I had an unfortunate kitchen accident this past Friday the 13th. Now, I’ve never had an unpleasant association with the date and am generally not a superstitious person. But this was not a good day for me.

The short, not gross version is I hurt myself on Friday and ended up having emergency hand surgery over night into Saturday morning. My surgeon was absolutely fantastic. She showed me how she could tell what was wrong just by how my fingers fell as she rolled my hand.

I mostly slept while in the hospital but eventually I took a couple snap shots on my phone of my post op fun.

A few days after I was discharged, I went in to the hand therapy office to get my splint. The post surgical bandages and split was apparently temporary. I kind of liked it though! It was very sturdy. It had to so though. It certainly wouldn’t last very long!

Getting the surgical dressings removed sucked but it was neat watching them make my splint. I told them it made me feel like a storm trooper. They didn’t get the reference. Ack!

I was not thrilled about the whole thing really so I posted a silly picture of myself expressing my feelings on the subject…

I am very upset that I was unable to work as much as I would like. I purchased some adaptive equipment and I’m optimistic that I’ll be able to get back to it within the next few weeks.

Please forgive me if it takes a bit longer for me to get back to people. I am of course typing one handed and I have a lot of medical appointments.

Thank you for all the support and well wishes during this difficult time. I really do appreciate it.
