Update 8-15 pic on page 2. He came home last night in so much pain he was throwing up. After a trip to the ER he was diagnosed with
Tenosynovitis and may need surgery. They had to lance his hand and scrape it out. He has to go back this morning to have the gauze removed.
Dh woke up yesterday with a spot on his finger. It has become increasingly swollen and red. It's also oozing a bit.. He thinks it may have been a spider?
Update.... Dr. Thinks it was a spider bite. It's infected and as of yesterday started to turn black in the middle. He started an antibiotic yesterday morning and an anti inflammatory.
