I go to the Plastics Clinic tomorrow.
A number of scenarios are pre-playing in my head:
“Hmm. Doesn’t seem to be healing very well – you need to keep the splint on for at least 8+ weeks.”
“It doesn’t look like it is spontaneously re-attaching. You need surgery.”
I really, really want to think all will be well but I look back at past medical experiences and there seem to be a turbulent sea of health issues that turn out to be very rare/derived from usual normal, non-hazardous human activity/statistically bell curve bottoming out on worst case scenarios.
No need to wonder: I got injured by bedding (folding in a couch cover). The pathetic nature of the situation (and the resultant future AND the fact that I’ve been injured before on tour) makes me feel very depressed about my future.
