It looks like I'm headed for surgery. The doc said I did dislocate this damn finger and it did go back into place. That's good! BUT the tendon that runs over the knuckle is not there. He can't be sure but he thinks it's laying on the OUTSIDE of my bone. OUCH! He was pushing up on it and he felt a lot of tension. He didn't want to push too hard because he didn't want to cause me any undue pain or snap the tendon. I told him he could, but either he had to get me a bucket to throw up in or a pillow so I don't hit my head on the floor when I pass out :D Weird he didn't push up on my finger when I hissed.
He put the splint back on and made me an appointment to see a hand surgeon. That appointment is tomorrow *sigh* I'm not as scared as I was yesterday, but still pretty uneasy about the whole thing.
I talked to my math instructor about the possibility of surgery and he didn't seem concerned about me not being able to do my homework. I'm doing the best to not let this whole thing get me down, but to be honest it isn't easy. I'm frustrated that I can't do ANYTHING. I can't cook dinner, can't wash my hair, unbutton my jeans, clean the house, pretty much anything that requires the use of both hands, I am unable to do. I can't even go running because the movement will jostle my hand and it hurts!
I did put a call out for help yesterday and asked a friend to make dinner for us because we're all VERY sick of pizza. That sucked having to ask for her help, but also made me feel good that I had an amazing friend to help me out. Thank you Tracy!
My lil sis, dad and their gang are all here this week. It's nice to be able to hang out with them and have some help around here, but also sucks because I can't do anything I had planned. I was going to make lasagna and pumpkin cheesecake for them, now I can't. Dirty is helping, obviously, but ummmmm...how can I say this politely....DUDE CAN'T COOK TO SAVE HIS OWN LIFE! Hence the reason we've had pizza or breakfast for dinner since Thursday. But not tonight! Tonight we're eating the dinner Tracy made us! Tomorrow, lil sis is going to help me with the stew. Not sure about the rest of the week, but right now, we've got dinner covered tonight. So very thankful that we will NOT be eating pizza tonight!
Nae is still really sick! Her strep test came back negative, and she isn't feeling much better. She's been on antibiotics since Monday afternoon, so we thought she'd be feeling better. Not quite sure what's going on. Does anyone know anything about tonsillitis? She hasn't had a fever but her throat is really sore and she can't talk. I'm having a hell of a time getting a hold of her Doctor. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!
