so i got the stitches removed today. that's the good news. the bad news is that nerves were injured. that's why i can't feel anything on one side of my E and A fingers. also, it's likely that i tore the tendon in my pinky. i can't move the top joint, well, not by much anyways, like maybe 1mm. and it hurts when i try.
i have to go see a hand specialist soon. i went to a different hospital this time. apparently, i was supposed to get x-rays when i went in for the stitches. they didn't do that. so now it might be too late to do anything. i didn't think hospitals would be cheap or lazy like that.
so now my fingers are in a splint because if i keep using it, the tendon can tear completely and retract down my hand.
anyways, thanks for all the good words! makes me feel warm inside
