I had to go to the hospital this morning because my leg was infected, however i hurt my leg a couple of afternoons ago when I was reaching for something behind the gas furnace.
I thought my leg was far enough away that I could reach the item without hitting the gas furnace, however I ended up with a big burn on the side of my leg.
I put some burn ointment on the section plus went to bed, the next morning, I was in a lot of pain plus my leg was throbbing. I took something for pain plus fell asleep. I spent most of the afternoon in bed due to the pain. I got up this morning plus my leg looks awful. The burn from the gas furnace looked infected so I decided to go to the hospital. I evaluated into the emergency room around 10 plus the doctor saw myself and others in record time, and he wasn’t entirely cheerful that I didn’t wipe the wound with soap plus water when the skin was burned. Dirt infected the wound plus the doctor thought I should be admitted for observation. He said the infection looked bad. He wanted to deliver myself and others around or two of IV antibiotics; Since I don’t have insurance, I opted for over the counter antibiotics plus a couple of afternoons off work, my leg hurts alot plus I have to lay for more than seven hours on the task. I hope the pills plus the time off labor will help my leg heal, because I cannot afford to be out of labor for a long time plus I cannot afford any more doctor visits.
