Sunday we tried to load an old trailer frame into the pickup, but had to take it back out because it didn't fit. So I was holding and pulling it back out, but not far enough. It crushed my finger when we set the frame on the truck. One more inch and my hand would have been clear.
Since we drove by the hospital anyway, we checked the ER and it didn't look busy. So we decided to have them stitch it back up. And I really needed a tetanus shot, been meaning to get one for years.
So they wanted to x-ray and that took forever. It was fractured, so they also prescribed antibiotics.
Fortunately, I was wearing work gloves or not much would have been left of my finger tip. Here it is after soaking for a while (a bit gory):
They finally stitched it and 4 hours later we got out of the ER. Here it is today, 3 days later:
Friday I have an appointment with nurse Mary to see whether it's time to pull the sutures.
