Week Two: Will the nail regrow if you lost half of your finger tip

After the surgery, they moved me to a common hospital room. “Common” meant 8 other patients shared it. The patients were male, heavy snoring included.  Anyway, I was too exhausted to bother and felt asleep almost immediately, refusing painkillers and sedatives once again.
Separate room. Much more personal.
The next day my insurance company finally managed to get me a separate room my plan provided, and I moved in. Things started to settle.

Treat small hand burns, reduce pain without medication and heal faster

When I was a kid, we used to like burning camp fires a lot. Fire is magnificent. Gathering wood in the forest, setting up the fire, gathering even more wood to keep it burning, and finally sitting around it mesmerised by the flames… there’s something fascinating about it. That’s what our prehistoric ancestors did. That’s what helped them live longer, survive the Ice Age and eventually evolve in what we are now.
Beautiful fire

The Fifth Element was released in 1997 and the CGI looks dated now, but the costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier are still too haute couture for everyday wear. Anyway, the concept behind this scene is fascinating.
