|This is how my finger looked on Saturday morning. It's not as swollen or red now. The redness is cellulitis which ran up to my armpit. It is mostly all faded now.|
I feel fine with the exception of my finger that is swollen and hurts at the wound site that is just over a joint.
The infectious disease dr. tells me only one of the two blood culture vials shows bacteria, so it may be a case of the vial being contaminated, We will know what the culture results are tomorrow. If the clean vial still shows no infection in my bloodstream I will go home. If not, I will be here until it is clear. Please pray that I don't have an infection in my blood stream. I very much want to go home and be with my family and rest knowing that my baby's life isn't in jeopardy.
All this because I somehow closed the car door on three of my fingers and one got cut in the process! Watch where your hands are when you close your car doors!
