I have had an infected cuticle for about a week. It didn't get better with salt water soaks and frequent dressing changes. I went to the doctor to get some antibiotics.
I got the prescription. Oh, and he ripped my nail off. Despite him filling my finger with lidocaine I fainted from the pain.
I am still in a lot of pain. I count down until my next dose of acetaminophen with codiene.
I will write more when I feel better. This pain is exhausting, not to mention I have severe mobility limitations on my right hand due to the giant dressing I am sporting right now.
I am very grateful to my Grandma and my friend Jen for coming by today to help me out. A mom usually doesn't get to call in sick.
