I shoulda taken a picture before and after the ER.

If I showed you what my thumb looks like now, you'd wonder what the fuss was all about, thought the hole they burned in the top of the nail looks pretty ooky still.

That's nothing compared to watching some little asian girl ramming a needle into a knuckle bone till it starts to bend , then slides off the bone, and pops out the other side of my hand. That still makes me queasy.

The whole she drilled after the shot did let all the blood ooze out last night, but my thumb is still numb and stiff. I hope she didn't damage a nerve on her fishing expedition in my hand.
