The continuing annoying story about my thumb.
So off to the doctor I went and I can’t say it looked nice beneath the bandages. The doctor smelled the wound and said it smelled dead skin. I guess I should be happy he didn’t say it smelled like rotten meat 🙂 🙂 🙂 To be honest, it doesn’t smell that much but if one comes close one can feel some strange smell. So he gave me a new antibiotic and then a nurse cleaned the wound thoroughly with some special antibacterial soap. She even scrubbed hard this time so now I hope thet have gotten rid of anything nasty still in there.
This time they let the wound stay open so that it can start to dry, something I think they should have done as soon as they saw that it was infected. Now it finally can dry and start to heal properly, I really don’t mind if my thumb might look a bit strange in the future 🙂 🙂 I suddenly got hit by high fever, sweating like a pig and boiling inside. But suddenly the fever dropped like a stone and now I’m back to normal again. I guess the new antibiotic has started to work in my body because the thumb itches like crazy right now 🙂
It has rained most of the day and the wind has been almost as strong as yesterday. But small gaps allowed the sun to shine down on us as soon as my dogs and I started our walk. I brought the “new” camera with me and all photographs comes from that in todays post. I haven’t read the instructions yet so I had it on automatic the whole time. I have to say that it really is a good camera. It do have some problems towards pale backgrounds though, either the photograph becomes really dark or almost totally white 🙂 🙂 Otherwise it works very well.
I feel it will be an early night tonight. The fever made me very tired and that hasn’t let go even if the fever has. So I’ll make a pot of tea, perhaps a sandwich and then I think I’ll go to bed and perhaps read a book. Or I might look at some episodes of the sitcom Friends, I bought the first season the other week and have enjoyed a couple of shows now and again 🙂
Have a great day!
