Broken Finger???

Now before you get all excited...let me just say that it PROBABLY isn't broken, just sprained, but it sure hurts like it is broken! So here is the story.... on Friday night Chris and I were playing games at our neighbors house that lives right behind us and so when we left their house we were HIKING through the snow and of course Chris had on tennis shoes with no socks, (the snow right now is about up to our mid-calf) so I tried to grab his shirt to keep him from running to the house (thus making him stand in the freezing snow even longer...hee hee). As soon as I grabbed him he shot off like a bullet, taking my hand and especially finger with him. Well, my finger got bent back the wrong way and YOWZEERS it hurts so bad! I kept re-injuring it every time I used my hand, so I finally created a splint using a broken pencil and some electrical tape...pretty resourceful I would say. It's not pretty, but HEY it does its job. You should see me trying to type with it, I keep hitting the wrong keys. I was supposed to play the piano tonight for our baptism preview, but that was definitely out. You don't realize how much you use your finger until you can't use it. Here's to a speedy recovery!

Ouch! Sounds like it hurts. That is no fun! And I agree, you don't realize how much you use something until you can't use it.

I agree you are very resourceful! I have a bad glue gun burn on my d-e typing finger and it ain't fun, either!

Oh, poor finger. Sorry about that, I guess that's what happens when you try to make a man stand in the snow with no socks on.
Happy mending.
