Far Guys finger is healing just fine..it looks much better than it did. The surgeon made a zig zag cut down the entire finger.
Warning: Photo of stitches in a finger…just prior to stitch removal.
It looks good here..it looked much worse..but I won’t share those photos with you. The dots were made by the Surgeon..must have been the road map.
We have been going to therapy..I say “we” because Far Guy is not driving unless he has to.
I think there are still a few stitches in his finger..he is really diligent about doing his passive exercises. In a few more days he can begin to move it within the confines of his splint. We used a product called Glysolid Skin Balm on his fingers to keep the skin soft and pliable. He must still wear his club for awhile yet…till the end of the month. Tendons take a long time to heal.
Chance is still enjoying a few of the snow banks..the snow is melting fast..the daytime temperatures have been near 50 degrees the past few days.
I took these photos at sunset on April 06, 2011.
Remember the rules..when the fluorescent green Smokey Bear ruler is free of snow when it is next to the snow stick a winner will be declared! Connie Peterson 200 miles straight south of me here in Minnesota and Liz in PA guessed today…I will take a photo before nightfall…we will see how much more of the snow melts away today.
I have an eye checkup today and Chance goes to the Vet for his annual shots. Spring cleaning is coming along, I finished the furnace/laundry room and began on the kitchen..I would have gotten further on the kitchen but I needed a nap:)
