Dexter-ized My Finger

Couldn't take the agony anymore so I went to the doctor today. He cut it open and squeezed out all the gross goodies inside and sent my little unwanted guests to the lab for a test to see what type of infection I have(-:
Antibiotics and another trip to see the doctor tomorrow and Sunday.
Off work till then at least(-: That is the good part(-: The shots and all that gross stuff had me pretty stressed out. I actually passed out! I am a real chicken! I don't like going to the doctor on a normal day! Add shots and cutting etc and that makes for a lot of anxiety! I will take a poke from a rose thorn or barbed wire anytime over a shot!!!!! Oh well it had to be done so I was told(-:
Yippeeee no more throbbing pain! I may even get some sleep tonight!!!!
Want to see a picture???(-:
Its gross...
Yup I knew you would...
Here it is...


See that little red packing material? Doesn't it look like a little tiny butterfly? That's what I thought(-:
You would have to be there to appreciate that one(-:

Gosh Cindee that looks really painful. Glad you went to the doc. I would feel the same about going as you though. It sounds like they are going to take care of you. Hope you sleep good tonight.

I'm glad you went to the Dr. Sounds like it could have been serious if you didn't.

Glad it's feeling better. Sometimes things do have to look worse before they look better.

Have a good weekend, but take care of that finger.

Grace Peterson said...

Sorry Cindee, As much as I like you as a garden blog buddy, I had to scroll away from the subject of your consternation. I think I might be equally prone to fainting.

I'm so glad the doctor was able to help you and that you can actually sleep now.

Keep us informed and know your friends are with you in spirit.

Oh dear I was afraid you would have to have it lanced before it got better. It has to feel better with all of that pressure gone.Sorry you had a faint though. I feel the same way about knives, any knives on television shows. I just cannot look.Big fat whutz here. LOL!
Hope you get good news on the finger and rest well now.

Cindee that's horrible - I'm glad you went to the Dr. I agree I'm a big baby about shots and anything yukky anymore.

Bless your heart Cindee! Soooo glad you went to the doctor. Infections like that can get really serious. I had to giggle don't like doctors or shots, but boy you can sure take out a snake with a shovel!! :)
Take care!

WiseAcre said...
