i was washing my hands for like the 6th time making dinner and my fingernail popped right off. it looks really funny underneath, like there's still a nail there in shape, but it's really just bare skin. there's this tiny little sliver of nail growing but not much!

hooray!

the fingernail stripe is (was?? i dunno if any of it's left) NOT malignant!!! *grin*

had my post-op checkup at 8:15am this morning. doc was late tho so i got out at 9:20am. anyways, he was really nice and i didn't even hafta pay. the last segment of my little finger is wrapped in a band-aid and some more stick-to-itself tape but i'm allowed to get it wet. FINALLY! i'm gonna keep it wrapped up like that awhile. according to the doc, the new nail might come in in 2 weeks or 2 months and it prolly won't look normal till about 4 months.....not that i really care what it looks like.

yay!

i'm kinda liking this bandaged finger! sorry, i can't wash the sinks; i can't get my bandage wet. sorry, i can't wash the dishes. sorry, i can't get my hands sticky rolling out the homemade pizza dough. sorry, i can't clean up dog puke on the carpet.....i can't get my bandage wet! *wink* i still contribute of course but i do get out of a couple things i don't like.

also we got made moderator on april fools!

darn it

math homework WAS due today. srsly i CAN'T write tho. the first couple words look messy & scrawled, then it just degrades into scribbles. tomorrow night i can take off the bandage but i'll just hafta wrap it up again. maybe a smaller wrapping will let me write cuz, yunno, i kinda need to handwrite.

*sigh*

i got some sticks-to-itself medical tape and got body-mom to wrap another layer around the old bandage cuz i was sick of seeing it half bloodstained. yea. so it's a tiny bit bigger now but at least it doesn't look so gross. i'm trying to come up with a brief answer for if people ask about it. 'i had minor finger surgery' is i think gonna be what i'll say. then last night i accidentally cut my left middle fingertip with a bread knife and that hurts a little when i type.

i can't remember if i've got math homework that i should be doing. it doesn't matter so much at this point cuz i can't write with my hand (if only lefthanded ^webber could be out for that! he'd be PERFECT! boy do i wish we could just force insiders to the front!) and math homework needs a ton of handwriting.

ow

so i had my surgery yesterday. it went well. it took a long time cuz the painkiller shots didn't work as fast or as well for me, so they had to wait. then afterward me & body-dad had cheeseburgers and fries. (woot! after not eating/drinking from 9am i was SO hungry!)

they gave me acetaminophen w/ codeine script, but my fingers were numb till i went to bed @ midnight. the pain only started this morning and 1 pill of plain ibuprofen did just fine. the bandage is slowly becoming dark with blood tho which can't be a good sign!

um....i don't think i can write and typing is uncomfortable. mostly what i wanna do is sit under a blanket and rest my hurting hand on my other shoulder while i read. i WILL study for my midterm today, but prolly not do any other homework. *sigh*

time to rest my hand again. *waves to friends*

this week is spring break. i thought i'd be more excited, but i'm kinda bored. the surgery is gonna be on friday and i want it to come soon but i don't wanna waste spring break hoping for something that'll happen at the end. ehh, i dunno. i guess we've got extra time to read or write or whatever.

side note — i updated my all about us canvas to include the newbies. *smile*

woot!!

gotta wait for the scheduler to call to tell me my surgery date/time. apparently this is gonna be monday, not wednesday or thursday like the doctor said. grr. anyways the schedulers are 'frantically working' to fit everybody in, which i'm SURE means it's gonna be FOREVER before i get my turn. i KNOW i'm impatient, but i HATE waiting this long for ANYTHING.

tomorrow is the consultation appt with the hand surgeon. i'm gonna take the bus down there early, which means i'll have time for a bacon CHEESEBURGER and fries. *grin* they better not run out before i get there!

i keep forgetting this whole thing is to test if i have melanoma. it's like i see it as working toward the procedure the doc's gonna do (SOMEDAY darnit!) and the rest is just....i dunno....insignificant. i guess maybe it's better that way, not worrying when the dermatologist said it's unlikely it's cancer.

i'll have a better idea of what's ultimately gonna happen tomorrow afternoon.

ugh

turns out the appt with the surgeon is just gonna be a CONSULTATION. wth?! we're pissed. that's like FOREVER to wait for some guy to 'look it over' and 'discuss the options'! srsly there ARE NO options. it's just ONE little procedure. grah!

in other news, we're considering starting a group journal on DW. i dunno if we will but it'd be kinda nice to have a central space PLUS our separate journals. ^merrick's mainly the one for it cuz she has a journal on LJ and doesn't wanna keep a new journal on DW alone (she's actually GOT one at [personal profile] with , just doesn't wanna use it).

anyways, life's not bad. i should be letting ^kv do programming logic homework now, but we'll make time for that tomorrow. ha.

we got an appt with a hand surgeon on 22 feb to get our pinkie fingernail lifted up to get a sample of the beginning of the pigmentation stripe cuz the lunula isn't visible enough to get it any other way. the surgery is gonna be minor but it's kinda yucky to describe so i won't go into any more detail right here. they'll get a biopsy of the sample taken to test for melanoma. the dermatologist says it's highly unlikely it'll be cancer but it's better safe than sorry.
