Well, I had every intention of posting another poem earlier today, but I ended up shutting my thumb in my van door- requiring a visit to the nearest emergency room. I now have a splint on my thumb and I learned two things:
1. The doctor doesn't think its broken, but he also stated that many, many small fractures never show up on an xray until 5-10 days after the injury occurred. So, I am to follow up with my family doctor in a couple of days to confirm for sure that it is not broken. He asked me if it hurt, my repy was, "Well, I nearly pissed my pants because it hurt so freakin bad after I realized my thumb was still stuck in the door and then it hurt worse after I opened the door to retrieve my thumb out of it. Not even childbirth hurt this bad!"
2. I have a genetic anomaly. Apparently, the xray revealed that I have an extra bone in my thumb that is not supposed to be there. I was informed that some people do have extra bones, but having one in the thumb is a rarity. Soooo...I guess that means I'm special???? I thought it was a pretty neat quality anyway.
3. (Yeah, I know I said two) but I gotta say- typing is a slight challenge with a splint on your thumb! Hopefully, I'll still be able to manage my daily posts. Right now though, it kinda hurts to type so this small post will have to do for now, I do hope you all don't mind waiting a day or few days before I manage to post a few more poems and finish the short story I mentioned that I was working on.
Hope everyone is having a great day/night!
