Ouch, I had to go to the Doctor today. I have one of these( above) on my arm. I had a tetanus shot. Oh they hurt the next day. I have a cut on my finger that kept getting worse. I have been playing doctor with it for 2.5 weeks. I knew this morning that it was cellulitis. Which is blood poisoning or the infection that leads to it. So for the next three weeks I get to take a few pills that make me feel yicky but do the job.
Now onto the rest of my day.
We( MOM) had the ultra sound of the neck today.( carotid artery) They are looking for blockage that could lead to a stroke. I don't have a clue but there were some areas that I questioned. Didn't look or sound right. So now we just wait. Hopefully someone will call us next week and give us some results on all these tests.
I came home and took a much needed nap. Now I have to scoot off this and make meatloaf for Mom tomorrow and chili for the rest of us. We are having a small family dinner with two of my kids and their others. It will be a fun evening and I think Mom and I could really use it.
Hope you have a great weekend.
