Very lucky with a staph infection

A little over a week ago, I thought I might have a pimple on my elbow.  Unfortunately, within a day my elbow was fairly red and swollen and within three days my arm below the bicep was starting to look like a balloon.  Wife M forced me to the doctor (I was hoping it would pass), who said “whoa” when I showed him.  He put me on two strong antibiotics and has me resting my arm.  Within 5 days, my arm is much better although there is still fluid on the elbow.  He wants me to continue on the antibiotics and if the fluid doesn’t resolve during that time he wants me to see a specialist for the elbow.  In the meantime, still no gym but I cant help feeling I dodged a bit of a bullet with that fast moving staph infection!  I’m grateful to my doctor.
