Dislocated Finger

Post by Joshoowah » Mon Dec 10, 2018 8:46 am

Petty as I think it is, my wife says I should ask for prayer. I dislocated my little finger about 4 weeks ago now. I had it popped back in the day of. The knuckle is still obnoxiously large and I have about 40-50% range of motion, which some say is normal and others say it is not so. I go see an orthopedic next week, hoping he tells me it's all good and I'll regain full function eventually, but I fear I'll need surgery to break up the cartilage and possibly reattach some ligaments. Not sure at this point. So, just lift up a prayer or two for me, please.

Side note: I've broken every one of my fingers and this one just doesn't seem right. I'd take a break any day over this stupid thing.

That's not petty at all. Praying, bud.

Hope that pinkie gets to feeling better, Josh.

When I took a spill on my bike many weeks back, somehow I jammed both middle fingers and they were stiff and painful for some time. This was in addition to my bruising my left shoulder pretty good.

Not sensitive at all. If you want to know how I've broken them all, it's American football and playing drums in the winter for the marching band.

The pinky is my preferred nose-picking digit. It's light and nimble.

This is serious stuff we're talking about and I'm praying you get full use back quickly.

I know how it is to have something medical bugging you. Prayer said.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV
