no, i don't think it's broken. i've broken several fingers before so i definitely know how that feels vs. a sprain- i think it's just badly sprained. (some sprains can hurt worse than a break though so i think that's what's happened) i mean he bent it ALL the way back!
I put it in a splint- it is much better having it in a splint vs. tapped with my other finger! The wrap i had around it was making my skin itch like crazy
And i'm doing like you suggested and icing it
So hopefully it will be better soon! It sure makes it hard to work/type/wash my hair and all with it like this but at least it's a pink finger and not an index or thumb (i've hurt them all at one point in time so the pinky is the lesser of the evil
) Today Fosters and I spend 30 minutes working on "Down" "stay" and "no jump" commands
Bless his heart!!!
