First thing’s first: the stitches are out! I’m quite happy to have the splint off, since while it wasn’t horrible, it definitely made simple, day-to-day tasks that much more difficult. I see a hand specialist in the coming weeks to make sure there isn’t any terribly permanent damage (my PCP tested the tendon when she removed the sutures – everything seems fine with it according to her), and hopefully to get some physical therapy. While it isn’t horribly bad, I can’t bend the finger nearly as much as my other fingers, and I have a feeling it’s due to scar tissue so close to the knuckle. So, we’ll see what can be done. *shrug*

Anyway, this week’s Challenge over at terribleminds was to come up with a good title for a piece to be written afterward. Well, I don’t work well like that. Even if I have a working title in mind, I generally base the title of a work off of something that arises within the manuscript itself, to make it a bit more apt to the work. So, instead of doing that I wrote a quick piece based off of a writing prompt over at creativewritingprompts.com; said prompt being “Her laugh broke the silence.”
