Off to the Hospital

It seems to never fail, every year, at least once, I end up getting some sort of infection that requires medical assistance. This year will be no exception. The night before last, I woke up with a very sore and itchty finger. I chalked it up to arthritis, and left it at that. Last evening, laying in bed, my whole hand started to itch and swell.
This morning, my hand is enlarged, hurts and itches at the same time. The swelling has even started up my arm. It is all very red, and so, with that, I have to assume, once again, some little critter bit me, and caused an infection. I have to believe that it is an allergic reaction..........


If you notice, my left hand is quite larger than my right, so I guess i'll be sitting in a dayum waiting room most of this Saturday................. I hope your day is going better than mine! :)

  1. Ugh, I left a comment and it didn't stick. Darn Blogger. I hope it is nothing serious. I don't envy you having to sit in the waiting room. Let us know how it goes

    1. I spent 5 hours in the dayum hospital. I can't even pronounce or spell what they called this infection...... I have to have 5 more IV treatments of antibiotics, so they left the IV needle right in my arm. They just wrapped it with gauze bandaid. The swelling and redness have started to leave it already, so I'm hopeful the rest of the treatments will clear it all up! :)
