There’s a hole in my finger, dear Liza…

And it wasn’t there before.

Anyone out there have an abscess before? It was fun. It’s like an ingrown finger nail that just decides to not get better, and swell up, and become very, very painful.

Did I mention that it doesn’t get better?

So I have a fun little trip today to the ER. And when ever I say ER, I always think that it’s some crazy emergency, but nope, just some minor surgery that needed to be done. I’ll be brief and spare you all the gory details, but I do want to share these two with you.

1. It was the oddest thing when he was numbing my finger. He injected a few cc’s of whatever it was he used and I felt it. It was gross. It could feel it bubbling under my skin and moving around. Makes me shudder just thinking about it.

2. It was cauterized with some fancy stick. It turned my skin all black and scary looking. Here’s a pic: you can kind of see where the hole is too.

ANYWAY, I’m off to St. Louis in the morning to hit the ground running with my two feet, ten toes, two hands and most of my ten fingers. I feel like I’m packing light, and that kind of scares me.

Wish me luck and stuff!
