Finger update update

Saw the Orthopedic Surgeon this morning.
He was a bit rash, and rude, but after X-Rays it has been determined that my tendon was simply too strong for my bones and when the ball hit my finger the tendon pulled the bone away from the joint. Picture your knee cap and a string pulling it away from your knee. And that's what happened. So now I have to wear a splint for 6-8 weeks in hopes of it healing on its own. I can't take the splint off at all, even to shower. If it heals incorrectly....surgery.

Bugger.

Something tells me I wouldn't have gotten hurt had I played this type of dodgeball....
