Dare I ask what other bad news is coming my way?

With money starting to get sickeningly tight, I discover that my poor finger is going to have a splinter of bone broken off, probably forever. This might cause a small amount of difficulty in that my typing speed is cut by 80% and I can't do...you know...my job.

If you like, and are not of the squeamish sort, you can see what the finger looked like three weeks ago.
