Didnít hurt. Swelling didnít go down much, even still swollen. Some beers can help you make the right decision sometimes.

letting the blood out just cuts down on the pain, the swelling will go down in time, faster if you wrap ice pack around your hand and finger...

That hack company was commission so time off for PT, was money lost. Same company that made me want nothing to do with the plumbing trade.... guess itís in my blood from my grandfather though... kinda like the mafia.



Was it a roto prefix company?

Second bleeding tonight. Probably same amount of blood, but she went through the nail a bit rough and I jerked. Some got on her blanket. Tissue didnít catch it.

Dull pain vs sharp pain now. But if something isnít hurting Iím not making money. Knees starting to hurt again and there was another usual pain I felt today. Rotator?

If Iím going to keep going long term, I need to quit plumbing and stick with drains. I canít leave my Master hanging though. That other was a joke too the Master license!

Worst for me so far was back in my tradesman days. I was told to pull a 3" test ball from a second story stack, someone had put strap-iron on the 3" stack to get it back in the wall.

When I pulled the test ball water started go everywhere so I pulled hard and fast to get it out, sliced my thumb open on the strap iron, down to the knuckle bone.

It was my first day on at a new plumbing company I didn't want to get in trouble so I ducktaped and electrical taped the heck outta it.

A week later I was mixing concrete in my driveway in a 5 gallon bucket making an anchor for my jon-boat. My neighbor came over, he is a doctor. He saw my thumb and asked why it was so swollen, red, and puss. He called in some anti-biotics and it cleared up.

Now I have a nice scar on my thumb, lucky I didn't loose the finger. I also where gloves now.
