Blue Red

Oooops!!

Had a stupid accident yesterday afternoon.

I met my friend for dinner and as we were about to leave I went to the ladies and the toilet door wouldn't lock. Someone pushed the door and I automatically put my hand up to stop them from coming in. So it sort of pushed all the joints into each other!

ouch!

I managed to get some ice for it immediately and sat with ice on it for the rest of the afternoon and into the evening. The pain wasn't easing and at about 7pm it started to swell up. When I woke up this morning it was blue (not too bad though)  so I decided to go to the hospital.
So I spent this morning at the A&E dept having my finger X-Rayed!

It's my left ring finger that is giving me problems, my middle finger that also hurt yesterday stopped hurting overnight. I can move it a bit, but it definitely won't straighten or bend far. They've said that it doesn't look broken but I've got to go back and have it X-Rayed again on Sunday morning for them to have a second look and to check if I've damaged the ligaments.

It's silly how such a small accident could cause such pain!
