First off, a Happy Thanksgiving! 😄 STAY SAFE!
We don’t do big gatherings anymore so the whole Covid-19 situation doesn’t affect it much for us. Its just me, my mom and dad, and sister. And the dogs. They want their dinner too! 🤣
And now updates on my injured paw (hand). 😜
I’ve been back to the doctor since for another follow up. They said it was healing good. I don’t need to keep it wrapped anymore, though she said I might want to when I’m not at home. I don’t have to use that cream anymore either. Just put Aquaphor on it to moisturize it. Also, I’m out of work another week. Oh darn. 🤣
But yeah, its doing good. Doesn’t really hurt anymore. Just itches a lot. And its peeling. Which to someone that likes to pick at stuff is sooo tempting. I’m trying to be good though. 😛
There was one blister that had puffed up before I went back to the doctor. It had a hole so I just put a tissue and got the liquid out. Well, my sister’s silly dog clawed it and ripped the skin there. Its only a small spot, but I guess I should put something on there to prevent any infection. It was an accident though. We had just come home from the doctor that day and she was so excited to see us that she was jumping up and clawing. She gets really upset when people leave. At least it wasn’t the bad area of the burn. 🙂
So yes, I’m doing a lot better. Probably will scare badly, but meh. Long as I have use of my hand I’m good. 🙂
Its really one thing after another with me. 😅
Thursday at work I injured myself…spilled hot tea on my hand/arm and burnt the hell outta it. 🥺
At first I didn’t think much of it. It hurt like hell, but I’ve burnt myself before and I figured it was fine. I went and put some aloe junk we had there. I soon noticed some skin peeling. And this one guy there commented that it was a bad burn and needed to be wrapped or something so it wouldn’t get infected. I showed the manager and she told me to go home and have my parents take me to the ER. The guy that had looked at the burn earlier drove me home which was super nice. 🙂 I called my parents on the way so they’d unlock the door (this was like almost 5:30 am) 🤪
When I came in I was bawling. It hurt so bad. I never had anything hurt so bad. 😭 We went to an ER. They had me run cold water on it, then they put some liquid stuff on it to numb it, they cut open some of the blisters, put something like Neospoin on it, and wrapped it.
Had to make an appointment to go to another hospital to get it looked at at a burn center. Later the one manger at work called to check on me, as did the owner.
I went to the burn center today. They unwrapped it and looked it over. Its so ugly. Some raw patches of skin, and more blisters. But they said its healing pretty good. They showed me how to clean it, put some cream on it, and dress it. Supposed to do it twice a day. That part hurts a bit. I still hurt just no where near as bad as when I first did it. I gotta go back again on Tuesday.
I’m out of work till at least Wednesday. And work is going to be covering the doctor bills. Honestly I feel funny about that. My mom and sister said I shouldn’t since it happened at work. But, it wasn’t anyones fault. What happened was the filter where you put the tea bag, after brewing some unsweet tea, I went to dump the tea bag and the filter thing didn’t drain all the hot water like it should and it dumped all over my hand. So yeah, no ones fault. Just an unfortunate accident. I just feel weird about it…cause I’m not like looking to get anything from this. Just trying to do what I’m supposed to do. And no cause any trouble or stuff like that. 🥺 Just feel funny about it. *shrugs*
But overall I’m okay. Most of the burn was more on my wrist and arm. The top of my hand did get burnt, but the arm took most of it. At least I can use the hand part. Which means I can type. 😆 Still trying to take it easy on it, and not using it more then I have too since its very sore yet. Mostly where the raw skin is. But as I said overall I’m okay. 🙂
So, I went to the doctor yesterday. He gave me some new antibolics. Can’t say yet on whether they’re helping with the UTI. Too early to tell.
Work today was…rough. I was in a lot of pain and just felt sick from the nausea. Even after I was still in a lot of pain.
As for my bowel issue. Well I took some medicine I picked up from the drug store yesterday. I was bleeding again, but finally could go. Still blood though. My mom’s convinced it hemroids. Long as its not anything too horrid. One thing I have to say is the pain seemed to lessen after. Not sure if its a coincidence or not. But whatever.
Tomorrow as far as work I’ll see. If I start hurting bad I’ll just tell them I have to go. I do get sick of being the idiot that sucks stuff up. Especially when you have these wussy people who go home over everything. Well that would be one thing, but you get the ones who do it every week and pretty sure they don’t want to work. Just gets irritating when you’re pushing yourself. But, that’s also how I am too. Meh.
Just one more work day to get through.
