I just got back from the ER. I managed to jam a 3/4" sliver, the width of a cheap toothpick, all the way under my thumbnail right to the base [Eek!] Since it was my right hand, and my left hand is next to useless for any fine motor-skills, off to ER I went.

The doctor and the nurses were very nice, offering to give me a note for work, a note for no housecleaning or dishes for 3 months, and a note telling DH he had to take me out to dinner for the rest of the year. [Smile]

The also gave me antibiotics and Vicodin, the latter of which I am going to indulge in as soon as the numbness wears off my thumb.

Typing with only one thumb is challenging, I tells ya!

Roadie, good Lord! That sounds terrible!

And the "explosion" wasn't anything, apparently. At least nothing visible. I've got 30 minutes left at work, then I'm hightailing it on home to find out what happened.

I was dusting/polishing a wooden 6-panel door, and one of the trim pieces on one of the panels slivered and jammed under my nail. I don't think I'll do that again.

Based on my experience with a damaged thumbnail after Thanksgiving, you definitely will. The nurse told me my thumb would be throbby when the digital block wore off, it actually felt like someone smacked it with a mallet.

I did something similar once, although the sliver did not go all the way in. Unfortunately, in my case, the wood I hit was rotten, the sliver splintered into tiny bits and got infected.

Given that infections swell a bit and this one was trapped under my (as it happens) right thumbnail, it was incredibly painful. I went to the on-campus clinic to get it taken care of. They gave me novocaine, clipped off part of my nail to clean up the mess.

With the pressure off the wound, I didn't even need painkillers once the novocaine wore off. And now, [mumble] years later, you can't tell it ever happened.

Noemi has convinced me to take my drugs right now!

Seaboe, that's what I was afraid of with this sliver - that it would get infected, so I didn't even have to have a stern chat with myself to get my behind into ER. It came out in 6 pieces.

I now know why bamboo shoots are effective as torture devices. I was willing to confess to anything just to make it stop hurting.

I have already dropped a line to the hospital administrator, who I know quite well, and complimented the staff. They were the bestest!

I will admit, on the fingernail front (and for the squeamish, no further details will be provided except through PMs), I've done worse.

Not as painful but lots more OMG, what did I just do? than the sliver.

Well, you might want to wait until the block wears off to see how bad it is. [Smile] It's possible it may not hurt as badly as mine did. I had blood and other junk building under a thin layer of nail and they had to go in and release the pressure and clean things up.

ETA: *looks down* Oops, looks like I was a bit late with that advice.

Saw Vicodin in the active topics and thought I'd drop in... [lol] That stuff was a lifesaver when my kids were little. I'd hoard it for the really bad days and then when my husband came home I'd take one and my body would stop vibrating and my head would stop pounding. It was great.

Roadie, in my haste to find a sufficient supply of #2 pencils for the SAT, I got a massive splinter from a drawer under my right pointer finger. And I had to take the damn thing anyway! [lol]

OK, I need help on two things for my gift bags (well, OK, three, but they're interrelated):

(1) What's a good recipe for mulling spices for wine?

(2) What sort of bag can I make to hold said spices (would some cheesecloth tied with string work?)?

(3) What kind of wine makes the best mulled wine?

I'm giving my boss/friend a basket with muffins and I wanted to include wine and mulling spices, for something different (she's returned to the dating scene, so something for her and BF to enjoy at night AND the next morning!). DH and I luurve the mulled wine, but we used to buy it already bottled from a vineyard closer to DC. I didn't have time to drive down there this year, so I thought I'd make my own.

Thanks in advance for the help!

ON a similar note, I got two double batches of muffins, a batch of brownies and a batch of hot cocoa made today. Tomorrow another double of muffins, brownies and sugar cookies, the wine and spices. Then assembly and wrapping and I'm done with all the prep work. Just in time for the work party Saturday night.

Sunday, I only have to make the mashed potatoes and enjoy time with DH and the kids. Yea!

[two pages already?!]

Lil' Miss is getting a kitten for Christmas [yes, and for life, I know I know [Big Grin] ] and he arrived today!

He's barely six weeks old, but the mother's owner was uber-keen to be rid, so here we are!

Silly wee Tinsel [forever to be known as Tinsy] came home, took one look at our other cat [who is a large, extreeeeeemly fluffy persian] and puffed himself up to all of his 6 inches, and spat in her face.
Needless to say, they are not bosom buddies.

I'm assuming she will come around because she has been so lonely, and had had 5 litters in 3 years before coming to us, coupled with his tinsy-wincy-ness and tendency to cry pitifully [when not spitting at his elders...]

Did I mention he is T3h cuteness1 Tomorrow, I'ma making pics for the Im in ur x doing ur y thread!

At least now I am sure why I feel like my chest has been stuffed with cotton at times.

I was diagnosed with asthma in my very early 30s. (I'm 37 now) My docs gave me, at one point, four different inhalers to try and control it. One inhaler was for emergencies, another was for three times a day, another for four, and the other twice. Nothing worked. They finally put me on Advair. After being tortured for over a year with emergency room visits and breathing treatments (and refusals by me to be put on steriods), the docs got off their butts and did something. (Not typical- it is the VA docs). A few months ago, they took my Advair from me (waaaah!) and replaced it with two inhalers that apparently do the same thing. I still liked Advair better.

Anyway, I was angry when I was diagnosed too (I used to be an athlete, dammit! How could I have asthma!). But then, I was glad to know I wasn't seriously ill- I actually had horrible thoughts of what was truly wrong with me. And, I used the asthma as a doctor's excuse to talk my husband into central AC.
