Well a few months ago E cut that same finger chopping apples and I took him for stitches. The dr at urgent care said his finger obviously had a bigger issue, so we were referred toa hand surgeon.
Two days later we had xrays and saw the bones in his finger were in two pieces. We scheduled reconstructive surgery for December.
Surgery went great and a pin was placed to hold the bone graft from his wrist. All was healing nicely till V smashed into it goofing around. E's finger was infected the next day and abscessed. After two weeks of antibiotics, the pin had to be removed.
The infection is gone now but the bones couldn't heal well so he is going to be receiving a bone stimulator to use every day!
Hopefully my littpe guy will be as good as new by summer. He's had to be careful and not allowed to ride bikes or jump on the trampoline until he's healed up.
