I could see Taffy coming at me, but didn't move my hands off the wheel. Stupid. My hand hurt afterwards, but I figured it was just a bit sprained. I've broken my wrist before, so I know what that feels like. Definitely just a sprain...
Only it got worse rather than better. So today I figured I'd better get it looked at. One X-ray later and it seems I have a fracture of the first proximal phalanx. Or thumb, as it's sometimes known. It's only a tiny fracture, where the ligament joins the bone, but it definitely is fractured. They've given me a wrist/thumb brace, but don't seem inclined to do much more about it. "It'll hurt, take some pain killers if you need them and it'll heal up eventually". Umm, OK.
