First, I want to thank you for your encouraging words for the healing of my injured finger. I am happy to say that the swelling is much-improved, and I find I am able to use it for limited typing once again! On Wednesday, I will have the stitches removed. Until that time, I continue to follow the doctor's instructions of removing the bandage while I am at home, but reapplying the bandage when I leave the house.
It is the last part of that last sentence that contributed to my missing some photo ops this past week-end:-( The inability to rely on this left forefinger when holding the camera interfered with picture-taking when I was at Emory and Henry for Homecoming.
It was a beautiful week-end, with only a few half-hearted showers on Saturday morning. Having an opportunity to greet friends from those earlier days as students was such a joy!
Another instruction from the doctor is that the injured finger should be kept dry. Following this instruction has made cooking a bit of a challenge, so it may be awhile before there is a recipe post. I will just have to see how things progress.
Until I assume a more normal routine (for me, anyway), I will be spending time enjoying these publications.
