~*~ For My Next Trick ~*~

Don't ask me how I did it? but on Wednesday morning I slammed my left hand in the car door. Much hopping on the spot and cursing under the breath followed.For the rest of Wednesday I watched my thumb turn every colour of the rainbow, swell up and throb continuously.

Friday morning found me in A&E having my thumb "trephined", this involved a hot wire!!, X-rayed, dressed, and a course of antibiotics. My liver seems to have survived the paracetamol onslaught and my left hand is in use again.

You will be delighted to know that I didnt take any photos of the grizzly incident but I LOVE Playmobil.

Oh your poor hand! I once slammed a car boot down on my hand, but luckily it was just badly bruised. All that treatment you had sounds very traumatic. I hope it doesn't hurt too much:)

oh you poor thing. Can you still sew and knit though? I broke my wrist rollerblading once and I was so bored for 6 weeks with the cast on. Hope you feel better soon and next time remember to remove your hand from the door.
