It’ll Be Slow Blogging for a While

I believe I've got  a possible dislocated right middle finger (great) From shoveling the snow which has buried us but good. Its crooked at the first joint and I can't bend it back. Called Aunt  (isn't nice to have a doctor in the family?) who told me to splint it ( found an old elementary school ruler of son's and wrapped it up with leftover lacrosse stick tape- yeah its not elegant but…) and wait a day or two before seeing a doctor, hence typing is shall we say… awkward at best

Wife missed work yesterday, but took her to work this morning. The interstates are maybe 75%, but the even the main roads are still a crap shoot.  Told son he'll be lucky if he see's the inside of his school  this week.

 

 

 

Update:  Had the finger looked at and the diagnosis is that I probably have a partially detached tendon and the joint just below the finger nail.   Need to get an X-Ray and then consult with a hand surgeon as to next steps

    So it's hunt-n-peck typing till the contraption comes off?

    Basically, yes. It sucks.

    Whenever I think of or see someone hunt-n-peck, I'm reminded of Chuck from my high school paper. He could two-finger type almost as fast as those using all 10 digits!
