Lock up One Grate on My 503 Two Days Ago & Finger Injury

Lock up one grate on my 503 two days ago & finger Injury

Many clinkers ! Poked most out and pushed ones I could not get out back up so I could free the grate.

I avoided the temptation to test my strength again (which has resulted in broken grates) LOL.

I hate bending down ... so I have it a day of burning with the grate in an off-kilter position prior to taking corrective action (sometimes I can re-free a grate after waiting a day).

To make matters worse...during my home improvement job (installing about 1K or hardwood flooring) I banged my pinky ... not too bad...then my kid stepped on it when helping with the install of a few boards...ballooned up to 2x. Lanced it and went to the doctor today...he thinks its infected so some antibiotics.

But how can you get an infection w/o a cut ... beats me. Stupid finger. Slowing me down in my install....almost done with 2nd BR with 2 smaller BRs to go to finish.

I have had about 6 serious infections since 1980 without breaking the skin. The antibiotic that helps you will make you more likely to get another and will effect the "good" flora in your body that keeps the "bad" at bay. My last one almost killed me. I have lingering effects of having to much of a "good" thing to this day. I take a mild antibiotic every day. Someday an infection or inflammation will kill me. ;)
A little tongue in cheek as inflammation kills everyone.......

Most issues associated with antibiotics are due to overdosing I've heard....and ya, you can mess up yer good bugs.

The CIA is controlling my cat, making him add clinkers into the stove while I'm not looking.
