A Little Late
I am so sorry this is a little late, but I am minus a finger, a right index finger to be exact! Tuesday, I smashed it in my car door in the Starbucks parking lot. I had to unlock the door and pull my finger out of the lock. I am very grateful that it is not broken. I went inside and a Starbuck's employee helped me get to the restroom. It's a pretty big gash, and my finger has swollen to 3-4 times the size it should be, but we got it bandaged. She even gave me a free coffee!! She thought I should go to Urgent Care for stitches, and that is the wrong thing to tell me!! I finished my client calls, and then met hubby at Walgreens for first aid supplies. You see, I was a Girl Scout for over 10 years, I have a badge in First Aid, so I was qualified to apply my medical knowledge to the situation!! Actually, the next day, I did go to the doctors, but she could not do stitches, too late, nor xrays, there was a fire the previous day, just my luck! She doesn't think it is broken, fracture, she is not sure, the car lock went through my finger, if I went last night, I would have received stitches. She bandaged my finger, gave me instructions, and explained to my that having a badge in First Aid does not qualify me to apply medical treatment, WHATEVER! Hubby was really good in helping me finish Thanksgiving prep, and Colleen and her man came over and we had a really good time!! Only downfall, no stitching for me, I have no feeling in my finger and it is still swollen. I did attempt dishes today, it was too bad until I hit my finger on the side on a dish, then I was a little vocal!! One last note, I did attend Zumba Thanksgiving morning, and I did feel so much better!! Enjoy the start of the Holiday Season!
