'Hey everybody just wanted to show you my new trophy!!! Surgery went well. It took about an hour and twenty minutes. They completely put me under. The first thing I said when I woke up was, "I dreamed about web sites". :) I'm in a little pain now but I have a very good care-taker at home with me.
By the way, notice the very sophisticated "exercise device" they attached to the cast. It's a rubber band tied to my fingernail with sutures. Nice, huh? The doc who did the surgery is great...I was glad we had him.
Love you all,
Here's the picture I took with my crummy camera phone to send to Pam's phone when she was waking up in the hospital.
For those of you who don't know, she had a freak (very freak) accident earlier this week. She had opened a can of chicken to make chicken salad and when she was cleaning up, she picked up the can to throw it away and the lid was so sharp it immediately sliced through the inside of her little finger. She said it barely bled, but hurt like crazy and when she went to try to bend it she could not. She went to the ER and they gave her 3 stitches, but after two days she still could not move it. She went to a specialist yesterday where it was determined that she had severed both tendons in her finger and they had recessed back towards her hand. The Doctor immediately scheduled surgery for today during his regular lunch hour. She has to stay bandaged for several weeks, and then has to undergo months of therapy. I told you it was freak!! Anyway, she is doing well, and hopes she will be able to get back to her job as web designer soon. Thanks again for all of your prayers!!!
