The body is crazy. I smashed my thumb a few months ago and it is still healing. Half of my nail turned black and fell off. But the other half is still stuck on. The healing process is amazing. It has been so slow. I have been amazed by the patience and determination of my body. The way it constantly moves forward and heals slowly but surely. My nail still looks pretty gross. But that’s fine. Soon enough it will be all better.
Note to self: don’t smash your fingers!! It takes forever to heal.
