    Once it's grown back a little and isn't painful anymore your handwriting and harp playing will go back to normal.
    I pressed a doorbell with my right little finger a year ago and for whatever reason it pulled off/split the extensor tendon that has never grown back or healed. Even though the end of my little finger is now "floppy" I can at least write again.

    While it sounds a little hinky, it may be the best option. The bone fragments left inside are slowly dissolving, and I’ve no signs of osteomyelitis. Opening it up puts me at risk again for a bone infection, another wound site for a graft, and further exposure to the sub par medical system that is Texas. It’s only been three weeks and it seems to be doing ok.

    That said, my dining room looks like Santa’s Little Wound Care Workshop and my son has turned me into his Biology project. He’s photographing the daily sessions of care/rehab and is terribly pleased at the “Yuck” factor of the photos. Silver linings and all that.

    Sending well-wishes! As a wind player, I always figure I can best lose my left pinky or right thumb . . . but not recommended for anyone.

    Oh my. Just found this thread. I am so sorry. Five decades of Our Lady's Psalter for you tonight! Hang in there, and offer it up. After all, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. (Except for bears. Bears will kill you.)

    Many thanks for the cards and well wishes. Yesterday makes it two months’ dealing with this and the Dr. says three more months to go. I hope to be at least scribbling short missives before that. Onward!
