Let me start off with praise the Lord everything went faster with this doctor visit and I got a good report! The doctor removed the splint and said to start physical therapy. My little finger is still discolored, fat, and stiff (it's really quite ugly)! Any attempt to bend it is quite painful! The doctor said that this is normal. So, tomorrow I start physical therapy on it and hopefully it will get back to normal quickly! At least I no longer have to bag my hand for showers! Woohoo!
