I'm home! Thank you all so much for your outpouring of love and kind thoughts! As James said, that was some of the best medicine I got.
I am still on two days full bed-rest, and I started a new 10-day round of two oral antibiotics, but it looks like our vacation is on. The doctor said I will have to sit in the back seat with my leg up a lot. They took an x-ray and a sonogram of a lump on my ankle (the doctor had drained it last Friday) right before I left. Hopefully they won't show anything bad, and we can go on with our plans.
Long-term, the doctor said that I need to keep my legs and feet from ever getting cut, scratched, or cracked (I have actually cut myself with the rough skin on my feet), I have to keep them moisturized, I have to massage them, I have to keep them up as much as possible when sitting, and I have to wear lovely compression hose when walking and sitting. Actually, with the dress I was wearing today, they just looked like I was wearing white tights, so other than the fact that it was around 90 degrees, I didn't look too weird in them. Not that anyone saw me once I left the hospital. lol
I missed you all so much! Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. I love you guys!!!
