…somebody will be with you shortly.
Today’s hold music is Mark Knopfler’s final solo from Telegraph Road.
The hand hurts this morning, but hey, what you gonna do, right?
I have to clean the sutures and change the dressing, so at the moment I’ve got the splint off and most of the bandaging – which means I can actually type a line or two in something under ten minutes.
I’ve got feeling and good color in the damaged finger, so despite nicking the artery I haven’t notably damaged my circulation. So, you know, that’s good.
The doc told me I couldn’t get the wound wet at for ten days, i.e. no shower for a week and a half.
Yeah, sure, doc.
This isn’t the first time I’ve been seriously injured, I know what to do. (and yes, I am the kind of guy who rips chunks of the cast off with a pair of pliers). I bought a couple boxes of extra large waterproof blue nitrile gloves last night (two by two, hands of blue – and if you don’t get that, well, I feel sorry for you), without the splint they fit just fine over the bandages.
I’m off to take a shower.
Once I re-dress and splint the injured digit, posting and such will return to twitter sized one-liners.
Enjoy your day – and again thanks for all the kind thoughts.
