Yes, I know I’ve been very lazy recently, but I have good reason to do so! Last week I was on vacation - the highlight: Cirque du Soleil! That was an amazing show. The acts they perform is beyond description, but it makes me want to run away to the circus.
I fell while holding a glass, which then shattered. I cut off a sizable chunk of my index finger, so I headed to the ER to get it taken care of. Apparently, their idea of taking care of finger that won’t stop bleeding is to burn it shut! Because 10+ minutes of pressure didn’t stop the bleeding, they decided to use nitrate sticks to burn the wound shut. I know now that was not the smartest thing to do as it probably killed more tissue than the glass did. And you can see from the pics, it didn’t leave a pleasant result.So my pop sent me some horse medicine and I’ve been tending to that the past week. It’s beginning to look somewhat better, but I’ve decided to see a specialist to confirm that and make sure I don’t lose a finger.
