Thanks for the well wishes for my moronic mishap. My hand is feeling fine.
Honestly, I’m struggling more with
1. Encouraging the band-aid to stay stuck on my palm, a creased and sweaty spot for anything to adhere to.
2. The tetanus shot the nurse discovered I needed, since my last puncture had been about 12 years ago. It feels like Hulk Hogan punched me in the shoulder. Jerk.
