Monday my DH cut a finger while taking apart our old washing machine. It bled a lot but it wasn't a large cut and he didn't think he needed to go in for a stitch or two. Tuesday his knuckle, near the cut, felt stiff. Wednesday night he said if it wasn't better by tomorrow, he was going to Urgent Care. Thursday morning he went to Urgent Care. They gave him IV antibiotics and then decided to send him home with oral antibiotics. He was supposed to go in today for a follow up appointment but things just got worse. He was in quite a bit of pain and the red, swollen area was increasing. So, we went back to Urgent Care and from there, he went in to the hospital. He definitely needs to be watched.
Here I am, up in the middle of the night. I had to get up at midnight to give our Weimaraner a pain pill. I set the alarm but woke about 10 minutes before that. I haven't been to sleep since. Our lab was very restless about an hour ago and finally went to the door and whined so I let the dogs out. Now I'm wide awake. Nights are an easy time to worry so, of course, I'm doing that. Tomorrow, or should I say later today, is going to be tough.
