ER visit

My first ER visit. I developed an abscess in my arm pit over the course of the last 6 days. Started out as an ingrown hair type, but I could not get the pus out. I know. Gross. But this was my entire armpit. Dr said it was the size of a grape, but I’m going to say it felt like a grapefruit. Photos show first us goofing off, the after the hard work…whew! Glad it was over with.

    Glad you are OK….
