A Moment of Eww…

Had to change the bandage this morning and check for infection.

So far, so good.  Swelling down considerably. And yes, my hand is orange.  It’s this new fangled wash they coat your hand in.  It has germ fighting powers for up to 72 hours!  And you can’t get it off!

If you look closely, you can see my surgeons initials.  They have to “sign off” to make sure they do the correct hand!

I had surgery on my left pinky a year and a half ago (shattered the bone playing racquetball). I hope you're right handed :) I do pray that your healing goes well. I had the same thing - had to be there at 7:00 in the morning for a 9:00 surgery. I think the doctors do that just because they can!

*shudder* Okay, that brought back some rather unpleasant memories from my own hand surgery! Get better soon!

It looks sore, and I so hope you got some great medication for that! :-)

Take care and know that we're sending healing thoughts in your direction!

Is that the hand you hurt when you got it caught in the mixer you are giving away? We probably would have thrown it away instead of giving it away!

Your hand will get better, but it probably won't heal in time to allow you to play the part of Martha Stewart in the school play this year.
