The swelling was not going down in my finger and I was getting excema from bandaging. I rode my bike to the doctors yesturday and she said she thought the infection had gone into the bone. I had to ride home, get the car, go pick up David from work and drive to urgent care to get IV anti-biotics. They left the lock for the IV in and a home nurse to show me how to use the IV three times a day at home. The box of supplies an medications just arrived. The pain is down in my finger this morning. I have not changed the dressing to see if the swelling is down.
Needless to say, I am stocked up on pro-biotics and will be eating a lot of yougurt this week. After this infection is gone, I do not want side effects from them for months to come.
I need to stay close to home until the doctor says the infection clearing up and I should avoid cooking for the kids, plus it is hard to do too much with the IV lock in. I can work on the computer, so I should get some layouts done the next couple of days. I had a large batch of pod-casts download yestyrday, so I have plenty to listen to during IV treatments.
Here is a layout I did yesturday
