I'm only using nine fingers to type today. That's because, a couple of nights ago as I was working in under the kitchen sink trying to stop a leak, I slit the tip of my index finger on my right hand. I had taken the plumbing apart and was wiping everything clean. As I was wiping the drain hole in the sink I felt an immediate and sharp pain and then, of course, there was lots of blood. It's amazing what we take for granted. It has been difficult to take notes in class, to write emails (or blogs), to change Nate's diapers (getting out of that may be the only upside), and to do anything else that I use my hands for. It's really not that bad, just a annoyance. It was touch and go in the beginning but I think I'm gonna make it. So my "finger" tip for you is: take care when cleaning sharp metal objects or you might lose your finger tip! Have a safe day!
