Need a Hand?

Well I do.

While out for an evening poop walk, Saffie's leash slipped between my third and fourth fingers as she darted for a jogger.

It really looked worse than this. Regrettably we didn't take the time to work out some more dramatic camera angles before heading to urgent care......

Needless to say, hilarity ensued. Even the zany crew at Group Health got in on the fun!

A couple of X-rays. Click to enlarge!

Fingers #4 and #5 are broken. #4 is the worst. The part of the finger above the break was dislodged and had to be pulled back into alignment. Yee Ha!

Luckily, despite the fracture, #5 stayed where it belongs.

It looks and sounds awful but thankfully it wasn't really all that painful.

Becoming a "lefty", however, has been an exciting challenge.
