For those who are wondering, the finger continues to heal very nicely. The doctor says it may be six more months before the swelling completely goes away (it’s probably 20% larger than it should be). I was able to decline physical therapy as I have seen significant progress. Unfortunately, outside of my doctor appointment and making dinner, I’ve been working non-stop since 6:30 this morning, and that means a LOT of typing. I’m beat, and the finger is telling me that enough is enough.
