Hi, gals! I'd really appreciate it if you could remember me in your
prayers for the next day or so! This sounds stupid, but I went to
the dr. this morning for an achy finger! LOl! Actually, I had
noticed a bump in the end of my finger, above my first knuckle, 5-6
weeks ago. I watched it for a while, and nothing happened. Until
Sunday, when I realized just how sore the entire knuckle had gotten.
And it was very swollen! According to the dr., I have gotten an
infection in the fluid around my tendons (probably from a paper cut
or some other small cut I don't even remember.) It's spread fairly
slowly, but he was still worried about it. He put me on a potent
antibiotic, and I have to go back tomorrow afternoon. If the
swelling hasn't gone down by then, he's going to put me on a IV to
get the antibiotic straight to the infection before it goes any
farther down my finger.
Stupid, I know...but still a little serious!
And....I know I've mentioned this before (usually when my hormones
are on their ***oline), but dh and I have been trying to get
pregnant for about 10 months now, to no avail. Well, my cycles have
been crazy lately, going as long as 36 days and as short as 13! So,
I have an appointment with my ob/gyn tomorrow afternoon as well. The
nurse asked that dh come with me so we can determine our next course
of action, which will probably be clomid to stimulate ovulation.
I want kids terribly, but am still kind-of uneasy about this! Dh and
I have been praying lots about it, and lately our prayer has been
that God would tell us when it's time to see a doctor about why it's
taking so long to get pregnant. Well...I have no doubt that He's now
telling us it's time, and that's been confirmed through some other
things that have happened. But...I'm still uneasy!
I'd really appreciate your prayers right now as I get through these
next two doctor's appointments!
Thanks, guys!! You're the best!
