Apparently very few people have had actual sewing accidents. While I was googling the likelyhood of the worst happening to me, I realized most people only know of someone who had a horror story Well now I have my own to tell.
Yes, look a little closer. That is a foreign object inside my finger. More specifically, it is the broken off tip of an embroidery needle. I thought for sure it was impossible that there was any chance the needle had remained inside my finger. I kept telling my mom to calm down and get me a bigger band-aid. Well that was a week ago. We never could find the broken piece of the needle, and now we know why. The cut was healing well, so I didn't worry. Then I noticed a pricking feeling every time I used my finger tip. Something was not right. Doctor #1 could not get it out because the scar tissue was too deep and the tweezers were too small. After leaving with my lightly bandaged open wound, I am now waiting for the hand surgeon to fit me in. Praying for quick removal and recovery!
