Since typing with my current finger arrangement is awkward, instead of replying to all comments, just wanted to thank everyone here in one post. Don't worry, am keeping an eye on things, and if I have any sign of infection will go to the doctor. Right now, I have mummy fingers - Nin wrapped each one in gauze pads, then wrapped the two fingers together with more gauze. Not really any pain today, so that's a good thing.
In other news, first real winter storm has descended. Very windy and rainy with snow on the higher mountains around us.
