FTC 2012 Day 28
I didn't mention that on Wednesday morning I damaged my thumb rushing to get ready for work (its an embarrassing story - I got my thumb stuck in the back of my trainer whilst putting it on in a hurry so when I put my full weight onto my heel I heard a huge crack).
My thumb started to swell up really badly and by the time I got to work it was very swollen indeed. The school nurse suspected a broken bone! She told me to go to A&E to get it checked out. Two hours, two different investigations of my thumb and an X-ray later the doctor informed me it was just a bad sprain. Very lucky indeed.
I was having visions of having my thumb in plaster - I thought about how I could request for my hand to be set in a gripping position so I could keep rowing!
