Writer’s Hands

Here is a photo of this writer’s hands. 


Because of my determination to write and post every day, I am typing this post with the three of my four working fingers on my right hand.  This morning I had surgery to correct a bony mallet finger, one of my laundry list of injuries incurred in my November accident.  The right pinkie was injured as well, hence the splint.  The school bus struck me on the left side and actually broke the left pinkie, along with many more bones on that side of my body.

I was once told that the size of a woman is determined by the size of the obstacle it takes to stop her.  So far, I’m bigger than a bus! (I still have a sense of humor.  The nerve block is still in full effect.)

  1. Hello there,
    I’m so sorry this accident happened to your hands. I have both kinds of arthritis and fibromyalgia and I empathize with you re: pain that will happen when the drugs wear off. Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery and bless you.

    1. After a separated shoulder, 9 broken ribs (each in multiple places), 3 breaks in my pelvis, broken hip and knee, lacerated knee, broken C7 vertebrae, various and sundry cuts and bruises, and a partridge in a pear tree… this should be a cake walk. Thanks for the well wishes! …and all your help on the forum. I don’t say much, but I read everything.
