The Red Menace

Kate Beckinsale Pearl HarborWell it’s been a full ten weeks since I had a serious health issue, and lord knows I was more than do for something awful.

That something awful is cellulitis. Again.

I woke up at 4am with searing pain on my left thigh, and it was bad enough that I couldn’t get back to sleep. I am working the day shift today, and even though Mrs. Earp said my temperature vacillated between 99 and 100, I sucked it up and went to work.

Yeah, that was a mistake. I feel worse now – the rash always gets more painful as the days go on – and my head has been burning up all day. I was supposed to submit an arrest warrant this morning, and the squad was shorthanded, so I dragged my lazy ass in.

I’ll do my best to keep posting on a regular schedule but as I told the kids, right now “Daddy’s down for the day.”

UPDATE: As of a few minutes ago, my temperature was 101.5. Hooray.
