Karma is a bitch

OK so I made a comment about Jared breaking his hand while gettign hit over the head and... well - it's sort of a long story but here we go.

So me and my bosses daughter are moving a box (about 100 pounds) from a pick up to a big truck and my hand is under the box (cause I'm gonna pick it up) and she pushes - my pinky gets caught between the box the tail gate adn the truck bed and she pushes.  I let go of the box (once I get it up off my hand) and it starts tipping tword me - Sarah notices and grabbs the box adn then turns to me once we get the box in the big truck and says "You NEVER let go of a box - I've never seen you do that." and I'm just stairing at my pinky she siad I said "Huh?" like I was saying how odd and then she looked at my hand and saw this gash runnign from the tip to the second joint.  I try to bend it and it's a no go - I say "i think it may be broken" and Karla comes over. 

Sarah: I guess we know why you let go of the box 
Karla: I don't wnat to know how deep that is but we have bandaids. 
Me: It's bleeding. 

And at that point it started gushing blood.  So what do I do?  I keep working.  I work all flipping day.  I went back to the office around 2 and had one of the mothers clean it and bandige it for me (yeah I went from 10 to 3 with a dirty wound on my hand) and now I can move the joint by my hand and one up from it - with pain, but it moves so I don't think it's broken, but I may have doen soemthign to the ligaments in the tip of my finger... I will give it a few days and then will seek medical attention. 

The reason for that is that they can't do much for crushign injurys anyway...

*hugs* I really hope it keeps getting better and you can move more joints. It definatly wouldn't be a bad idea to get it checked--when I broke my toe, my mother forced me to get it checked and I was glad I did.

Yeow!

Yeah, you should have that looked at right away, esp. if it's broken. And pour antiseptic on the wound like crazy in the meantime. Keep it nice and clean.

I don't think it is broken any more - I still can't move the one joint but I don't think it's broken.
