I went to the orthopedist this morning. Looks like as far as these kinds of breaks go, this was a mild one. No need for a cast, and I should be able to be out of the splint in ten days, followed by four weeks of physical therapy.
More good news: I should be able to type and use my left hand as soon as the pain goes away, which should be relatively soon. Hooray for that. I’m sick of only having one hand. You get a much greater understanding for people with disabilities when something like this happens. I can’t put on my jeans, tie my own shoes, put in my lenses–all sorts of things I normally just take for granted.
Anyway–that”s about all the one-handed typing I’ve got in me for now. In the meantime, if you haven’t entered the contest to win an advance copy of my book, now would be an excellent time. 🙂
See you all tomorrow.
