Day 52

Hi Friends,

Sorry that it has taken me a few days to get back to my blog!  Here's the reason for the delay:  I am injured!  And no, it's not from running, ironically!  It's from stacking wood!

This past Saturday, in the late afternoon, I was helping my husband stack some wood for the wood pile when my right ring finger was crushed between two logs!!  My quick-thinking and medically-savvy Dr. Hubby quickly surveyed the wound and rushed me immediately to our doctor's office (thankfully he was working on Saturday) where an exam and x-rays revealed a severed tendon, broken bone and wounds that needed stitches!  Yikes!

Tomorrow, I am going for my first consultation with the hand surgeon for his assessment of what needs to be done from here on out!

Overall, I feel really well, except when I accidentally bang my splinted and heavily bandaged bum finger on something, and then it's instant nausea.  I am also a little bummed that I have not been able to run this week but will return to my regimen as soon as doctors allow.

I'll keep you posted on my recovery!
