This little finger is going to the surgeon 😦
I thought it was odd that the day after the injury I couldn’t feel the tip of my finger. The Man and I gave it until late on Sunday to remove the dressing because it felt like I had pulled a stitch and I had bled through the dressing overnight. It was then that I realized I actually couldn’t feel the side of my finger from the middle knuckle to the tip.
I was able to get in with the hand specialist on Monday – he squeezed me in thankfully. Short story? I’ll be going in for surgery on the 10th. It turns out, in my infinite talent and grace, that I managed to either mangle or sever a nerve, and possible damaged the tendon. It explains why I don’t have much pain, but is the oddest sensation in the world.
Keep my poor little finger in your thoughts and prayers!

Best of luck.
Thank you! I think I’ll need it!
Oh! I am so sorry! I do hope the feeling returns over time. I’ve had surgery on my pelvis so many times, that I’ve lost feeling in spots. AND you are very correct in how odd it feels to have someone touch my low back & i only feel it on either side of my scar. But yours is much more important to heal, that is a much needed finger. I’ll be praying for you. ~amy
Thank you for the prayers and sorry for your own numb spots… I’m hoping for the best!
I will bring you food to cheer you up! Be safe, hope all goes well.
