So turns out my "sprained" finger after Thursday morning's sunrise session is broken. Pretty badly broken with a clean diagonal fracture across the entire width of the bone. Bummer.
I managed to talk the doc out of operating immediately to stick pins through it and instead am waiting on the outcome of a follow up x-ray next Friday. Keeping my other fingers crossed! Dear Santa - a fast healing finger for Christmas please!
I'm gutted because the season was going so well, I was on the verge of landing a bunch of new tricks and loving being on the water. But life isn't always fair and my life isn't all that bad even with a broken finger! This morning, when everyone else was launching, I took a long walk along the beach. White sand between my toes and crystal clean turquoise water in front of me. Not bad at all.
