Cipro apparently went on the attack immediately and what has now been confirmed in diagnosis, infection, is already under control. After a great night's sleep I went for my morning walk early and am already back eating breakfast and looking forward to a nap. My physical constitution has always been resilient so I'm bouncing quickly back.
And a 'whew' as I dodged a bullet. Thanks to all the science practitioners out there.
