And...just in case you thought I was bluffing - here is my infected thumb !
I am happy to report that it has finally started responding to the antibiotics, and it's nice to be able to use it a little more ! If you look carefully, you can see the track the needle took under the fingernail, and how far down it actually went ! No wonder it hurt !
Hopefully I will be able to play netball and get lots more scrapping in before the holidays end... now if only my left knee would join the party ! *sigh*
