Update on it.... doing well and usable but if my hands get cold outside it hurts like a toothache. not sure whats up with that.  :(
Mine were doing that too. Seems to get better after a couple weeks. I have a bandaid on mine now. The nail's half off, and I don't want it ripped off before it's all ready to let go.

It amazes me how long it takes for a nail to regrow
There is a time proven way to make the nail grow faster but you need a special recipe:

"Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of Newt,  and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."
And now I know why you're called the Magicman!

I caught a finger nail in the tail gate of dump truck when I was in high school. I didn't do it, but a doctor drilled a small hole to relieve the pain, it got better instantly. Before he did it I remember feeling every heart beat.

I once closed the back door on a 1950 Ford on my thumb.  Had to take the other hand and open the door before I could get it out.  It got drilled with a pocket knife.

Nice catch, JJ.  ;D

My entire career was in machine shops with all kind of ways to get hurt but my most serious accident was with a 24OZ ball peen hammer. I was driving 3/8" dowel pins into steel and with a good swing the pin kicked away and I wacked my thumb, broken bone, 5 stiches, and lost the nail. I didn't need to drill that one it was self relieved.

Once had a Doctor take a syringe with a needle on it and jeat it red hot with a lighter. Sort of twisted burnt a hole that nail. Didn't hurt since fluid had not built up yet. The broke finger it was attached to was doing a good job of it.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

Just read this post.  I laughed so much at DonPís post I had to read it to my wife.  

I think last time I had this type thing happen I used a knife point to drill through.  Iíll need to try the paper clip if/when there is a next time.  Thanks for that Doc!

I do these at work often.  The key is to make sure there is a build up of blood so you can stop as soon as you see a spurt.  So the knife, bit, hot object does not cut/burn the underlying skin in the nail bed.  We use a battery operated pen cautery.  Your nail is like hair s o it does not hurt.  The trick is trying to convince a 5 y/o that it will feel better after you poke it with a red hot wire.  think_not
