Probably too late, but ER, or even better yet, hospitol!

I had that in my thumb when I was 12 or so. They caught it early enough, but to this day I don't have feeling in the top joint of my thumb. This resulted in my pulling my thumb out of a locked car door and damaging even more. Not fun.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I'm so mad. His freaking step father ended up talking him out of going to the ER saying it looks like it could just be a bad bruise. That area of his skin wasn't hit by the hatchet at all and it really doesn't look like regular bruising to me and he said it doesn't hurt like a bruise would since he has absolutely no feeling there. There is definitely nerve damage for sure and the doctor had said he would probably have nerve damage, but there is just something so off about this that I really just want him to go in and not risk possibly losing his thumb.

He's being so **** stubborn that I just ended up saying, "FINE! But if you lose your **** thumb don't you dare complain to me about it!"

I'm so mad at his step dad right now too for not seeing the urgency in this

Augh! That's scary and frustrating. Dumb stepdad. I wish Josh would just go in. Do you guys have insurance to cover the visit? If so, there really isn't an excuse.

I urge you to urge him to reconsider. Insurance or no insurance, its not worth losing your thumb over.

Make him go. A bruise would have shown up before now. If hes not feeling anything in that area its a cause for major concern.

Fresh bruising isn't gray. He very well may lose his thumb. I'd go to the ER, insurance or not. Consulting his step dad for medical advice was a bone head move,.

If he's worried about the cost, try to find an urgent care center-they tend to be cheaper.

Doesn't he work with his hands? Impress upon him what losing his thumb would do to his ability to work....

Hoping for a good update....
