I saw the doc this am and, because I hit the nail bed, and because I write for a living, we're doing surgery. Tomorrow am they will put a double layer graft (silicon and proteins) so blood vessels will grow. In about 1 month, they'll take a pinch of skin from the side of my hand to make me a new fatty pad. It would heal under normal conditions, but I'd be left with scar tissue over bone that would feel "like getting kicked in the shin" every time I hit a key on the keyboard. It seems like the right thing to do even though it's all happening in a whirlwind. Not sure how much I'll be blogging.
And I was going to review Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts too.
