Not all the time. When I messed up my thumb it was literally, only an emergancy room

Doesn't he work with his hands? Impress upon him what losing his thumb would do to his ability to work....

Hoping for a good update....

It looks some infected. Hyia's dog bite looked a whole lot like that before it cleared up a few days later. IT is still that raw ugly red. The dog really nailed her one, and clamped down.

He hasn't mentioned being worried about the cost, but I'm pretty sure the thought has crossed his mind. I've already told him not to worry about the cost when its a medical emergency. He doesn't have insurance. I'm the only one with health insurance.

He's an electrician and carpenter so he uses his hands a lot in his line of work. He's still being stubborn about going to the ER though. Ugh seriously why are men so darn stubborn sometimes???

He has been icing his thumb a bit today and the swelling has gone down. His thumb is back to normal size but there is still that gray area. Still has no feeling in half his thumb. I told him that if it doesn't look considerably better by tomorrow morning then he needs to go to the ER asap. I just hope he listens to me.

Have him read this thread. There is some expert advice here.

So Josh if you are reading this:
QUIT BEING SUCH A MAN AND GO GET IT LOOKED AT!

I really hope he starts to take this seriously... I'd hate to see him lose his thumb just because he's being "a man". They SUCK when they're stubborn like this!!

I'll still be thinking a lot about you guys until this is resolved!
