So, it has been 100 days since my accident. Or 2400 hours. Or 144,000 minutes. Or 8,640,000 seconds. But, 100 days will do. In that time, I have taken 540 pills, spent 855 minutes massaging my hand and had 25 hospital appointments. Oh, and celebrated my 21st birthday! And after all of that, today, my hand looks like this:
But it is not yet finished! I still have to go to physio and occupational therapy, but only every other week. I will hopefully be getting a second glove next week with web spacers on too as the webbing between my ring finger and little finger is getting rather chunky. I still can’t fully straighten my ring finger at the tip which can be a pain, but more occupational therapy will hopefully sort that out. If not, there is always surgery, but let’s not talk about that yet.
All in all, it’s going pretty good. All I need to do now is get the 3 months of university work finished and I will be a very happy woman.
