Finger (again).

Hope I’m not boring you with an update on my finger. There are a couple of photos of it this time so if you’re eating don’t click on them to see the larger version until you’ve finished. They’re not particularly gory though.

As I said before the bit that was sewn back on had gone black like frostbite, it was probably my fault for having put it directly on ice instead of just keeping it cool on the way down to Kas. Anyway, as it has been healing it has been re-attaching itself and most of it has come to life again. Just the outer skin remained dead. Around the edges it has been curling up and I’ve been trimming it off and putting antiseptic ointment on it. Well now I just have a scab with a tiny piece of the original skin left and it’s obvious that I am losing only a very small part of the tip of the finger. I’m very pleased and relieved although I’ll be glad when the pain stops, I had to take some painkillers to be able to sleep last night.

So here are the pictures, looking at them now you would probably wonder why I made all the fuss! As you can see the nail is now at an angle, don’t know whether it will straighten up or not and I’m wondering whether I will grow a new fingerprint or will it stay smooth? Any ideas anyone?
