Thumbs down

Anurag's thumb got caught in the door yesterday. Its something that I am generally paranoid about as I always watch for little fingers on the edge before shutting any door (especially the car door). Yet, it happened by accident, right in front of me. His thumb started to bleed and swelled up. We rushed him to the hospital and got an x-ray done. Thankfully there was no fracture. We were referred to a surgeon since the cut is where his nail meets the skin. Fortunately the surgeon thought that the nail (which is all blue) will come out on its own and a new nail should be able to grow in its place. The thumb looks pretty ugly but the little guy is now oblivious to it now and is back to being merry.
