I was late for work this afternoon. I hadn't planned to be late. In fact, I had plenty of time to get to work. But, I had to visit the doctor first, because my finger was bleeding and bleeding and bleeding and it didn't show any signs of stopping.
I had put a massive plaster on the wound and then taped all around it, but after only a short while, the blood started coming through anyway. So, I decided to call work and tell them I wouldn't make it. I got dressed with great difficulty and then wrapped a towel around my finger/hand and drove to the doctor's.
He cut my band-aid off, cleaned the wound, told me it looked good and put another plaster on. I was good to go! I got two more plasters just in case and I went to work.
So, now you are wondering how I did hurt my finger? Well... ehm... my finger got in the way when I was shaving in the shower. Right through the nail it went and into the flesh underneath. I will be giving people the finger for a few weeks yet!
