And It Only Took A Year

It was a year ago that I snapped off a drill bit and embedded its raggedy shaft into my thumb below the base of the fingernail (“X” marks the spot).  Aside from the pain and embarrassment, and yes you can be embarrassed even when you are alone, I had to deal with the whole “coming apart” of the nail and its subcutaneous tissue.

But with careful attention and tending the damaged nail slowly sloughed off and new tissue grew out.  As it grew it was sorta rumpled, but eventually the regeneration was complete and just a couple days ago the final damage was trimmed away leaving a healthy and morphologically sound nail behind with no permanent damage.

I never cease to marvel at the amazing structures The Creator devised for us to live inside.
