My doctor said I should come back after the six-weeks so he could take a look at my left thumb - the one that was broken during the Ondoy typhoon rescue mission. The six-week period was over last week and still I did not go see my doctor. Two days ago I decided to take out the splint since the healing period was at its 7th week. I thought that my thumb should be well by then. I took off the splint. My thumb was stiff and with very minimal movement. That was expected, right? Anyway, D1 was on duty the time I took off my splint. Last night D1 came home from duty and notice that my thumb was out of its splint, was swollen, and (truth be told) was still quite tender.

"Mom! You played doctor again! You should have not taken off the splint until the doctor said so!"

So, later today I will go to the hand surgeon. D1 said the thumb did not heal well. Worst case scenario was for the surgeon to fix the nerves and whatever stuff that props and connects my thumb.

With my current state of "sadness" and my impending doctor consult, wouldn't it be nice to just grab my luggage sets and fly-off to wherever it is that I could find solace?

  1. I hope you went to the doctor for that thumb. Mahirap na. Buti na lang may 'totoong' doctor dyan...dito sa amin doktor-doktoran lang [pangalan nya nagsisimula sa M]...hehe. But he only does that pag sya maysakit...pag ako o yung bata ang bilis magpa appointment sa dorktor.

    Sana ayos lang ang weekend mo...and you're slowly but surely getting out of that 'sadness' phase you're in right now.


  2. @ huling: thumb is okay but will need rehab therapy. sadness phase still on but i think i am managing it. :)
