OUCH!!

Thank you to everyone that has expressed sympathy for my nasty burn!  If you are squeamish, don't look! : )  That's the inside of my arm yesterday afternoon when I was showing it to my friends in the lab.  Gross, huh?

I almost went to the urgent care last night, if it wasn't after 10pm I probably would have gone.  It was getting red streaks radiating out of it and hurt like crazy.  Instead, I took 2 NSAID's and went to bed.  After about 30 minutes it stopped hurting and I fell asleep.  It pretty much looks like this still this am but I am going to just keep taking the anti-inflamatory drugs and hope for the best.

For those of you concerned about that dog.  No, I didn't get rid of her but she is still on my "list" of not so favorite people right now.    

I didn't get any sewing done last night, but I did read a little bit.  I am really enjoying the series of books I am reading.  The title of the one I am currently on is The Saxon Shore. The series is by Jack Whyte, and I realize how much I really do enjoy reading.  the ever amazing Liz the Whiz has hooked me up to books on iPod but I haven't had an opportunity to get to that yet.  I will, I definately will.  

Speaking of Liz the Whiz (LTW), she got herself a fancy schmancy long arm, a Statler!!!  She is keeping her other machine too.  I am excited about the design opportunities with both machines running.  Yeah, more toys!!

I'll keep you up to date about the arm.  It is healing.  Takes longer when you are no longer a spring chicken!!  Thanks for stopping by.

I'll secon Natalie and add a dose of quick healing vibes! Have you had the aloe vera on it? It really does help burns.

Love the Halloween jars and glad the blue works...almost looks like webbing on the floor too with the swirls.

Oh no! You poor thing! I hope you're starting to heal and it doesn't take too long to get back to "normal." I love your Witch's Jars quilt--wonderfully creative!
