This is my first suspicious bruise. I really like to bite on my finger since my teeth have been hurting. I do not have any teeth yet but can bite down pretty hard. Mom and Dad thought we were going to have to leave vacation early and bring me to get my first infusion, but we ended up being able to stay and we got it to go away all on its own. We contacted my Hematologist and they told us that the thing they were worried about was if there would be too much blood in such a small area. In this situation, the blood wouldn't have anywhere to go and my finger would swell up and cut off the circulation to my finger tip. Luckily it never got that bad. It still hurt alot and I had a hard time bending it, but with lots of help from my mom, everything worked out ok. Every time I would fall asleep, my mom would put ice on it for a while. When I was awake she would wrap it all with gauze padding and bandaids so if I put it in my mouth I could not bite down on it. It was a full time job for my parents to keep my finger out of my mouth. I kept trying to trick them and sneak it in, but they were way ahead of me, After a few days the bruise went away. I put some pics on here of my finger so you can all see it, let me know what you think!
Today we came back from my first vacation to Attitash Mountain Village in Bartlett New Hampshire. My mom's family has been going up there for over 20 years. We have 3 time shares and this year we had 22 people come up. It was alot of fun. I got to go swimming, shopping, and saw a train for the first time up close. I took a bath with my dad and my rubber ducks, all 207 of them! Half way through the week I got a bruise on my finger, but I will post about that in my next blog. The week flew by and before I knew it, we were packing up to go home. :( I can not wait for next year so I can go up again.
