Twelve long days after I cut my finger in a kitchen mishap I got my stitches out. I celebrated by spending most of the afternoon just bending my finger and typing on the computer without holding my injured pointer finger skyward.
I have no nerve damage, full motion and the cut healed without infection or anything else gross. I am going to have an excellent scar.
Even though I can now type, knit and spin with all of my fingers, it's good to know that I could work around the injury and still do all of the things I do to make my living.
