The minor surgery on my hand seems to have gone well. That chunk of safety glass that's been embedded in my hand since my accident last year is finally out. It was quite the epic struggle getting it out. It was a lot larger than my doctor expected and lodged in a fair bit of scar tissue. He had to excise quite a bit. The piece of glass was shaped like a tooth with two jagged prongs off the main body which probably explains the constant bruising and sharp pains if I hit my hand at just the right angle.
Anyhow, they let me keep the glass so that's good :)
