I know it's a little late for Halloween phrases, but I had to share this one so you guys don't make the same mistake I did.
BOILS! They are kind of are a pain in the "wherever you have one" and I have had my first which ended up with a first time trip to the ER for me yesterday. Really?? It couldn't be something more exotic or tragic. Nope. Just a stinkin' boil that I couldn't treat on my own.
It sent my sugars to 295 (upon check in) and lead to 6 hours of excruciating pain while waiting to get seen. Then there was the IV, my first one as an adult, and the pokes for blood and such. My normally normal blood pressure was sky high and I just wanted relief. And it came, thank goodness!! Even though the doctor said my lab work is good, he warned me I am not out of the woods yet. He fears for more infection. Followup is tomorrow where they will unpack my wound and repack it to heal from the inside.
My husband loves sharing the gory details, as he had a ring side seat, but I will spare you that.
I just say this to encourage you, if one of the most uninvited visitors should appear, to get it taken care of as soon as you can. That infection in my body has messed up a lot of hard work. So keep an eye on all parts of your body and don't let things get out of hand.
