How is your finger? Did you feel safe from the virus while you were there? Hope you are okay.

I updated the other thread. Thank you for asking :

I am very glad I went. I actually cut the artery in my index finger!! Luckily, the doctor at the urgent care center was also an ER doctor because I was very close to having to go to the actual ER and get it fixed. Long story short, he was able to stitch my finger up. I still have just a little bit of a leaky type bleeding (sorry gross, I know!), which he said would be normal until it seals in up. I also cut another finger, but it did not need stitches. My hand is really sore today! Two fingers are pretty swollen and the cut without stitches will just randomly start to bleed out from under the bandage. With the artery cut, needless to say I am glad I went. He said there was no way I was going to be able to get it to stop bleeding on my own and the numbness at the tip of my finger was already the beginning stages of permanent damage.

Now, as far as the urgent care center itself. Wow! Amazing! I went to one that is right in town. When we pulled up, they met me before I could even get out of the car and took my temp. They brought the papers to me. My DH had to wait in the car. He was not allowed to go in at all. I was the only patient there! We were talking while he was stitching my finger up and the doc said if someone comes in with an injury and they have any kind of respiratory thing going on, even if they know if is just allergies, they cannot treat them. Three people were cleaning the whole time I was there. They are taking every precaution humanly possible to protect the people coming in. I felt as safe as I possible could during this day and time.
Today, my whole hand hurts! I had to get my mom to help me pull my hair up! ! I have 2 very bruised fingers from the shots and boy howdy! If I move the wrong way!

I am so glad you had it taken care of and felt safe there! It sounds like they are doing everything they can to keep spread down.

I hope you feel better SOON and recovery quickly!
