Here are photos of the stitches the day I had them removed
It looks like it is healing nicely. But, much to my dismay, the morning after I had the stitches removed, my finger split open again! yeah, I know, it is me, so it figures! Why would I be surprised anyway? Well, I did NOT go get more stitches (mostly because when they numbed it, it hurt like heck) I have opted instead to put butterfly strips on it and wrap it very carefully. I don't have any recent photos and I don't want to take off the bandage to take a picture. But It looks a lot like the pictures I took right after the stitches were out. Except now, the top of the finger is bruised as all can be because I keep knocking it on things and my boys seem to think it has a giant target on it. I have never hit my finger so many times in my life. It hurts so bad all the time. Maybe if I was more careful with it though, it could heal faster. Then again, if I was more careful this wouldn't have happened in the first place. So I guess I will have to live with this flipping finger until it fully heals (however long that may be is yet to be determined).
