This is not shaping-up to be his year.
He cut his right thumb yesterday on a machine at work. It was painful and swollen, but didn't look too bad. Apparently today it got worse FAST, hot and puffy with redness iiiinnnccchhhhiing up his arm...Yeah. He called me a few hours after I dropped him off asking to be picked-up at the local clinic. Boss had brought him in (since it's a worker's comp. injury) and they'd gone
and given him a tentus, an antibiotic iv, antibiotics and pain killers. His thumb looks like a sausage! So he'll be out for the rest of the week with his arm in a sling and on bed rest, but hey, that means I get him for 2 whole days! Lucky those drs. seemed to be on the ball, because I don't know if this was blood poisoning or a staph/strep infection but it could have been bad!
