Physical Therapy required?

Neil plays basketball on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. He goes at 5:30. One morning I heard Neil in the shower and when I looked at the clock it said 6. I figured not enough guys showed up. When he got out of the shower he said he was on his way to the ER He had "done something" to his finger. After an hour at the ER and $1000 bucks later we were told he would need physical therapy for his pinkie. What?! After a visit to an ortho. doc we were told no he doesn't really need physical therapy. Thank goodness we have great insurance and it didn't cost us a dime!

These pictures don't do justice. It looks like his finger is just moved to the side....but that is as close to his other fingers as it could go. He couldn't move it at all.

Hurt fingers give me the heebie jeebies vs hurt toes/something else etc.. hands are my life and that sucks!!! POOOOR NEIL!! I feel so bad for him!!! BUTTTT hey.. since he cant close it, he can still sign ILY and that pinky stick out just fine!!!
