Check Out My Finger Nipple

Okay, okay...I can tell by the outpouring of concern couple of people who actually asked, that the burning question in all of your minds is..."How is Gwendomama's finger?"

Funny you should ask.

Because I was just looking at the super disgusting pictures I took of said finger a few weeks ago (The Accident was 22 days ago), and yesterday decided to take some updated photos.


A friend of mine asked her wife to look at my finger a week ago. Her wife is a vet, and she was clearly uncomfortable looking at my human finger, but she did look. And she said, although it was a circumferential cut, it looked good (I had been soaking it in betadine every day), but that it would be a miracle if the tip re-attached. It was more likely to fall off. Either way, it was going to make piano playing feel a little funny for a while. She did mention that if there was any chance at all of it re-attaching, I would need to keep it wrapped up with neosporin, keeping it moist under a bandage. So I did.


So yesterday, when I removed the bandaid for my superstar finger's photoshoot, imagine my surprise when (and this would be where I would link to the rest of this post to avoid grossing you out, but since I have no patience for inserting code and figuring that out, you will just have to muddle through or leave RIGHT NOW)...


The tip of my finger came off with the band-aid!
It was super gross! Want to see?



OMG the tip of my finger is falling off! Quick! Turn the picture around!






But no - not really. It turned out to just be the thin layer of skin which was sitting on top of my (previously) severed fingertip. When it came off, it revealed the now bubbled-up fingertip, which appears to have re-attached itself. It looks sort of like a blister, and is probably at least as painful, but this is my actual fingertip.



Actually, upon looking at those pictures more... it does not look like a blister so much as it looks like a nipple.

Look how sad my other finger looks.


Are you jealous of my finger nipple? Or would that be 'nipple finger'. As in, from now on I get to have: a thumb, index finger, middle finger, nipple finger, and pinky.

Behold! The Finger Nipple!

I'll wager that you are going to get a lot of hits from some very weird searches from now on . . .

gwendomama said...

yep, i wager i will too. i evev thought it through before i did it.

it just doesn't remind me of anything else quite as much as a nipple.

Lunasea said...

That has got to be the freakiest looking fingertip I've ever seen. It looks like a little rubber button to me - like if I pushed it you'd make some weird noise or change colors or something.

Cindy said...

You're right--a nipple. That is just crazy. Ya think it will stay like that???

Jess said...

Holy finger nipple!

My dad has a tongue nipple...as a child he bit threw it, and it healed over in much the same way....bubbley and nippley. What a weird way the body works to fix itself. But finger nipple is better then fall off finger, no?

jess said...

ha I spelled through as threw! It was the whole finger nipple thing, threw me off I swear!

jenk said...

Now, see? It looks just like a newbord boys little wee-wee to me. Am I crazy?

Tricia said...

Hmm, maybe a magic nipple...???

You could make the coolest finger person with that (please tell me I am not the only one who draws faces on my fingers for my childrens' amusement and entertainment?) Color the button in black and you have a beanie! Add a rim and you get a bowler hat!

You'll be the coolest Mom on the block!

gwendomama said...

inzaburbs - wow, that sounds jaunty! i may have to try that!
thanks!

Cheryl said...

ewwwwwwwwwwwww. I don't do well with painful things...or third nipples. LOL. I love your header - pooping with an audience. OMG. Me too. For 6 years now. *sigh*

Hey Gwen! Whatcha mean limited link? Am I missing something on my blog?

I decided against Blogher, but would love to talk to you again! Do you ever make it over the hill?

And ICK about the finger! Ban finger nipples!

Fluid Pudding's husband has a toe for a thumb. he lost his thumb in an accident, so his doctor took off his big toe and sewed it on as a thumb. you two should get together...

Tracey said...

THat's the first thing I thought, too: Ooooh!!! Strange googles are in store for Gwendomamma!!

Lin said...

Wow...so clean and magical looking.

I cannot convince my brain that that last picture is a finger nipple and not a nail-less toe. Either way, it reminds me of the time I was seven and was cutting up straws for my horses to eat (drinking straws! because horses eat straw!) and cut the pad of my index finger clean off. It grew back too. I didn't get a nipple though. =P
