    Default Ouch

    I spent 4 hours at the hospital today , they pulled a 1/2" long bit of steel wire out of my little finger . The pain I cannot describe .

    Cleaning some carpet, sounds simple enough , I put my hand down on the carpet and swept my hand across . Ouch, something impaled my finger badly .

    I could see no sign of anything except a tiny hole in my finger . But I knew something was stuck deep inside my finger. .

    The Doctors got the ultrasound out but the picture wasn't that clear. They prodded and cut open the finger. Hmmm nothing can be found . The chief doctor after much talking and trying the gentle way, decided to go for broke, he really got the scalpal going , at this stage I was yelling and my legs were kicking . They finally found it ... they were so surprised at how long the bit of wire was.

    I need a rest .
