i figured since there wasn't much going on here on the forum, i would post a pic of my "bionic" finger. i had surgery last monday and they placed a rod inside my finger to keep it from bending until the tore tendon heals. this would be the 3rd surgery that i have had to have on my right hand from tore tendons...you would think that i would have learn by now. the 1st incident came from a major motorcycle accident, the 2nd came from a bad dream when i punched my headboard during my sleep, and the 3rd, well, this is kinda embarassing, i was tucking in my shirt tail and tore it. the surgery wasn't too bad, i'm just dreading the removal of the rod. the doc said that i need to take a few pain pills before i arrive at the office...i take it that its gonna hurt. oh well, i've got plenty of time before our turkey season starts back up..we have no fall season here in georgia.
