just a quick note to let you know why i've been so quiet.
on wednesday i went to emergency with an infected, swollen finger. i thought they'd give me antibiotics and send me home. instead they ran tests galore, took lots of pictures and x-rays and brought down an orthopedist. within hours they sliced-n-diced and took copious samples. then i was admitted so they could use stronger intravenous antibiotics. susan picked up gimme from my car and took her to ursula's for boarding.
i got out friday morning and went to get gimme on the way home. i'd hoped she would be okay being picked up by a friend and staying at a familiar place. instead she was very stressed; whining, crying, and pacing the floor the whole 2 days and nights. she slept for 12 hours straight when we got home. she is still tired and sleeping a lot.
i have a follow up appt with the chief of ortho tomorrow morning. my finger is much better in many ways, but looks 'weird' to me. on the off chance they may want to do something and keep me there, i've scheduled an appt to drop gimme off on the way to my appointment. i think it will be less stressful that way. if she doesn't need to stay then it will just be daycare for the day.
cross your healthy fingers for me...
