Old cutter, I reckon you may need a tetanus jab for that Stanley, give the surgery a ring.

Keep an eye on the colour of that nail bed, Stanley. If it starts to look dusky, circulation could have been affected.

That is going to hurt tomorrow!

Will do Maz, thanks for the warning. My tetanus jabs are up to date Ian. Old dog for a hard road!
Off to bed now to quietly heal up......

I would recommend a visit to your health centre and let the treatment room nurse have a look at it. They may apply some Steri strips to pull the wound together which will speed up the healing process.

...don't go slathering it in ancient home remedies from rusty old tins..
You need some Iodine/Betadine...that is the brown stuff they swab you with before operations. Use it liberally.

Thanks all of you. It was washed with cold water and covered with a sterile dressing while it was still bleeding and then strapped over the top. It's a good colour, not painful if I am not using it (beyond a bit of soreness). I considered re-dressing it last night but decided to leave it alone to let it get on with healing. I shall do nothing today but read......

Hard luck, Stanley. Trousers down and get your Tet jab: Why do they always give the shot in the boottocks as Forrest Gump would say?

No jab needed. If you have had five tetanus jabs over a lifetime you are protected. I have had at least seven not counting the army!
I am having time off until I heal up lads. Not nice if I knock it!

That's good to know. I should be OK also.

Sorry lads but I am not going back in the shed until my finger is healed. It's doing OK and I will take the dressing off and have a look at it on Monday happen.....

I've had the dressing off and inspected progress. Still partially open wounds even though they are healing well. It's going to take a lot longer lads and I am not going to risk any damage. Talk amongst yourselves! I shall return......

I have to report I'm getting a shed itch. I want to strip my door lock down and find out what has gone wrong.... But I am fighting it.

That finger will be quite stiff and uncooperative for a bit once it returns to action.

I've been doing my best to exercise it Maz even though it is restricted by the dressing. I trimmed both ends of it down to allow a bit more movement. Won't be long before I take it off, I feel the time is ripe! Not ready for no dressing but certainly a far lighter one.

I had a look at it lads. Improving but still nowhere near ready for shed work. Be patient, I shall return!
