The splint if finally comming off this afternoon! The finger has been fairy sore over the past few days. The only reason I can think of is that I have been less protective of it and therefore have strained it more than since the surgery. But this makes me curious as to what things do look like under the bandages.

The surgery itself was really minor, so it makes me wonder why it still aches that much even after two weeks. Guess I will know soon enough. I think I will still need to wear as bandage for another 1-2 weeks but at least I will have more flexibility in the finger and I should be able to type at least a little better.

Actually the whole surgery, although trivial, did make me appreciate some the things we take for granted. It is so hard to do simple things such as lift heavier objects or even open a jar when you can only grip objects with a single hand. Well at least I'll be able to now type without nudging four keys at the same time :)
