Last Tuesday I was splitting wood for kindling for our wood Heater when the axe bounced of the log and came down on the tip of my thumb, almost severing it. Thing is, there was little to no pain and I was able to stem the bleeding fairly quickly, so me being me just bandaged it and figured it'd be alright. It wasn't until Friday morning when Shaunna was ready to put a fresh dressing on it and we could see the severity of the injury. The thumb nail was completely severed about halfway up and the bleeding recommenced.
There was no argument [when there usually is] when Shaunna said that we were going to the hospital. It took a while to get through all the hospital proceedures prior to seeing a plastic surgeon, but it was well worth the wait because he sheduled me for surgery right there and then. I wasn't expecting that because non-life-threatening cases are usually placed on a waiting list before being allocated a surgery spot.
Anyway, the surgery went well and now I have a pin in there to stabilise a piece of bone which had become detatched. Apart from a bit of throbbing the night after the surgery, I felt no real pain. I took an oxycodone tablet to help with that and I managed to get some sleep.
All in all I'm happy with the result and am really grateful to all the hospital staff members who looked after me, they were brilliant.
