I ended up soaking my hand in epsom salts to get rid of the inflamation. I also put neosporin and a bandaid on it.
I have been out working really hard in the garden. Really hard. Digging weeds, loosening the soil... just in case we get rain.
I worked so hard, I bruised my hand again, I had cut it, bruised it and then bruised it again. It gets so swollen that it hurt to move my fingers. But guess what!! While I was working in the garden I got a package in the mail.
|Isn't he just the cutest thing.|
It happened to be a Thermal Aid Bear that I had won on the ThermalAid Twitter Page. Perfect time for it to arrive. I ran in the house read the directions and put it into the freezer.
I had a lot more work to do so I went back outside to finsh weeding etc.. all the time babying my bruised hand. It really hurt, but I wanted to finish.
So I finished, came in the house, got my bath and got ready for bed. My hand was just throbbing by this time so first. I soaked it in epsom salts, took some Rutin and Vitamin C. (Rutin is suppose to shrink capalaries, so I thought it might work... Not sure why I took the vitamin c)
I then got the cute little ThermalAid Bear out of the freezer and held it in my hand. The coolness felt so good on my bruised swollen hand. I actually fell asleep holding it. When I woke up, this is what my hand looked like.
Much better and I can move my fingers much easier. My hand is still a little sore so I am going to baby it today and put the Thermal Aid Bear on it later.
Not only does this cute little bear cool, but I can also put it in the microwave to heat it and use it as a heat pack. This is just the cutest heating pack I have ever owned.
Thank you so much Thermal Aid for having such a great giveaway .... And I won!!!
