Don't know what was up with my hand. My thumb was sore around noon. Black skin around the cuticle around 8pm. Swelling up at midnight. At 2:30am the whole hand swollen and pain was incredible. Went to the ER in the next town. Xrayed. Nothing. Ultrasound showed filled with fluid. 5 shots in my hand, and the cut the back of my thumb straight down and front of it around the nail. Antibiotic I.V. I have to soak it and keep it draining. Hand feels better, but thumb is a mess. 14 days of pills now. Spider bite? Don 't know. We did have a great trip, though.
Good Lord! That's awful! I hope it heals quickly & the antibiotics work!
My labs came back on my thumb/hand issue, and they are switching me to a different antibiotic.. I have gram positive cocci. Hmm. Will pick up the new stuff in the morning before work.
I also prefer to watch chicks hatching over tv. Just filled up the incubator, so 21 days. We've been watching the meat chicks wolf down food. That's interesting, too.
