Good to see you're healing up and keeping up with the therapy.

Just remember... chicks dig scars!

On the bright side Mel, if you lost your hole hand that would be one less thing to worry about getting cut off on the drilling rig. Glad to see your making a good recovery.

Ah, good 'ol hand therapy! The best part of that were the hot wax dips and massages. I bet they have you squeezing all sorts of spring-loaded gadgets.

It looks like your thumb and hand in general are still swollen - it takes a surprisingly long time for that to go away. It's frustrating since the swelling limits the amount you can stretch and bend your fingers, and they need all the stretching they can get.

Hang in there!
