Update And Nail Art

I had yet another operation from when I fell during a woodland walk and broke both wrists and lacerated my left hand. Yeah, tell me again how getting out in nature is good for you.

ANYWAY, this time they removed a nasty li’l chunk o’ wood, and I’m singing:

I got no wood inside my hand
It makes me feel so fucking grand
Wood belongs inside a tree
There is no wood in me.

I hope.

My nails this week — yes, of course I did my nails the day after the operation. I can barely type, but I can paint and stamp my nails — are purple, because I got a bunch of purple polish I hardly ever use. Also I did some fluid art.

I’ll pop in again on Thursday for Thursday Doors.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Great looking nails. The operation sounds like it was successful. I’m glad they found something (and removed it). Maybe this is the last line in that story??? I hope so.

    I’m so glad the operation went well! Wishing you a complete (and quick) recovery. Love the little poem / song that came out of your accident, though. Gorgeous nails, too!

    The gift that keeps on giving – there was an episode of House where it turned out all the problems were because the patient (and his whole community) had the habit of chewing on toothpicks all the time. The patient accidentally swallowed a piece of wood (sound familiar? Maybe they’re out to get us for cutting them down and burning them?) from a toothpick, and it went on its merry way through their whole body (sharp end piercing through all kinds of things) causing every possible different symptom.

    Never forgotten that one.

    Hope your little inclusion is the end of this nonsense!

    Oh thank goodness! How did they miss a piece of wood in the first place? Or was it in a place they couldn’t reach at the time? Anyway, I hope that’s the last and ONLY bit of a tree you’ll be carrying around. Hope this means you’ll get completely well again very soon. -hugs-

      I think the ER was more interested in treating the breaks than in searching the wound. It really should have been surgically searched instead of just stitched up, but that’s what I get for going to the local hospital. They’re great for some things, but not for tricky things like deep and dirty wounds.
