That is great news! I injured a finger badly in a folding lawn chair when I was a teen. It took a long time for my nail to grow back, but it did. The important thing is that you have less pain now. Happy knitting! I'm so happy for you!
yay! so nice to see you knitting! and so glad your finger is mending :-D
I'm glad your finger and you are both feeling better!

Pain Free Days at last!
In spite of the awful look of that finger, beneath it's concealing Band-aid, real healing is going on. I took it to the surgeon on Tuesday with enough trepidation keeping me stiff, fully expecting him to say “I'm sorry, you will never grow another nail. You let it go too long before seeking proper medical attention.” Pain can make it easy to imagine more bad news hurtling at you fast.
Instead, he was really upbeat about it - and the moment he put the hard splint on my finger it stopped hurting. And it hasn't hurt again. It's the sort of thing I can take off at will, I can wash my fingers, flex them and keep them supple, then pop it back on. I can also
Pardon the fuzziness. I had to take that picture myself. It's clumsy, but it is knitting and that feels like ... well, not quite getting out of jail free – i can't spin yet, but certainly being on parole.
Yesterday was the first day in weeks that I didn't have to drag myself through to the end ... or quit halfway and just go home. It's the most wonderful thing to see that it's 5 o'clock and realize you haven't been aching for the past 3 hours.
