Several people have asked about the splinter injury I incurred last week. Well I never did make it to the doctor. Much too busy with the move to take off the time to do that. Besides, after the first day it didn’t really hurt, it hasn’t turned red or discolored at all. In fact, I’m beginning to suspect that maybe it went into the bottom part of the nail rather than into my flesh. It seems o be working its way out now. The nail is kind of pulling away from the splinter and I can see more of the tip. If I’m not too tired before bed, I might try soaking it with Epsom salts as somebody suggested.
