I was an idiot yesterday and caught my ring finger in the car door, bled like a waterfall, fainted on Haight Ashbury in San Francisco. Luckily my man and sis were there to help. The ambulance guys wrapped my finger and then we went to emergency.
Luckily nothing is broken and they glued the top of my finger back on. The clenaing out hurt like hell but they advised a tetanus shot and that hurt almost worse..at least today my whole arm is killing me and I can barely lift it. Why is this?
Why is a tetanus shot necessary? If they cleaned the wound out so well, why did I need it?
My finger it seems will end up being fine...I still haven't been able to bear to look at it as the glue has to set and I am squeamish anyhow. Everone else who saw it was impressed!!!! LOL
