Another Update on The Hand

Now referred to as The Claw! The darn thing somehow got infected and, after waiting 3 hours to see my doctor on Wednesday, I’m back on antibiotics. It’s not improving so far. Of course it would have helped if I hadn’t accidentally smacked it hard yesterday right on the stitches while trying to open the coffee canister to make Thom’s morning cuppa! Doh. So painful! If things don’t start improving soon (I’m giving it until Monday) I have been ordered to go to Emergency. Sounds like fun, huh? This close to Christmas and all. Tomorrow is our family’s annual Solstice Party at my son and daughter-in-law’s. I’m NOT missing it. Meanwhile I’m taking my meds and probiotics and trying to keep The Claw out of trouble. Wish me luck.

Hope you all have a very Happy Solstice! It’s at 3:03pm PST (recalculate for your own time zone) tomorrow, December 21st. Yes, here in the Northern Hemisphere the sun is coming back and the days are getting longer! Yay! We need some positive energy and light around here for sure.

More when I can type better.

Soak that thing in Epsom salts or even plain salt water. Epsom is the better choice . . . And get well soon.

So sorry to hear about your infected wound. I hope it heals quickly, so you can get back into making.

Happy Solstice!

One interesting thing about antibiotics (other than curing what ails you) is that they cause arthritic swelling to go down. I found that out when I was struck with a bad infection on a cut finger. Unfortunately it's not a cure.
Anyways, hope you feel better very soon, and Happy Solstice to you too!
