In the ER!!! Not for the kiddos thank God. It was just for me. Nothing "major". For a few weeks I have noticed that my finger under my wedding ring has been getting irritated. My mother in law said it was from soap or detergent getting under it. I took it off for like two weeks and it cleared up. I put it back on and a few days later the same thing happened. SO I took it off again for a few days. Well, yesterday I was like "Oh, I want to wear my ring" so I put it back on and then last night I was like "Gosh Mark, look, Its already red again" and he was like "You should get it cleaned I bet thats what it is." I slid it back on and went to bed. At 5 AM I woke up, which is WAY early for me. The kids and I always sleep till 9 or after. SO I woke up to my finger throbbing. I sleepily tried to take off my ring and...wait it wont come off. I got up and went into the bathroom where mark was getting ready and told him and he said "put lotion on it"...Well, we tried everything, I mean EVERYTHING. Butter, vaseling, KY Jelly =). NOTHING worked. After all that yanking on it it was swolen huge and purple. Mark had to go to work and he demanded that I go to the ER, so I called my mom and she came and went with me to help with the boys. I went with the intention of them cutting it off. That would have been too easy though right. Long story short the DUMB doctor =) didnt want to "ruin" the ring so he basically spent 10 minutes pulling the ring off and SKINNING my finger....I'm not kidding. It is raw. I cried and trhrew up it hurt so bad and I kept telling him to please just cut it off because it hurt so bad and he kept saying "just a minute I think I got it." Well, after all that he then told me it was due to an alergic reaction and that I should just not wear it at all....IF YOU WERE GOING TO TELL ME THAT WHY THE HECK DIDNT YOU JUST CUT IT OFF!!!!!??????????? So for some reason after 5 years of wearing this ring I am allergic to it...I dont know but whatever, Im not putting it back on thats for darn sure! I guess I just need a new one for christmas or something!!!
PS My camera is dead but i will post pics of my nasty looking finger later. Its gross. Really there is no skin left. Its like red shiny wet looking stuff. Yucko!
