June 9th - Six weeks (aka 42 days)

June 9th marks 6 weeks since I tore my tendon.

I've had the current splint on since June 2nd (8 days+) and it's working out great.

Seems like every 2-3 days, I need to apply more superglue and another layer of nail hardener. I think the next version should:

  • Hook over the end of the nail (distal). This makes the splint feel more secure.
  • Leave some nail exposed on sides and cuticle side. This would make it easier to re-apply layers of nail hardener. 
For nail hardener, I'm using OPI Nail Envy Matte Strength .5 oz. (it has a matte finish, so it blends in well with the matte finish of the plastic).
