Bernie's unexpected visit to Mullumbimby Hospital

As you may know, we are on holidays at Brunswick Heads NSW.
Last week Bernie became unwell with a very high temperature & a red rash on his lower legs. This resulted in him being taken to the emergency department of Mullumbimby Hospital with Cellulitis - a serious complaint in his lower legs.(He had been bitten by sand flies & got and infection).
He was prescribed antibiotic & ordered to rest with his feet elevated
His conditioned deteriorated so I took him back to the hospital where they admitted him straight away.
Three days in hospital on intravenous antibiotics found his conditioned much improved.
He has been told by many people he is very lucky to recover so quickly.
Yes, it was a good idea to get him back in because cellulitis can spread systemically pretty quick if not treated effectively.

Sounds scary. Glad he is doing better. Is the fishing photo taken after the hospital?
