We’re all concerned about Wren’s hand. Here’s an update:
I was back at the ER today, as directed. Wounds were infected, I’ve a low-grade fever, hand is very sore. They called in a hand surgeon; he injected local and debrided. (typing one-handed sure is slow!). It has wicks in now to drain infection and is wrapped and splinted from fingertips to elbow (sigh). I’m on antibiotic; will go back again tomorrow to surgeon … if it hasn’t improved enough it looks like they’ll admit me for IV antibiotics. Fingers are crossed that won’t be necessary.
It’ll probably be a few days at least before I can post to Rheumablog; could I ask you to pass the info above to our friends via your blog?
Ouch. Infection is what we were probably all afraid of. I’ll be praying for Wren’s speedy recovery. Let’s all send her our warmest wishes.
