Oozing Pus Like a Slow-Drip Coffee Pot


Sometimes it's so hard not to say "I told you so." But in this case, I think I'm a gazillion times justified, just as long as I leave the juvenile "nanner, nanner" bit out of it. I feel the need to state this before informing you that my too-stubborn-to-go-to-the-doc-sooner Hubster has a friggin' Staph infection.

I predicted that he developed Staph in his biggest (gaping-est) ATV accident wound, the shark bite looking chunk of skin on his ankle that continually drips/oozes pus like a slow-drip coffee pot.

As I joked with a bunch of moms outside the gate at the Lawyer's school this morning (a place I'm getting cozy with being now that I'm on morning drive-in duty), the Hubster's left foot smacks of James Caan's inflate-o-matic feet in Stephen King's Misery movie. I'm bummed Google image search wasn't able to turn up a single image scrap of stomach churning Caan's Hollywood effects enhanced clod hoppers. You'll just have to imagine swimming in feet sick on your own.


Another image that also comes to mind when I look at the Hubster's Staphylococcus bacteria factory of an ankle are the Flintstone feet of Mike Myers' "Fat Bastard" character. Keep all this on the DL, please. The Hubster thinks his inner tube sized ankle "looks just great, honey."

On a serious note, the good doc ordered a full blood count work-up, a thorough excavating (cleansing) of the wound, a double strong antibiotic cocktail to cut the narcotic painkillers with and a Staph culture to confirm what he says he "already knows for sure."


If the infection doesn't improve within two days (that is if it goes beyond the permanent marker outline the doctor scrawled around the red swollen areas in question), the Hubster will call the hospital home until otherwise ordered by that same good doc. I can't get over how pissed I am that this never had to escalate to a Staph infection and a dangerous flirtation with Toxic Shock Syndrome (something I know of only from tampon packages).

If only the Hubster were half the hypochondriac I am, he would've had this thing in the can a few days ago, when I first told him the Hell hole wound was a pus making station that required something other than NOTHING, for Christ's sake!

So, here's my day in gore, with a little pre-crash bonus pic at the end. Notice the Hubster's imaginary protective gear. Oh, I'm such a bitch sometimes. At least I know it. I could use a quick lesson in sympathetic nursing, but for right now I'm still worried and miffed.


Yadda, yadda, yadda. Repeat to self: He's going to be just fine. He won't land up in the hospital. Staph ain't nothin' but a chicken wang' dang. Calm the heck down.

Oh my goodness woman. I am glad that your boys are okay. My hubby likes to deny any sort of injury. I completely understand your anger.

Staph infections are naaaasty. I hope the drug cocktail he is on keeps him out of the hospital.

hang in there mama!

dood, i literally shouted out, "oh my god! that's EXACTLY what it looks like!" when i read your comparison to james caan's foot in misery. seriously.

i mean, i was also worried, and am sending good thoughts to your hubby for quick healing.

but i admit i was thinking mostly about misery. :-P

That wound is DISGUSTING!! Men!!

I can't resist making one more male-directed, judgemental and disparaging comment...boys and their bloody toys!

Hang in there!

Oh my goodness! My husband is exactly the same - I had to nag him and nag him about an infected blister last fall, and he is a friggin' doctor! Good luck getting rid of the nasty staph bugs.

What is it about men and doctors? I can't get my hubby to a doctor unless he has some bodily appendige (sp?) hanging off and it needs to be stitched back on!

Hang in there...I'm sure he'll be OK.

Oh now that is just too gross! I'm with you; I would have had the thing checked out almost immediately. Why do men wait so long???
