1. YIKES!!!
Get it out...quick. The longer it's in there, the longer it's going to hurt once it IS out.

21. You might consider calling a hand surgeon. I have had splinters
that broke off and/or were unable to be removed any other way except surgically. One was already inflamed and hurt like hell (it was wood). Another metal splinter broke off when trying to remove it and that one had to be taken out immediately because it was near a nerve.

If the material is left to fester, you could get a nasty infection.

Worth a telephone to your doctor to refer you to a hand surgeon. They do amazing work! Good luck!

10. But what a whirlwind
vacation that you are having. And to end it in NYC with a bunch of DUer's! What could be more wonderful.

When you have time, you'll have to fill me in about your adventures accompanied with pics! But take time to rest and recoup first. No pressure here.

And . . . its good to hear from you! It's a good sign that you haven't been around the lounge. Just proves that you've got better things to do.

Geez - usually I'd suggest putting tape on it and pulling it out.
Under the nail, eh? Why don't you get this guy to help you out?
