VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED!!! Some of these photos are a bit gory.
Well, some of you may have heard that while I was creating these beauties -
I cut off a part of my left thumb. Needless to say, it was by far the worst injury I have ever had, and I sure hope nothing like that ever happens to me, or any of you, ever again!
Now for the photos: "Chronicles of my Thumb." I'm warning you - they're gross!
It doesn't really look that bad in this picture because it's a little blurry, but it's a pretty good chuck and some of my nail is gone too.
Note: If you look at the rest of my thumb, you can see that it is stained red from all the blood that I lost. The rest of my hand looked like this too.
The skin grows back from the outside in. That's why there is a little hole in the middle where skin hasn't yet grown back.
Kaylan and TJ were great doctors helping me clean it for the first few days. I couldn't have done it without them.
The black ring around my wound is just dried blood that had seeped into my good skin when I first cut it.
On another note, I slept on the couch for two whole weeks because that's the only way I could ensure not bumping it on anything.
This happened on Wednesday, June 15th. I was off work for exactly two weeks. Thankfully I was able to go back to work then since it is on the inside of my thumb. I definitely have to appreciate that my hands are what keep me working, and I will be taking the appropriate steps to make sure I don't lose a finger making any more crafts!
This was around the first time I was able to play with Miles again. It was an awful three weeks not being able to snuggle that little guy!
Sorry for the picture and info overload. This was a pretty big event in my life that just took up half my summer. I felt the need to document it properly. :)
I hope you all have a great weekend!
