Back in the Swing of Things

June 24th, 2013

I’m back-   This time for ‘real’ .    After my little kitchen accident and not having use of my left (dominant) hand for a little while- I’m back in action.    Now that it doesn’t hurt to type- I can fill y’all in on ‘some’ of the things that have been going on.

As you may know- I burned my hand in a little kitchen accident.. It was ‘bad’ when it happened- to the point of having to go to the ER (as per the ER, not by my own doing- because I wasn’t going).   At the time they wrapped it- and instructed me to come back the following day to meet with the surgeon specializing in burns.      The intention was to open the blisters caused by the burns and then medicate and wrap them for healing.    The only thing is-  when I arrived and they unwrapped the bandages they couldn’t believe that there were no blisters.   Ok-  there WERE blisters but they didn’t have fluid in them and the nurse AND the doctor were both surprised and both asked separately when the burn happened because it was healing SO fast.     They were amazed that it had happened less than 24 hours prior to my visit to them.     My body was doing a great job of healing on its own and so I went from mummy bandages to bandages on each finger (the palm and pinky didn’t blister- thankfully) and some medication and instructions to change my bandages daily and take pain medication as instructed.

They still told me it would be 2-3 weeks before I had full use of my hand again and I was prepared to live with that.     As it turns out- my body had other ideas and by 6 days I had some use of my hand and by day 11 I had full use of my hand!   It is amazing what the body can do, and I’m definitely sure that it’s answered prayers .. (thanks to everyone who sent up a prayer for me).  Even today it’s a little sensitive but it has healed really well and I’m bandage free and no scarring.  YAY!

Now that you are all caught up on that ‘not-so-fun’ adventure.  I have more to share..  Follow me to another blog entry.
