The good news is my finger will heal itself. So, no surgery or anything like that! The doctor drilled two little holes in my finger nail to train all the fluids. I know - drilling holes in finger nails sounds like torture - Right?? Wrong!! There's nothing in your finger nails to sense pain, so it was a piece of cake.
So, all I have to do is rub a little bacitracin on the boo boo, wrap with a bandaid, wear the plastic splint finger thingy, and I'm good to go. So good, I'll be back at work tomorrow! The nail is exposed at the top of the splint, so I wrapped some more tape around it. Who wants to look at that gross mess, anyway??? Definitely not my students.
Back to the doc in two weeks.
Here's a pic. You can tell I'm feeling better. I picked a nice lively backdrop for the photo shoot!
