Yeah Doc, that stone don't look too good, but I have already replaced it with another, softer, one. I don't have any of the other fracture symptoms, no point pressure or discoloration, was more concerned about intracranial hemorrhage, which I have no indicators for. Also, no meds to mess things up, I am drug free. If I was on thinners, I would have been in the E/D that night because you don't get a lot of second chances with that. (Beer however, is a different story, but I am staying away from that until things are back to what represents normal for me.)
 @moosehunter : Ice may help that but just because it ain't broke doesn't mean you may not have a problem. Digits are pesky little things, you may have cut the muscle or done some good nerve damage. Keep a close eye on that, by now the pain should be pretty much gone except when you bend or use it. If that is not the case, or bending it makes you feel like heaving, you'd better get it checked out. (And Yes, this is the pot calling the kettle black, I am aware.) Good luck with it.

It only hurts enough to remind me what I did! Now last night when I knocked on the neighbors door with that hand,... Does that count as a continuation of the same dumb thing or is that a separate dumb thing?

I think it's not a new one, I believe it is more like 'multiplier points' or something like that. ;D :D

It never fails. If I injure a finger that is the one that takes the hit every time I walk by a sharp corner or need something. Years ago I took the tip off the second finnger of my left hand in a table saw, had a splint. Every so often I would hit the underside of the dash of my pick up while rolling the window up, I would roll to the side of the road, throw it out of gear, suck wind and wipe the tears. Man, that hurt.

I dunno, looks like you got a pretty good run toward the bone before it stopped, but There doesn't seem to be a lot of bruising, so it should heal up ok. The photos aren't the game here, or I hope not. I waited over two days to take mine, mostly because it was the only way I could see it (I am not discussing this with my wife). I should have gotten one before I cleaned myself up. I do have one of the shirt because I am going to have to get a replacement next year and I might need proof. It doesn't look as bad as it could have.  ;D

Yeah, it kinda did, well it still does. I have a full blown schedule overloaded at work and it's nuts, so I can't take any time off. But I am taking it easy at home, just doing a few things and getting to bed early. I just wish this persistent headache would go away. The cut is pretty much dried up now, no seeping at all today and it survived the shower tonight. I'll live, always have so far. ;D

I have traveled across the border and took the 401W, then crossed over at Sault St Marie, MI just to avoid getting near Chicago!

To me, it was well worth the trip!
You really took the long way around, I dont find traveling through Detroit to the border Windsor or vis versa a problem very straight forward. Chicago is busy in rush hr. but I try to plan it out to avoid it if possible.If you take Sarnia it would be better and still avoid Detroit.

Well, My home is here in NY and I was stationed at Ellsworth AFB, SD!  I spent 8 years there and travelled home every other year for leave and always looked for something different!  My normal route from home was to go South on I-81 until I got to I-80, the take I-80 all the way to Sioux City, IA (to avoid the cities and the toll roads), then I-29N to Sioux Falls, SD, then I-90 to Ellsworth AFB!
So, going through Canada to Sault St Marie was a welcome change!

Yup that makes sense.  We have the pass for tolls and if the traffic is light can make it through Chicago with out slowing up, that would be around 8,9 PM.

Hi...
I dont know if this will work.

I fell up my unfinished concrete stairs. Now have 6 inch scar on forearm. Treated with swearing, cold water and honey!

Good luck.

Falling up stairs counts!  Heck falling counts!

I am very new and also that dreaded thing, female! I avoid doctors and hospitals like the plague. Standard comment to children, dont come running to me with a broken leg. Please smile.
They have managed a few other things...
General comment...unless you can see bone or pumping blood (arterial) I dont really bother. Head wounds, a bit different. bleed like (EDITED BY ADMIN)  If they dont I worry!
Swearing, cold water and honey, with a bit of clean old sheet works well. Not as furry as proper bandages!
Any way up. IF you still have a headache after 3 days, go to the docs. Broken fingers and toes work well when braced with ice cream sticks and tape. Electrical for preference.
And I might send you a picture of my latest patient. Broken legged 3mo hen. Bit of a limp, but 3 weeks ago could not walk!
Please laugh at me..used to it...want to ask some sensible questions.

Ok!
Get that hairy leg up and in cool water, loads of salt. Like almost floating! It will hurt, but..
Assume not near femoral, (EDITED BY ADMIN)
You have tetanus injection?
Any sort of honey will work, proper un-past-your -eyes,  phonetic ( not messed about with is best) I cannot spell.
Leave the littlest bites uncovered. Wounds heal better uncovered.
You can to save your beauty..(lol very hairy legs)  when the scars start to form use a cold cream to soften scabs. NOT anything like the Q10 face cream stuff! Does Nivea or Ponds still exist in USA?
The Q10 stuff BURNS like fire!
I know, got impatient with a pressure cooker! No scars, but had blisters from mid forearm to mid shoulder both arms! Old fashioned Nivea, ran out..and put the Q10 stuff on instead...spent 10 minutes in the shower yelling!
Good luck..sorry old fashioned..

Thanks,

Pretending to be a bit dumb is the mission of my life. 

Do not tell anyone I actually have a brain please :D

They would expect me to join in with "REAL LIFE".
