Thanks for the prayers, y’all.

Update: I go to the hand specialist Wednesday. I was hopeful that they could save my finger tip, but now I don’t think that’s a possibility. I’m pretty certain I’ll lose the majority of my figure tip.

The skin fell off exposing the dead tissue. Within a couple hours, it was hard as a rock.

Here’s what it looks like now:


A few days ago when it starting shedding:




Here’s part of the finger tip that’s completely dead:




No matter what happens, I still give God the glory. There’s plenty folks far off worse than I am.

Hoping I can be able to hunt this year.

Yep

Tip won’t make it

Good thing is the rest of the finger will. Best to bite the bullet and go ahead and remove it at the joint above and let it heal on up

The black tip won’t heal

Dang, hope it gets better!

I have a wart on the tip of my right-hand pointer finger that came back a few months ago. I was telling the wife a few days ago, I should go in and get it freezed off.

Think I'm going to delay that for a bit.

At least most of the pad looks healthy so you should still have a functional trigger finger.

Good luck Leon!

That is incompetence and malpractice. Inexcusable. Have a lawyer write a letter and send pictures, along with documentation of the required surgery. The doctor's malpractice insurance company will just write the check without fighting it.

Put some duct tape on it, or just the adhesive part of a band aid. I had a few warts on my hands when I was a teenager and this did the trick for mine after they came back from freezing them.

Good to see that you're in the right place, giving glory to our Lord. Cause you're right, it can always be worse. I'm glad it's no worse for you than it is. I'll continue my prayers for you, brother.



And I'm just thankful I can get out of bed every morning.



You can always switch to a thumb release if you need to. I'll lone ya my best one. I switch between a thumb release and trigger release all the time. Makes me focus more on what I'm doing.


I had been using a thumb release one year when I broke my right thumb behind the first joint. I wasn't certain at first. But after swinging a 2.5 pound sledge in a metal shop all day for two weeks, I decided to tell my boss. He sent me to the doc. Doc just confirmed it and told me they don't immobilize breaks that far up the thumb unless they have to pin them. He then told me to "use the other hand to swing my sledge" . I still just powered through the rest of bow season.

Update on my zombie finger:

Saw the hand surgeon yesterday. He said what I have is known as “dry gangrene”, which is actually a good thing in my situation. It denotes no infection.

He also said my body is in the process of “auto-amputation”. That’s also a good thing because as the dead tip shrinks up, new skin is regenerating below that dead part.

At this point, every millimeter of tissue that regenerates is less that they have to cut off. He’s seeing me in another week and we’ll go from there. Then, he’ll decide on just how much he’ll cut off.

On the bright side, I get to keep whatever they take. That finger’s been with me for 43 years. We had some good times together.

I’m thinking of making something cool out of it. Maybe a Christmas ornament or a pendant.

Taking suggestions.

Call me crazy or whatever but honest this works, take some thin cardboard, you know the non corrugated stuff, shoe boxes. Rough up an edge on it. Rub that edge really hard on the wart and say, "..." just kidding you don't have to say anything but to wow the kids say go away 3 times. Then, quickly take it out and bury it. As it decomposes, the wart will disappear.

All of the kids in my family had warts. The first 2 tried the Compound W then tried freezing them and finally tried the cardboard. Me? I went straight to the cardboard. It worked the same for all of us. And we never got warts again.

I read something a few months ago why this works. There's a mixture of chemicals on the cardboard that kill the virus in about the same time it takes to decompose, which is about 14-21 days.

I'm a Christian and do not believe in witchcraft.
