You know the saying, thankful for small mercies? Well today was my appointment at the fracture clinic, I was a little nervous as this was a completely new experience for me and I didn't know what they would do to my finger.
Well, after waiting just a short time I got to see the doctor who showed us the x-rays again and pointed out the "break".
It turns out it is "just" a hairline fracture so as long as I am careful, no heavy lifting or bashing my hand it should heal within 6 weeks - phew.
A picture of my poorly hand - so much better than the big bandage that made my hand practically immobile!
Now the trick will be all about getting the right balance, in using it enough but not doing too much!
