    I'm typing with my other fingers. This isn't my first finger injury, lol. I've had to learn over the years how to type without one of my thumbs or without one of my index fingers. It's slower, but it still works out good. I've also been avoiding writing, cooking and anything else that might put any pressure on the finger or bring it into contact with bacteria.

    Now my husband is all worried about me and says I should use a tweezers to pull up the bobbin thread. Might not be a bad idea!

    Nope, no auto sew button. I'll be taking apart my foot pedal, now, though, after all of the others suggested that that might be part of hte problem. I already removed the base of the sewing machine and cleaned a lot of lint from there.

Suddenly, my needle went down, back up, down again and then back up again, through my finger, nail and all! I had to slide my finger off of the needle. Worst part is, my foot wasn't on or near the foot pedal. My LQS says this happens sometimes when there's lint in the base of the machine.

    So, now, I'm slightly nauseous, dizzy and lightheaded. Thankfully, DH was home from work today and came to the rescue with the first aid kit. My finger's pretty numb at the moment and bandaged to the hilt, so I'm just reclining and recuperating. And thankfully, there's no blood on the quilt.
    Well, I finally got a hold of my doctor's nurse after playing phone tag on Friday. I'm going in tomorrow for a booster shot and the nurse is going to check the injury site. It looks a little black under the nail and they want to make sure it's cleaned out as well as can be.
