Yuck, that newer picture really shows the greying. Just Nilly's opinion here but I vote going to the hospital over calling the doc. It looks serious.

Keeping vibes for Josh and his thumb! Here's hoping it heals up!

Matt Says:
Actual professional opinion: Go to the hospital now. Don't risk losing the damned thumb. Depending on the amount of pressure in the compartment it may need to be cut open to relieve the pressure; this will need to be done in hospital.

One more vote for the hospital!

I hope he and his thumb will be better soon!

He's on the phone arguing with his step dad about it, but he told me he wants to go to the ER so I'm getting dressed to go with him. Side note: I have to open tomorrow morning at 5:30 and we have 55 dogs boarding that I need to walk... Omg I'm going to be so tired.

His thumb feels hard in the gray spot though so its better to get it checked out.

I had something similar after getting bitten in my index finger (several years ago). I waited. Stupid stupid stupid. I ended up going back to the same urgent care pretty much crawling in pain and having the weirdest most painful pins and needles feeling alternating with numbness.

My finger was saved (after being sliced open), but I have absolutely zero feeling from tip to knuckle. I have to be super careful as I've burned my self and done other stupid things to it since I don't feel it. And that sucks.

I rarely go the doctor for anything.

I would go for that though! It just doesn't look right, glad he's going.
