Infected

Now if you’re of a delicate disposition you may want to skip this post altogether. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. My friend Ryan has an infected finger. He has no idea how it happened. Maybe a cat scratched it. They’re very scratchy. Anyway his finger was swollen, painful, hot to touch, pus – the…

Boot

So, my foot saga continues. Today I went to the hospital and met with the orthopaedic team.
