Be careful when working on stuff. While roll baling hay, a large stick damaged the hay guides and I went to pull the broken guide out. The main guard frame was under pressure, and when I pulled the broken guide rod out, the frame caught my index finger.
Peeled all the skin off my knuckle & folded it back to one side. That was 2 days ago, and the skin flap has taken back real well. Going to get me one of those plastic finger guards today to make darn sure I don't forget & bend this finger too far & break the skin loose again. Sure is a tough place to heal with any finger bending. You guys be careful....more careful than I was!

Any joint or bend is a tough healing spot,the worst part is that any injury seems to get banged and hit while in the healing process, Hope it heals up good for you without any problems.Larry

Well, they don't make a finger splint big enough for my fingers! Their so called "large" might work on my pinky! Just bought a box of oversize band-aids that will stiffen enough to remind me to watch out. Not had a problem during milking, but I banged it twice today putting the Cherokee into park!!!

Sorry for your injury Daniel. That looks sore! They may look kind of weird, but pop sickle sticks work pretty good for a splint... at least good enough for when you are working.

LOL... While in town, I told the wife that the $4 for a finger splint would buy me a bunch of splints....in the form of popsicles, all the splints PLUS the sicles themselves. LOTS better deal!

I am surprised you didn't need stitches! you know, i have used that nu-skin for injuries to joints...it stings but it works. then u don't have to fool around with band aids.

Maybe could have used some stitches, but with sorry insurance that costs me $1500 a month, I have to tough as much out as I can. My deductible is $3 Grand/year. Sad, but true, so unless my life is at stake, I doctor myself as much as possible. I have to pay the high insurance to save the farm in case of catastrophic injuries or illness. Not familiar myself to "Nu-Skin".

I think Nu-Skin is like super glue. It keeps the wound closed so dirt and stuff can't get into it. I personally use super glue most of the time for cuts. It works great!
