Pinkie Progress

I just wanted to let you all know (just in case you were wondering)
 that living with 9 fingers isn't really that big of a deal.
I mean, I feel self-conscious a lot, but whatever, a missing finger
 is hardly what people look at when they are looking at me, you know?
Sometimes I forget, for example:
ME: "Lottie we are leaving in 5 minutes" 
then I hold up my hand 4 fingered hand.
**
Or sometimes I say to the Little Nies or the kids I teach in church 
ME: "High five me".  Then they look at me and say 
"You mean high 4 you?".  
**
Or sometimes I still think it's there and I try and hang
my purse on my crooked pinkie, like I used to. 
 Whifffff.
Oh then there is the blasted phantom pain.  
Sometimes it really aches or I feel super sharp pains.
Or sometimes I go to itch it- that feels weird, you know because
it's not there anymore.
I am on some nerve medication that
 (I think) is helping me get that pain under control.
It hurts to touch it or to clap, but I'm pretty sure that will all 
go away with time.
Mr. Nielson tells me a joke and teases me about it everyday, and
it never gets old and I laugh probably 90% of the time.
Get it? 90% of the time?
