Here I am in the ER once again but this time not with Daddio.
At 8am Saturday morning on the way to work at the ice rink, my right hand didn't play nice with the car door. My poor thumb caught the worst of it. I'll spare you the gory details but by 4 that afternoon the pain and swelling was so intense, I left my friend's birthday party and drove myself straight to the hospital.
I pretty much knew what was coming. To relieve the swelling I had to have holes drilled into my thumbnail and then have the congealed blood expressed. Ohhhh....it was a long night. Mercifully, there was no fracture so I will only be out of commission for a few days in this contraption but a few days is too many for my Advent KAL. Even so, I doubt I'll be able to handle the fine needles and yarn for a while. Sigh... Oh well, it could have been worse. I just wish I'd gotten those Christmas cards written sooner.
