Today is the last day my hand will look like this:
Tomorrow, the wrapping comes off, and the stitches come out!  yeeeeeehawwwww!!!

Two weeks ago, when I got this surgery, this wrap served a good purposes- The compression  helped with swelling, and it kept things from bending around too much.

But now, I am ready for this effer to come off.  I'm ready to bathe and shower without wrapping my hand in plastic bags!  I'm ready to really wash my hands- and I mean really! I'm ready to start playing my guitar again!  And making jewelry!  And...And....  The list goes on and on.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate my thumb.  I never take the time to say, "Thank you!" to my thumb.  I take it for granted.  But once my trigger finger got so bad that it stopped bending, I realized how awesome it really is when it works right, and without pain. 

So thank you, my dear thumb.  And all the other fingers that surround you.  High fives for all my fingers on both hands!
