As you may or may not know, I did some fairly serious damage to a finger over the weekend. No, I didn't almost cut it off, but the effect is roughly the same. Crushed it beyond recognition.
I thought it would be better by now, but alas, it is not. I went back to the Dr. this morning, and was told that, in no uncertain terms, I have to stop using the hand altogether for at least the next 3 - 5 days. No typing with it, etc. That, or he will pull the fingernail out, which made him sound more like Dick Cheney than my doctor, frankly. He's not as scary looking as Cheney, but his threat seems credible.
So, I'm breaking his rules and typing this message, but I will be doing my dead-level best to not type any more than is absolutely necessary, since I believe his threat, and am really not up for Gitmo-style medicine.
Don't look for many blog posts, etc. until this finger thing is resolved.
