The Hand Report
Quick update on the hand: We went to a hand surgeon today to make sure I had not severed any tendons and possibly remove the two stitches. Doc says the stitches stay in for another week until the swelling and bruising goes down but it doesn't look like I caused any permanent damage (whew). A week from Tuesday I'll see him again, probably get the stitches out, and hopefully not need any further treatment/surgery.
Quite the price to pay for homemade guacamole:
-Emergency room trip for hand laceration: $2,600+
-Seeing a hand specialist for 15 minutes: $140
-Having two working hands: Priceless.
I used to sit in the cube behind you. Then I didn't. And then we fell in love.
