my typing will be WAY worse then it was before, sorry about that. before i was able to use my right hand to hit a key here and there, but that is not the case for awhile.
like i said, surgery went well. it took him an hour longer then he had thought. apparently, correct me if im wrong, (i was pretty doped up when dr talked to me) the cartilage grew a bit of bone. that's what got stuck, but he removed it. no more stuck finger EVER! he did give me a few more stitches then he had planned and had to go deeper, as well. he did not have to cut on the top of my hand like he was afraid of. i have 7 stitches on my palm, plus a few internally. the stitches aren't coming out until the 9th and i can't change the dressing for a week. so, im guessing recovery is going to be awhile. hopefully the pain will subside and i'll be able to do SOMETHING.
im being a very good patient and staying on the couch. which is a lot easier since my laptop came today *YAY* im asking for things i need and taking my pain meds when i need them. i was given VERY strict orders to not "act tough". the only problem is, the vicodin makes me VERY tired and dizzy. tomorrow we're gonna try more food before i take them and see what happens.
thanks again for thinking good thoughts and sending them my way. i appreciate them so much!
