Sort of a Broken Finger

I went to the gym yesterday and did a CrossFit class. While throwing the medicine ball against a wall I ended up catching it on the tip of my left middle finger (instead of in my palm). I thought it was just a minor sprain. When I got back to work I did it on ice. But when I woke up this morning it was very swollen (and purple). I can barely bend it (makes getting dressed and braiding my hair a little bit of a challenge). An orthopedic Physician's Assistant looked at the xrays and find a tiny tiny chip on the end next to the knuckle. Just have to wait it out, for the swelling to go down on it's own.


  1. Ouch! I hope that your finger heals quickly!

  2. If you get a splint, you can "salute" with impunity.

  3. No splint. Swelling much improved. Almost full movement again (but my ring is still a little tight).
