Me on This Week's Book Week (47)

This Week's Book Week is like Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews but with a different name and more rambling. ;)

It decided to be a cliché this week and rain. ;) But it was weird, we had a few days where the weather was nice and not cloudy. Usually, it's raining a fair amount between mid-February and mid/late April.

The plague finger. *sigh* The bone density scan results came in and my doctor said they think the infection is in the bone. This is pretty serious. I mean, it's in the end of my finger, it's not like it's in my back or a major joint or bone, but it's still serious. It means that I'm now on a 6 week course of IV antibiotics that need to be pumped into me every day. I so see it turning me into a hermit. Hopefully I'll be less of a hermit than when I broke my ankle. Driving could be hard. I'm also curious if I'm ever going to get billed for any of my treatment. I never was for my ankle (apart from physio), so we'll see. *hugs for Canada's heathcare*

At the moment, I'm not sure what this will do to Me on Books in terms of me taking some time off. It's a bit different than when I broke my ankle a couple years ago. Still complicated, but this seems to be a bit more serious. Reviews for next week are scheduled but not the week after, I'm currently reading those books. Everything will depend on how I react to the antibiotics (I'm feeling good so far, and that round in January didn't do me any harm) and how easy it'll be to type with the line in my arm. Hopefully, everything will proceed as normal with me not on Twitter as much. Also, right now, there's an IV needle in the back of my hand so it's a bit hard to type.

I've started a Tumblr about the treatment that I'll be posting at every day over the next 6 weeks. I always want to be honest with you guys, and that's why I've told you what I've been going through with my finger. The doctors still don't know how I got this infection, but I've got it, and they're going ahead with treating it. The new blog is so it's kept separate from book stuff.

This week's reviews will feature Arclight by Josin L. McQuein (Tuesday) and Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike. :)
