Fever and Drug Update 2

Last Friday we discussed the fever and night sweats with The Closer. He had an idea to get me off of the approximately one million pain medications I was currently taking and reduce the dosage of the remaining meds.

Pictured above is just what I take before going to bed at night. I take even more in the morning! The result of his idea to reduce my medications has eliminated my fever! This guy knows what he's doing.

The night sweats aren't nearly as bad as they used to be, which is awesome, but my ankle becomes extremely uncomfortable at night. I'm concerned this will be par for course for the next several months.

Finally, I'm still trying to wrestle with the fact that I almost lost my leg. I'm pumped that both Brooke and my Dad withheld this information from me during the first and second surgeries. I would have worried myself to death, like I am doing right now.

What else are they withholding from me?


  1. Well, this seems like as good a time as any.

    Tony, there's something Brooke and I have been meaning to tell you...

  2. Andy, I already knew that the Washington Nationals season tickets I bought are ridiculous and pointless. I've known this for the last 5 year's we've been getting them.

  3. Open season!

    Since you asked...your socks are still two different colors.

  4. Tony, did you see this article in the Post on ankle surguries?

  5. Katie,
    Thanks for the link! I hadn't seen that at all! It's a great article, I'll make sure to make a post about it and how my ankle fits in.
