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!
