Tomorrow will make two weeks since my knife did its thing on my pinkie. I used a butterfly bandage covered by a large bandage and tape for the first week. The whole pinkie was covered and sealed. Then three days with a large bandage and tape, but no butterfly bandage. Next three days with just a small bandage covering only the wound itself. Now it is open and again playing in the dirt. Today it helped plant pole beans. Of course I documented the healing process. The pictures, all but the last, were taken when the bandages came off during cleaning. I love watching wounds heal.
