Title: Freak Accident!!
Post by pinkbubelz on Oct 22nd, 2006 at 10:44am
Okay, I won't be posting much for a few days because I had a freak accident today...

I was closing my sliding glass door and got my index  finger caught on and edge and sliced it open--
got a 1/2 inch gash and it even cracked through my fingernail...

I had 8 stitches in my finger including 2 THROUGH my fingernail...so... typing and doing anything with my right hand will be a chore
for a while....

Of course this had to be on my dominant hand.....

At first I thought I had sliced down to the bone but the doc told me that it wasn't quite that far down.... Now I'm taking
Darvacet and Motrin... I'll just be lurking untill this heals up!!!

Iris!  Take good care of yourself while your finger is mending.

Thanks for the good wishes...

Good thing I was a pianist... makes typing easier... LOL

The meds made me a bit dizzy & nauseous.... :-(  

Got lots of sleep today...will rest tomorrow. The stitches will be in for 10 days.

Yes, that's why I prefer to just suffer through pain!  My system is just like a "delicate flower"! ;)

Oh, yeah, Iris--are you blaming the dizziness on the drugs now?  I thought that was just part of your personality.   :-X

Wow sorry to hear what happened.  I did something similar to that many years ago so I "feel" your pain.  8-)

Just try some short term absolute therapy. Citron should work just fine. Take every 15 minutes as needed.

Hmmm... I'll pass on the Absolute, but some Grey Goose might do the trick! ;-)

Better yet, some Romanian Vodka (smooth as silk--that stuff is dangerous!)

I'm kicking the meds to the curb... LOL.
I'm a Tomboy... :-) I'm pretty tough.. LOL
