Update on 'Poorly' finger


Update on finger - it's broken - (stupid finger) - now it's strapped to the next one to support it. The longer bones are OK, apparently it's the knuckle that's either cracked or displaced, and if it's not better within a week or 10 days I have to take it to the hospital.

I'm supposed to rest it - haha!! I had nothing but facials, aromatherapy and hot stone massages at work - I can't do those with two fingers strapped together so I had to take the strapping off - WOW - did I notice the difference. Cleaning the bathroom became pretty impossible too - a friend suggested I wear rubber gloves - nice though but I think her brain was 'hurting' .

I decided not to do any challenges this week, just concentrate on my DT cards and catch up on commenting. So - can I now apologise to anyone who has received strange comments from me - typing and hitting the right key, infact just hitting one key is is virtually impossible and it's taking me forever to just leave one comment (LOL)

I was just wondering how your finger was and now I know! I was on my way here to ask... I'm so sorry its so bad! But you better listen to the doc and take it easy so you aren't dealing with it longer or do serious damage! Behave yourself lady!

Please take care and I hope you are back as good as new in no time!

Oh no, hope your finger is healed soon. I wouldn't worry about cleaning anything but not to be able to make cards, that would be a disaster.

What did I tell ya !!!! :-)
me being a nurse/midwife married to an orthopaedic surgeon you tend to pick up on things ! :-)
Try to keep it strapped as much as poss if you don't the bones will move and apart from hurting it will take longer to heal cos the bones will move and not have the chance to knit together :-(
Am surprised you re still managing to make such fabby cards ! :)

Ann said...

Oh Heather so sorry to hear about this - for goodness sake let your finger heal. I'm sure the design teams you are on will understand. Don't make things worse than they are already.

Chrissie said...

I was so sorry to hear that your finger is actually broken! For goodness sake let it heal and forget about doing things that might aggravate the healing process, even if it means abstinence from card making for a short while!
Get well soon!
