One-handed Blog Post

Nice, huh? So yesterday morning after we went grocery shopping I managed to get my hand in hatchback when closing it. Yeah, yeah, how does that happen? I have no clue. So it obviously was really painful and bleeding and blue. Awesome. Well by about 5pm it was getting worse an the pain was spreading a bit so we decided to take a quick (ha!) trip over to Urgent Care, and 3 hours later I came home with this baby.

First the doctor looked at it and took an x-ray. Luckily it wasn't fractured. But then the torture begins. The doctors uses this cauterizing thing to BURN A HOLE IN MY FINGERNAIL to to let the blood out. He then proceeds to squeeze the blood out through that hole, all the while telling me to "Look, its coming out. Look, look, see its almost done coming out!" Ha. Jokes on him because had I looked there was a good chance he would also be cleaning up puke. So anyways, as if that wasn't enough he decided I should get a tetnus shot, just in case. After we left there we proceeded to drive around for an hour looking for an open pharmacy (which we didn't find) to fill my prescription for antibiotics to make sure it doesn't get infected. And oh yeah, its Easter today so no luck today either. Hopefully infections take holidays.

The good news it is doesn't hurt anymore (although tetnus arm hurts like a biotch tyvm!) The bad news (for Doug) is that he has to help me change this monster on my finger tonight.

The green is nice and subtle though, right?
