1 month later, its starting to bruise. I think its the start of the bruising combined with the pressure of the splint. But lemme tell ya, it is gonna be PUR-thank you! lol wowza And I feel better tonight. My stomach isn't rolling, and the headache I've had for the past couple days seems to like caffeine. lol But I'm still watching my temp, just in case. Thanks for your concern. I feel better having it checked.
