I started to panic because I had cut my left thumb open. I was scared because I thought my thumb was going to fall off.
"COLE! I JUST CUT MY THUMB OPEN!"
I ran inside to show my dad my thumb. He was shocked and I was so scared.
"We have to go to the hospital NOW!"
The doctor took me back to clean my thumb and then get X-rays. I was nervous because he said I could have cut my tendon.We had to stay there for 8 and a half hours.
"Alright, let's take a look at your thumb!"
A few weeks later I had to get surgery on my thumb because I found out I had cut my tendon. I was happy that it was going to get repaired.
"We are now gonna use a medicine that will make you sleep through the surgery!"
"In a few more weeks you will be able to get your thumb moving around again!"
After my surgery, I had to get therapy to get my thumb moving around again. I was finally happy that I did not have to go through any more pain.
"Then I will finally be able to play basketball again!"
The lesson that I had learned from this situation is to understand how to do things before you try to do something you don't know how to do. Now, I am more careful and if I want to try something crazy or risky I always figure out how to do it first. From that day up until now I still cannot bend the tip of my thumb, and I know I most likely won't be able to move it ever again because of the fact that I tried something I did not know how to do.
