My finger..the saga continues...

On Sunday the 13th while at church my pastor prayed over my finger and annointed it. On Monday the 14th all the dead and disgusting skin peeled off of it. It wasn't all raw and hurting either. It was all dry and healed looking except for still being red. I thought it really looked good. People who had not seen it when it really looked bad still thought it looked bad. Sorry I don't have a pic on here and I forgot to take a pic with my PC camera. Anyway.... it continues to heal and I think we are going to have a long life together. :)

Last Saturday I went to urgent care with what we thought were flu symptons plus I had a finger that was red and a bit swollen. The doctor said my finger was an infection due to a hangnail. They gave me meds for the flue, shots for the pain and nausea and sent me home. By the time we got out of urgent care the pharmacy was closed so I wasn't able to get my antibiotic until the next morning.

Sunday when I woke my finger was even more swollen and hurting so Dale dosed me and went on to church.

Monday morning it was really hurting and I knew I had to go back to a doctor so we went and she gave me a shot and told me to soak it in warm epsom salt water and come back Wednesday, So today when I went in to see her she had done some research and feels that it is cat scratch fever, which makes much more sense than a hangnail. So I got another shot and have to watch not to break the water blisters on it and come back again Friday if it hasn't improved.

So, don't you think my finger is lovely? It is a pain, big time.
