Re: today....Judy---

Thanks for that info, Judy. I had a lot of lymph nodes removed from my right arm when I had breast cancer (18 years ago), and I have to be really careful of it. I don't manufacture enough white cells to combat infection in that arm. I use a lot of soap and water, antibiotic ointment and band-aids. :-)

Oh I'm OK. It's a little numb so very little pain. Actually hurting more now
that some feeling is returning. Ran a splinter into my finger & it broke
off. Cellulitis, antibiotics, then an abcess, so opted for minor surgery to
heal it up a little quicker. I ended up with 7 stitches. The ER doc said
they've been seeing some resistant bacteria in "yardwork" wounds this year,
so I've been very cautious about getting crud on my hands until I was sure
it was well healed. Took some extra time off work too. Didn't want to do
patient care with stitches still in.

I hate splinters -- had one a couple of weeks ago that was so long it was
easier to just pull it through the other side.  Glad I didn't run into
bacterial problems!

Did they have any ideas about why there are more problems this year than
in past years?


P.S.  Make sure that you all have up-to-date tetanus shots when you're
     gardening!  Even getting dirt in a wound can cause problems if
     you don't have one.
