I REALLY can't believe this....

  1. My hand was really sore and badly swollen from my fall yesterday,so swollen in fact that people were starting to give me that creature from outer space look. Anyway one of my favorite nurses at Harborside was really concerned and was convunced my rt ring finger or hand was fractured. Well, I got it checked out, and it turns out that none of the bones are fx, but the volar plate in the joint in the finger is all torn up. I have to see my Doc tomorrow for consult w/ a HAND SURGEON!!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS???? I can't even think about surgery now. I have no insurance right now. Hoping to land my dream job on Fri. God this sucks!!! I want winter gone ASAP!!! Sorry to be a grump. Wish me luck and healing at the doc's tomorrow. By the way, this will not stop me. I've been thru too much to stop now. Love you all, Warrior Woman.

    I had a fall when in college on a wet floor during clinical. Given tylenol and told it was fine. Well...it never did heal correctly and I now have a deformed pinkey! Be sure and have it checked out soon. Sorry about all your bad luck.

    Isn't there a theory about the person in extreme stress being more prone to accidents? Hang in there sweetie!
