About a week and a half ago, on my birthday, I slammed my finger in the trunk of my sisters mini van. I thought I'd show you all some pics. My sister has yet to send me the initial pics, but this will be enough to make your stomach turn! These pictures were taken on Saturday which was 2 days after the injury occurred. The swelling here, had gone down significantly, but as you can see from the comparison shot, it was still very swollen. I was lucky enough not to break it (more like shatter the knuckle!), and lucky to not need stitches. I was truly expecting to see my thumb dangling by a thread after seeing it trapped in the tiniest space ever and screaming and begging for God to let it out of the trunk!
Through all of this pain, my children have seen now, why mommy always says to keep your hands and fingers (and feet/toes) away from the car doors!
I appreciate your patience during my recovery time. I'm re-opening my shop today and hope you'll come by for a visit! Have a great day!
