Oh how true. My mother had a pot of boiling water on the stove for pasta. A friend of hers came in the door and before my mother could say anything, she lifted up the cover to the pot. She proceeded to inhale deeply through her nose with her eyes shut to see what my mother was cooking. A fast trip to the ER. Need I say more?

Go to post #117 one page back. The whole story starts there. Not a pretty story.

Vit,
Alix did tell the story somewhere. Maybe a different thread. I'm sure she will come around soon and let you know where. If I run across it, I will PM you. ;)

Yesterday, horrible migraine (weather related likely) and went home from work. Slept all day, felt better. Went to hug DH when he got home and ripped off the ginormous blister! GROSS! Polysporin but no bandage big enough in the house. LOTS of polysporin. Went to work, found BIG bandage and more polysporin.

Later today, hand aching...some swelling but no redness or heat. Went to doc for meds. He wrapped the crap out of my hand. I could have been a mummy! LOL. Taking antibiotics now, but took off giant bandage and put a big stick on bandaid on it.

Whine! Whimper! My arm hurts! Stupid infection. If this gets worse and messes up my trip I'm going to be über ticked off.
Sorry! Petty Vents, post #400

I learned that my croaky voice still doesn't work with voice activated software! So, how do you communicate when your fingers and your voice don't work? Have the best hubby in the world type for you!

I am surprisingly not down about the fact my hands are getting worse. they are my everything for cakes, typing, cooking, etc. But it is another challenge that I can figure out!
